Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy, or EMDR, is a powerful psychological treatment method that was developed by clinical psychologist Dr Francine Shapiro. It has been shown to successfully treat psychological trauma arising from experiences as diverse as war trauma, childhood abuse or neglect, natural disaster, assault, road traffic accidents and workplace accidents, as well as conditions including anxiety disorders, depression and chronic pain. EMDR is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence), among others, as a highly effective psychological treatment for reducing the intensity of distressing memories both in children and adults.

EMDR mimics what the brain does naturally during dreaming or REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, directly influencing the way that the brain functions, overriding trauma responses and helping to restore normal ways of dealing with problems. Following successful EMDR treatment, memories of traumatic events are no longer painful when brought to mind. EMDR is an inherently natural therapy which assists the brain in working through distressing material by utilising a natural process.
