EMDR South Central

Who Are We ?

Forthcoming Events

Our next event – EMDR and OCD with Robin Logie – is planned for 7th September 2024 at The Spire in Poole. For further details, please see current events.

What is EMDR ?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychological therapy. It is recommended as a treatment of choice for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). There is also a growing body of evidence for its effectiveness in overcoming other difficulties such as anxiety disorders which have their origins in trauma or adverse life events.

What do we do ?

The aim of EMDR South Central is to support therapists to provide EMDR therapy which is effective, efficient and ethical and to make this as widely available as possible to adults, children and young people living in Dorset, IoW, Hampshire and Somerset.
