Are you suffering from trauma symptoms?
Research indicates that unresolved trauma may be at the root of a wide range of problems. When trauma goes untreated, it can impact all aspects of your life, manifesting as a variety of physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual and behavioural symptoms that relate (sometimes obviously, sometimes less obviously) to past traumas that you’ve experienced. Perhaps you’ve suffered a traumatic or distressing life event which has left you constantly thinking about what happened, feeling on edge, or having nightmares about the event. You may find yourself re-experiencing the feelings and body sensations of the event as if it is happening now.
Maybe you don’t remember a specific traumatic event, but you know that in response to certain triggers, you experience a stronger reaction than other people around you seem to have…Or maybe you avoid situations or relationships because of past pain that you don’t want to re-experience.
If you experience any of these symptoms and they are getting in the way of you living life to the full, you may benefit from Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is extremely effective in healing past pain and dramatically reducing or even completely resolving trauma symptoms, often in a much-reduced time frame compared with conventional talking therapies.
