Psychologists at Brisbane Counselling Centre have been helping people throughout Queensland for over 30 years using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). For the past 18 years, however, attending psychologists have been using a particular type of EMDR that has proven to be the most effective form for producing consistently better outcomes for clients.

EMDR is recognised internationally as an effective form of treatment for trauma-related ailments, and has helped many people the world over to take control of their mental healing process.

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR is a therapeutic modality widely used at this Centre. It is one of the treatment options most attending psychologists provide, and in the initial session your psychologist will assess if EMDR is suitable for your presenting issues. If so, the psychologist will talk to you in more detail about the therapy.

How does EMDR therapy work?

Human beings “store” traumas in a particular way that makes it difficult for them to function at their optimal level. EMDR helps to work through these traumas and neutralise the emotional response that these situations and memories elicit. Just as you would heal from a physical injury, EMDR helps you to activate your own ability to ‘heal’ from your mental trauma.

EMDR makes use of eye movement treatment, which helps in bringing internal associations with the traumatic event to the front of the mind. From there, those associations can be changed and the healing process can begin.

What is EMDR therapy used for?

EMDR is considered to be one of the leading strategies for treating trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Complex PTSD.
