What is EDMR?


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and other causes of distress.


Credentials


**Farah has over 62 hours of specialized EMDR training followed by 20 hours of supervision and also opts for ongoing monthly consultations to ensure she is appraised of new research and best practices - Farah's passion for excellence in service motivates her to continue well beyond standard requirements.
 
EMDR is frequently used to treat mild to severe trauma including PTSD - however it is also proven to be effective for depression, anxiety, attachment, grief, high performance situations such as in social situations, athletics, child birthing, job interviews, presentations & other workplace circumstances.
 
Side effects: some clients report feeling somewhat tired after an EMDR session – some have dreams and it is important not to intentionally try to continue to reprocess outside of sessions; rather to keep a simple note of what you may have noticed i.e. what the dream was.
 
I provide EMDR in different ways including a light bar, sound, or buzzers – your modality is uniquely chosen for you based on how you are observed to be processing.

There are 8 Phases of Treatment (see below)
