More about EMDR therapy in Southampton

During an EMDR session at our wellbeing centre, your therapist will move their fingers in front of your face and instruct you to follow these hand movements with your eyes. While your eyes are moving back and forth, you'll be asked to recall a disturbing memory, including the negative emotions that it causes, before the therapist gradually encourages you to shift your negative thoughts to more positive ones.

EMDR has been found to reduce the intensity of distressing memories and as such, is often used to treat PTSD. EMDR has also been found to be effective in treating:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Addictions
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety attacks
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Phobias
  • Sleep disorders
  • Complicated grief
  • Pain relief, in relation to phantom limb pain
  • Self-esteem issues

Southampton’s therapists, such as Angela Marston, have successfully used EMDR to treat many patients, ranging from people who have experienced single traumas, to people who are struggling with more ingrained anxiety and OCD. The validity and reliability of EMDR as a treatment method has been established by rigorous research, and it's recommended as an effective treatment method by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

EMDR can be used as a brief, focused treatment intervention, or may form part of a longer psychotherapy programme. Depending on the severity of the mental health condition that's being treated, anything from 6 to 18 EMDR sessions could be needed.

Watch our video, in which Priory's Natalie Smith explains how EMDR can be used to treat almost any old memory that's bothering you.
