EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an effective treatment for trauma, a range of anxiety issues including phobias, and for dealing with attachment related difficulties.
Online EMDR is equally as effective as in person EMDR therapy. For online therapy I usually use tapping instead of eye movements.
Eye movements are used by the therapist (or other stimulations eg. tapping or sounds) to trigger Rapid Eye Movement (REM) which is how our brains naturally heal traumatic memories. This means that EMDR can work quickly and can be more effective in dealing with traumatic memories than traditional talking therapies.
EMDR is the recommended treatment for trauma in national and international guidelines including the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and specialise in Attachment Informed EMDR.
