Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, most commonly referred to as ‘EMDR’ is a highly useful and adaptable tool for any professional hypnotherapist. A form of ‘bilateral stimulation’ it can be used to access, process and resolve distressing or disturbing past (or future) experiences, negative beliefs and unwanted body sensations, it is also effective for anxiety (past, present, future events), phobias, and performance concerns (professional, personal, sporting) and can be used to develop and enhance supportive positive responses and beliefs. Most commonly, clients follow hand or light movements with their eyes, although other methods of bilateral stimulation, such as taps and clicks, are also taught and the use of electronic and technology solutions is discussed.
This training will address the theory of trauma, PTSD perspectives and processing disturbance, together with how to assess the client, prepare them for EMDR, use bilateral stimulation to process, addressing blocks and loops, and how to close interim and final sessions. Application protocols for past and recent trauma, phobias, anxieties, and anger, sport and weight management will be explored, as will adaptations for ego strengthening, positive enhancement and future pacing.
