Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

EMDR is an empirically validated treatment for trauma.

"EMDR therapy is not just about healing trauma; it's about reclaiming power over your narrative, transforming wounds into wisdom, and finding strength in resilience." - Dr. Francine Shapiro

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy approach that helps individuals process distressing memories and traumatic experiences. It involves using bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or taps, to facilitate the brain's natural healing process and alleviate emotional distress associated with past traumas. EMDR aims to help individuals reprocess traumatic memories, reduce their emotional charge, and develop more adaptive coping mechanisms.

What to expect?

At RISE, we offer EMDR therapy, a comprehensive eight-step process designed to facilitate healing and resolution of past traumas and distressing experiences. In a nurturing and safe environment, our trained EMDR therapist guide individuals through each stage of EMDR therapy, helping them to identify and process negative beliefs, emotions, and sensations associated with their trauma. Through bilateral stimulation techniques, such as eye movements or tactile stimulation, EMDR facilitates the reprocessing of traumatic memories, enabling individuals to integrate them into their lives in a healthier way. Our collaborative approach ensures that each person receives personalised care and support throughout their journey toward healing and transformation. Whether you're struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, or other psychological challenges, EMDR therapy at our practice offers a structured path toward healing and empowerment.
