Barbara A. Martino, Psychotherapist in Stratford-upon-Avon, offers state of the art therapy and comprehensive treatment, focusing on body energy as well as the neurobiology of the brain.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a complex method of psychotherapy that integrates many of the successful elements of a range of therapeutic approaches in combination with eye movements or other forms of rhythmical stimulation in ways that stimulate the brains information processing system. With EMDR it is unnecessary to delve into decades old psychological material but rather, by activating the information processing system of the brain, people can achieve their therapeutic goals at a rapid rate, with recognisable changes that are permanent. EMDR was founded and developed by Dr Francine Shapiro.
This comprehensive therapy includes: a full Psycho-social/Medical History & Assessment, Mindfulness training, Relaxation/Breathing therapy, Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), Sensory-Motor therapy and EMDR. This therapy is considered both a psychological and physiological treatment, recognizing that the body as well as the brain stores the memory of the trauma, and both require healing and recovery time. This innovative clinical treatment has successfully helped well over two million individuals who have survived trauma, including (sexual) abuse, domestic violence, combat, crime and a variety of self-esteem issues.
Some of the conditions it has successfully treated are:
- All Psychological States:- Trauma (PTSD), Anxiety states (phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Attacks, Depression and Acute Stress.
- Medical/Physical Conditions:- Pain Management, Head Injury, IBS, Tinnitus, Chronic Fatigue, Phantom Limb to name a few.
