EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprogramming  is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing, unresolved life experiences. It uses a structured approach to address past, present, and future aspects of disturbing memories. It is recommended by N.I.C.E (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) - NHS. as the treatment of choice for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is extensively used in such cases as sexual abuse, childhood neglect, road traffic accidents and violence. EMDR is also successful in treating other complaints such as performance anxiety, self-esteem issues, phobias, and other trauma related anxiety disorders.

                                                

EMDR therapy accesses left and right hand brain functions through a controlled eye movement technique led by the therapist. This can re-program the original unresolved and traumatic experiences into acceptable responses and memories.

EMDR was first developed by American psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro in 1987. While walking, Shapiro became anxious by distressing memories and noticed that scanning her surroundings; looking left and right, decreased the negative emotions she was experiencing. Shapiro discovered that eye movement alone didn't provide a comprehensive treatment for traumatic memories and events so developed further treatment elements which eventually became known as EMDR.
