EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

Many people ask “What is EMDR? Does it really work?” –  If you are one of those you will be surprised.

EMDR  is a therapeutic method used to desensitize and reprocess psychological trauma. This technique was created in 1987 by Dr. Francine Shapiro.

The EMDR among other things is based on bilateral brain stimulation using eye, sound or tactile stimuli.

The technique has been practiced for decades and is one of the treatments that has the largest scientific evidence. It  is widely recommended for the treatment of Post Traumatic Disorders and validated by the Health Department  in Northern Ireland, the Department of Defence in  United States and the organization NICE  in the UK.

The unlocking of emotions and reprocessing  occurs while the client focus on a memory or belief.  As he follow the instructions of the therapist, inter-related memories, images and experiences come out to the surface.  Sometimes there is even be an internal dialogue and more positive perceptions arise.  The process mitigates the negative emotional response until a neutralization is achieved,  this leads to a neutral or positive perception in respect of the original trauma or negative memory.

What is EMDR equipment?

The therapist can use  his hands, light bars, sound equipment or software to process the trauma. The  technique causes changes in the emotional responses, and sometimes you will  discover programs and subconscious beliefs that have been running in your mind and limiting you ability to progress or function at the level you desire.  It is important to work with a professional to guide you and help you to overcome any difficult or emotional moment.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual and on  the problem to be solved.

Success Stories
Hypnosis South London
Relationships and removing limiting beliefs about money

I cannot put into words what a difference this has made to my life. I was feeling extremely anxious and the therapy that Maria has given me has helped tremendously. I found the sessions enjoyable and interesting and could see results after just the first session mainly focused on anxiety around my daughter and my ex-partner and anger towards certain people. I found all her BAGC6 tools extremely helpful and it made such a difference to my sense of wellbeing undertaking these tasks every day. I was excited to do them! After a couple of days of doing them, I felt so much calmer and happier and was feeling optimistic again and back to myself. In the first session, we did some work around how I could deal with my toddler in a more patient manner and the following day the technique Maria had showed me worked perfectly. I was really shocked at how quickly it worked. Once I dealt with this initial difficulty, I then started to work with finances and making money. Maria helped me to remove limiting beliefs about money, and again the tools that Maria gave me and the work at home around my financial situation and letting go of old patterns has really help. Also, what I love about the therapy is that the tools and recordings that Maria gave me are still there for me to use when I have a difficult time again. I have already recommended a friend to see Maria. I cannot thank you enough Maria for what you have helped me with.
