EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychological treatment that has been used effectively for over 30 years in a variety of international settings and cultures with many different types of psychological distress. Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with the aim to reduce distressing emotions associated with traumatic memories. Clinicians have also successfully used EMDR as a treatment component in the management of many other conditions including depression, anxiety, panic, and phobias.

 

For more information about EMDR, please follow the link.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with one of our clinicians trained in this treatment, or ​require further information, please contact the clinic on 3376 1977 or via email.
