Eye Movement Therapy (EMDR) for Depression
I asked Trevor Beech will EMDR help with depression and anxiety?
I have used EMDR for depression and anxiety with many clients with a good success rate.
In a lot of cases there has been a traumatic event at around the onset of depression,, working with this trauma helps relieve the anxiety and depression.
How does it work?
When a traumatic event occurs, it can get frozen in the memory systems of the brain with the original images and words remaining unprocessed.
These memories are constantly triggered causing a wrong message being sent out to the amygdala which in turn releases more adrenalin. You can read more on the amygdala in my other article on parts of the brain. https://trevorbeech.com/2018/05/18/parts-of-the-brain/
How many sessions are required?
EMDR is a short term therapy every client is different but the average number of session are 6 to 12.
What area do you work in?
I have offices in Dorchester, Bournemouth/Poole I also do home visits in Hampshire and Dorset.
