Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

If you are interested in finding out more about EMDR therapy, you may find some of the links below helpful.  EMDR therapy has a strong evidence base for helping heal trauma and is one of the two evidence based treatments for
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the other being Trauma Focused Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (TFCBT).
EMDR and TFCBT are recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the first line treatments for PTSD for adults, prior to medication. 

Both treatments are offered at Transcendent Psychology.  This same recommendation is also provided in the Australian Guidelines for treatment. 

The Guidelines for the Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are endorsed by the Australian Psychological Society, The Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Psychiatrists and The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.  Click on this link to view the guidelines:
