What Is EMDR?
EMDR is a form of psychotherapy which can be extremely effective in healing a range of symptoms of emotional distress from trauma caused by disturbing life experiences. EMDR stands for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. Kathryn Grooms is a Certified EMDR practitioner and an Attachment Focussed EMDR (AF-EMDR) Consultant in Training with the Parnell Institute. Our therapists are specifically trained to address attachment traumas.
EMDR therapy incorporates eye movements or other bilateral stimulation into a comprehensive approach that processes and releases information trapped in the mind and body, freeing people from disturbing images and body sensations, debilitating emotions, and restrictive beliefs. This revolutionary therapy has helped millions of clients of all ages recover from such traumas as war, accidents, assaults, disasters, and childhood abuse. EMDR has been extensively researched as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and is considered to be an evidence-based therapy.
