Trauma and  PTSD


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops when someone has experienced a traumatic event. When a painful or upsetting experience happens, the memory of the experience sometimes stays “stuck” in the body and mind causing upsetting emotions such as overwhelming anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, repetitive and distressing images or sensations. Sometimes they can also experience physical sensations, such as pain, sweating, feeling sick or trembling


EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed and stored in a different way in the brain, so following a successful EMDR session, you no longer relive the images, sounds, and feelings associated to the traumatic event.  You still remember the event, but it is less upsetting, giving you a sense of relief and hope.
