EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)

At Midpoint Psychology, we understand that traumatic or disturbing life experiences can have a lasting impact on mental health and wellbeing. EMDR is a powerful therapeutic approach designed to help individuals heal from the emotional distress and symptoms associated with such life experiences.

What is EMDR?

EMDR is an evidence-based, structured therapy that uses guided eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to help the brain process and integrate distressing memories. This approach aims to reduce the emotional intensity of traumatic memories and transform negative beliefs associated with these experiences into more positive ones.

Symptoms Addressed by EMDR

EMDR is particularly effective for individuals experiencing trauma-related symptoms. It has further been found to be an effective treatment component in the management of anxiety, depression, complicated grief, stress and a range of other difficulties.

How EMDR Can Help

EMDR has a positive effect on how the brain processes information. Following completed EMDR treatment, the individual no longer relives the trauma. They still recall that an incident happened, but it no longer feels upsetting or disturbing.
