EMDR is quick and effective

There are  4 main stages in EMDR therapy:

1) I will assess your psychological problem and check if you are ready for treatment. If so I will design you a treatment plan.

2) COPING SKILLS TRAINING. I will work with you to develop your coping skills to handle emotional distress and prepare you for the treatment.

3) THE EMDR TREATMENT. You will be in a comfortable chair or treatment couch. I use a light bar, headphones and hand sensors. The process of desensitisation removes associations associated with the traumatic memory.

4) REVIEW & ADJUSTMENT THERAPY. I will assess treatment progress and plan throughout.

EMDR is  very quick and effective. The number of sessions you need will depend on your problem. Most people need 12 EMDR sessions.
