EMDR Therapy Glasgow
EMDR Therapist Glasgow
We are proud at Psyche therapy to offer EMBR therapy in Glasgow. EMDR stands for, Eye Movement Desensitation and Reprocessing, it is a therapeutic approach that was developed in the late 1980s to help individuals overcome the negative effects of traumatic experiences.
The approach is based on the idea that trauma can cause psychological distress that becomes lodged in the brain, preventing individuals from moving past the traumatic event. EMDR seeks to help individuals process the trauma and associated memories in a way that allows for healing and resolution.
How Does EMDR Therapy work?
EMDR in Glasgow involves a therapist guiding a patient through a series of eye movements while the patient focuses on a particular memory or experience. The eye movements are designed to stimulate the brain and help it process traumatic memories.
The process is broken down into eight phases, including history-taking, preparation, assessment, desensitisation, installation, body scan, closure, and revaluation.
What are the Benefits of EMDR Therapy:
Reduces Symptoms of Trauma: EMDR has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of trauma, including flashbacks, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts.
Reduces Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression: EMDR has also been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression that are often associated with trauma.
Faster Results: EMDR has been shown to produce faster results than other types of therapy, with some individuals experiencing significant improvement after just a few sessions.
Long-Term Benefits: EMDR has been shown to produce long-term benefits, with many individuals experiencing continued improvement even after treatment has ended.
Non-Invasive: EMDR is a non-invasive form of therapy that does not require medication or other invasive treatments.
