Are you suffering from symptoms of trauma?
Have you experienced or witnessed a traumatic event which has left you feeling on edge, constantly preoccupied with what happened or experiencing nightmares or flashbacks?
Maybe you don’t remember a specific traumatic event, but you know that in certain situations you experience an extraordinarily strong reaction…or maybe you notice that you avoid situations or relationships because of past pain that you just don’t want to re-experience.
If this resonates with you, you’ll be relieved to hear that there is a very effective therapy – Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) – that can resolve or dramatically improve your symptoms, leading to a much greater degree of freedom in your life.
What clients say about EMDR...
Thank you for your help and support over the last few weeks. It has been the most difficult time. It constantly felt that I was just frozen in the past, and like I was trapped. I found it really hard to stay in the here and now. When I went to sleep the night of our last session, I was going through different memories at a very fast pace, but it seemed different, because I didn’t feel the level of panic or fear I had felt before, which would have woken me in tears. And the last couple of nights, I have not had any nightmares. And even during the day, I no longer feel the level of panic, I feel like I finally have a sense of control. I know I still have a long way to go, but I just wanted to say thank you…
Julia introduced me to EMDR as a way of helping me with Anxiety and Stress along with conventional counselling and has worked to great effect; the results have been instant and have never ceased to amaze me. Julia has perfected a very calm, relaxing and professional approach to EMDR which has helped me overcome various issues of Anxiety. If you have not tried EMDR before I would recommend it, the results have truly made a great difference to my life.
I am so glad I embarked on the journey with Julia to finally put my life experiences into context.
EMDR has truly revolutionised the way I see myself, and enabled me to make sense of my actions, past and present, which will inevitably inform a more positive future. I have tried various interventions, and none have ever equipped me with a set of values which I feel are genuine and appropriate to me. EMDR has helped me come to terms with traumatic bereavement experiences, and move forward from the past. I feel safe and comfortable leaving those experiences behind and accept them as a just part of my journey.
Julia was welcoming and encouraged trust from the start. The treatment was taken slowly and always at my pace which I found enabled me to move forward in a way I had been unable to do do before; I feel I have support if and when I need it to progress and to face any further problems. EMDR is a real eye opener without vulnerabilty and I am aware that I am looking at things differently since the treatment; friends are commenting that I seem calmer and happier and I genuinely feel more so. I didn’t realise just how confused and challenged I was until I started to feel less so and EMDR is the cause of this. Having the treatment is quite literally the best decision I could have made and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or have more if and when necessary.
EMDR directly tackled the causal issues identified and we were able to get to the root causes of distress quickly and efficiently. I’m not sure how exactly this approach works, but I do know that the shifts that have occurred as a result have made a major difference.
