Looking for EMDR therapy in Melbourne?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is founded by Dr Francine Shapiro in 1987 for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder and is guided by the adaptive information processing model.

As a leading provider of EMDR therapy in Melbourne, we at Light Mind Counselling use an adaptive information processing model to work on unprocessed memories from the past which continue to cause distress. These unprocessed memories are understood to contain the emotions, thoughts, beliefs and physical sensations that occurred at the time of the event. 

Studies have shown that EMDR therapy disrupts working memory and mimics the natural processing characteristics of REM sleep, thus facilitating the brain to successfully process the memory.

Utilising EMDR Therapy in Melbourne, our team provides our clients with the best function in a calm, rational way when things seem challenging in their lives. This involves approaching issues efficiently with a targeted approach specifically to the issues rather than taking a long process of analysis and talk therapy.

Heal with the best EMDR therapists in Melbourne at Light Mind Counselling

If you are frustrated with slow progress and frequent mental blocks, an EMDR therapist in Melbourne would be your next point of contact. EMDR therapy can quickly address issues that talk therapy can take years to heal.

Our EMDR therapists in Melbourne at Light Mind Counselling incorporated one of the powerful approaches in psychotherapy which has been recommended by the World Health Organisation that has been studied and researched for its effectiveness for over 30 years in a variety of cultures and different types of distress. If you have experienced a traumatic or upsetting experience somewhere in your life, it may exhaust your natural coping mechanisms. The memory and associated cognitions are inadequately processed and locked in your chemical system in a distressing form.

EMDR has shown to produce neurological changes in the brain which resolve these frozen memories and negative cognitions and relieve present symptoms. EMDR has a positive effect on how the brain processes information. The use of bilateral movements helps you to desensitise the effects of your strong negative memories. Following an EMDR session, you would no longer relive the experience. You will still remember that incident and be able to recall the memory but without any upsetting emotions.

What makes EMDR different?

EMDR Therapy has proven to produce results within a shorter period than many other therapeutic procedures using reduce distress. EMDR is also called the ‘accelerated emotional processing method’ because it addresses the underlying core issues of distress.

This provides a profound structures mechanism for your brain to process information and experiences. Studies have shown minimum chances for the distress to reoccur once it’s fully resolved and processed in the brain. EMDR therapy is delivered on one on one basis typically one to two times per week for a total of 6 to 12 sessions. However, this timeline could change based on the clients’ needs.

EMDR therapy does not require you to explain or describe specific details of your traumatic experiences. This reduces your emotional pain of revisiting the experience by explaining it to your therapist repeatedly in full detail until you reduce its impact.
