7th March – EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing ) Mind Connections Therapy Practice in Kent10am till 3.30pm

This training is helpful for PTSD, anxiety, distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, traumatic events and flashbacks. The process of EMDR can change the way these traumatic emotions and images are stored within us and so enabling you or your client to deal with them differently. At the time the event happened often we are too overwhelmed to process the information. EMDR helps to process these and so reduce the symptoms and impact. .

If something traumatic has happened to you (whether it be a car accident, abuse or something seemingly less significant like being humiliated), the memory of your experience may come crashing back into your mind, forcing you to relive the original event with the same intensity of feeling – like it is taking place in the present moment.

These experiences that pop into your awareness may present themselves as either flashbacks or nightmares, and are thought to occur because the mind was simply too overwhelmed during the event to process what was going on.

As a result, these unprocessed memories and the accompanying sights, sounds, thoughts and feelings are stored in the brain in ‘raw’ form, where they can be accessed each time we experience something that triggers a recollection of the original event.

While it isn’t possible to erase these memories, the process of Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) can alter the way these traumatic memories are stored within the brain – making them easier to manage and causing you less distress.

This training is most suited to hypnotherapists, counsellors, established therapists.  It will count as a CPD.
