EMDR Level 3 Completed (for complex trauma)

Posted on by Christine

I have now completed level 1, 2 and 3 of the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) training. This technique is used with people who have suffered some form of trauma. It may be that the trauma happened to them directly or that they witnessed an event that was traumatic for them. If this happens it sometimes happens that the brain is not able to process the memory and so it gets stuck and the person can keep having intrusive thoughts, memories or dreams about the event. EMDR helps the person to process this memory. This is always done in a safe and considered environment so that the person can be take care of themselves psychologically as the process moves forward. I have used this intervention with several clients and they have been able to move away from the trauma.
