What is Counselling?
Counselling is a form of psychological or talking therapy that offers people chance to change how they feel, maybe view things differently and ultimately gain a sense of overall wellbeing.
What is Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing [EMDR]?
The mind usually heals itself naturally in the same way the body does. Much of our natural coping mechanisms occur during sleep, Rapid Eye Movement [REM] Sleep.
Often disturbing events happen that stay with us in our memories and we feel distressed when we think about them. The brain cannot process traumatic or stressful experiences as it ordinarily does. The memory becomes ‘frozen in time’ and remembering the distressing event may feel as bad as going through it for the first time because the images and feelings haven’t changed. Such memories have a lasting negative effect that interferes with the way we see the world and how we relate to other people.
