Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an advanced psychotherapy model that combines psychology with physiology in a way that allows a person to identify and “clear” past traumatic events.  Its effects are fast and permanent. It incorporates elements of cognitive behavioral therapy with bilateral eye movements or other forms of rhythmic, left-right stimulation.

People learn how to work around traumatic events. Rather than living with, and coping with, the effect trauma has on life satisfaction, EMDR can help. It can help if you have suffered severe trauma such as childhood neglect, childhood or adult physical or sexual abuse or suffer from attachment issues disorder. It is also used to treat single issue trauma such as being involved in a car accident, being the victim of a crime or perhaps bitten by a dog.

EMDR can be used to enhance performance in most areas of life. Therefore if you would like to improve performance in the work arena, in your sporting endeavours or to be more comfortable in social and interpersonal settings, EMDR can help you achieve this. You can allow yourself to expect more.

The effects of EMDR can be integrated into executive coaching in any industry or organisation. Employees, with impaired performance at work, receiving coaching in which EMDR is used can result in enhanced work performance. Furthermore it can reduce work related anxiety.

jLaw Psychology Practice offers EMDR at the one-to-one and group levels, confidential individuals, employers and organisations in safe and comfortable settings.
