We all have an inbuilt tendency to move towards a state of positive mental health and wellbeing. Just as our body self-heals when it becomes physically hurt (if we graze our hand for example, the body works to close and heal the wound naturally), in much the same way psychologically we recover and heal naturally too.
Many people recognise that they want to move forward, progress and improve their lives; however in some cases they feel that they are 'blocked' or held back in some way. Time alone doesn't necessarily always heal everything.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an effective treatment for individuals who have been suffering from psychological trauma. Past negative influences and early life experiences can have a marked effect upon the way we live our lives. EMDR in Essex can rapidly change the impact that these memories have; by reprocessing the disturbing information, transforming the way we view the past and resolving long held negative beliefs in a healthy, life enhancing manner.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
A severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event which results in psychological trauma. This shows up most commonly in the form of flashbacks, nightmares, sleep disturbance, anger, hyper-vigilance and intrusive thoughts.
This may not necessarily have a connection to a specific past event, but can have a debilitating effect on an individual due to the distressing physical feelings they experience which may include sweating, dizziness, breathlessness, heart palpitations. These symptoms along with the anxiety that is attached to them can result in avoidance of everyday situations, fear and loss of confidence.
Loss and excessive grief
The grief process is there for a reason, to help a person adjust and heal naturally. However, it is possible to get stuck in grief, preventing the individual from moving toward acceptance and recovery. As well as the loss of a loved one, people can experience grief as a result of divorce, losing their job, their children leaving home, or illness.
This includes performance in business (sales motivation, public speaking etc.) sports (confidence, developing a winning mentality) and performance at school (exams, concentration, focus.)
