Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing –

Lindsay has completed all 3 levels of training for EMDR practice 

EMDR is an information processing therapy that follows a structured format designed to maximise treatment benefits; it incorporates elements from many effective psychotherapies including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, experiential, and body-centered therapies.

Developed by Dr Francine Shapiro, it is one of only two approved treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, (NICE, 2005).  Issues are addressed using an eight-phase treatment approach and attention is given to the past, present, and the future:

  • Past – disturbing memories or related events
  • Present – current situations or triggers of physical, cognitive and emotional difficulty and/or distress.
  • Future – positive future action supported by skill and attitude development.
