EMDR is a therapy that can help you process and come to terms with traumatic incidents. Trauma can be caused by a single event – such as a road traffic accident or an assault - or by more complex problems, such as those that arise from childhood abuse or repeated events, like bullying.
EMDR therapy works on three elements; the past, the present and the future: Firstly, the bad memories that have led to the present day problems are resolved. The next phase is to work through and address present day difficulties. EMDR concludes by enabling the client to establish a preferred response to future challenges.
EMDR works in a cognitive, physiological and emotional way. This means that memories from early infancy can be addressed and resolved. Russell Wharton has undergone specialist training with Dr. Sandra Paulsen in working with implicit, early childhood trauma.
