What is an EMDR Consultant?
An EMDR Consultant is an approved EMDR Practitioner with additional training and experience who is able to undertake the tasks of consultation or supervision of EMDR practitioners. ... Applicants need to have a minimum of three years experience as an EMDR Europe Practitioner.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy ( EMDR ) is a form of psychotherapy developed by Francine Shapiro for trauma -related disorders. According to Shapiro's theory when a traumatic or distressing experience occurs, it may overwhelm usual cognitive and neurological coping mechanisms. This can result in the memory and associated stimuli of the event being inadequately processed, resulting in the memory being stored in a dysfunctional form in an isolated memory network. The goal of EMDR therapy is to process these distressing memories, reducing their ongoing influence and allowing clients to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms. Shapiro has published research data to support the benefits of the therapy and a wealth of research has been conducted which have demonstrated treatment benefit for psychological trauma. This includes child hood abuse or neglect, performance anxiety, assault, disasters, surgical trauma, birth trauma, road traffic accidents, life event depression, Occupational distressing events. http://www.emdr-europe.org
It is a way of talking about:
- how you think about yourself, the world and other people
- how what you do affects your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
When does CBT help?
How does it work?
- A Situation - a problem, event or difficult situation
From this can follow:
- Physical feelings
Each of these areas can affect the others. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it. There are helpful and unhelpful ways of reacting to most situations, depending on how you think about them. (Royal College of Psychiatrists 2012)
