People often think EMDR therapy is only effective for treating big T trauma such as car accidents, assault or military trauma. However, this could not be further from the truth; EMDR is now used for various distressful conditions, including issues from childhood DEVELOPMENTAL trauma which I use EMDR as a part of the treatment.
There have been significant new developments in EMDR therapy since its inception. There are now many ways to modify standard EMDR procedures to support people in overcoming many mental health issues and life challenges, such as anxiety, depression, addictions, complex grief and attachment-based trauma.
