In today's news, Prince Harry has revealed that he found EMDR extremely helpful. As a British psychotherapist working in New Jersey, it was great to hear this ringing endorsement for a type of therapy I use with my clients on a daily basis. Each day I see the positive changes that EMDR brings, and often this is the first time someone has had any sort of improvement from psychotherapy.
Over recent years, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) has become the preferred choice of therapy. The World Health Organization recognizes EMDR as an 'A' level of treatment for trauma, and research has shown that it is effective for a wide range of adverse life experiences.
Do you find yourself stuck in certain emotions or beliefs about yourself? For example, do you feel on edge? Or do you have this hard-to-shake belief that you are unsafe, or that you are somehow defective?
Stuck emotions and beliefs can creep into every aspect of your life, holding you back, and impacting others around you. For example, you might lack the confidence to speak up more at work, or you shy away from social gatherings at your child's playground. Without resolving these stuck emotions and beliefs, you run the risk of continuing the cycle, and passing on these negative beliefs and emotions to your children.
