Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

What is EMDR?

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) was developed by Francine Shapiro and was used initially to help with the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How does EMDR work?

EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting. Many types of therapy have similar goals. However, EMDR appears to be similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 week course which has flown by. The weekly sessions and homework have been extremely helpful in starting me on my mindfulness/meditation journey. Really enjoyed the science behind how meditation effects the brain positively. Elizabeth (course leader) has been a pleasure to see every week with her positive, uplifting approach to us as a group and mindfulness as a whole. I shall miss our weekly sessions

  • Very well presented with enthusiasm and lots of smiles. I enjoyed it and discussed it a lot with my partner so it was very relevant and real for me. It provides a further 'tool' for my therapy practice.

  • This course has really helped me get perspective on my life and how I handle difficult situations. I think the fact that our group was small meant that each person was able to open up and feel like their views and feelings were fully considered. It was really well organised and covered loads of useful topics. Thank You.

  • Having been interested in knowing what mindfulness was about, I have been pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. I have experienced subtle changes in the way I approach my life both consciously and unconsciously. It has made me more confident in being able to manage my daily life with a more realistic approach to my capabilities.
    Emma Butterworth
  • I found the course very good and enjoyed it very much. I feel that it will be useful in my day to day life and will definitely keep up the practice. I will miss the Tuesday sessions. I have recommended the course to all my friends and colleagues.
    Rebecca Richards
  • A great introduction to mindfulness would recommend this course to anyone needing to slow down. Some really useful, practical (and mindful) tips to take away!
