EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a unique therapy that helps process trauma. It can be really effective in relieving distress to help people get back to enjoying life. At Pocket Family, we love the therapy because we have witnessed so many success stories with it.
We’re therefore very excited to announce that Dr Andrea Shortland, the founder of Pocket Family Psychologist, is now an EMDR adult, adolescent and child Consultant. This means that she has not only completed specialist training but has extensive experience in the practice of EMDR with a wide variety of clients. She is also now qualified to supervise other EMDR therapists who are working towards their own accreditation. Essentially, Andrea knows her stuff when it comes to EMDR therapy and trauma processing!
Meanwhile, another of our Clinical Psychologists, Dr Sharon Brooks, has just finished her accreditation to become an EMDR Practitioner. This means she has demonstrated competence in the practice of EMDR, under the supervision of an EMDR Consultant, such as Andrea. Sharon is now listed on the EMDR Association’s website in which you can find an EMDR therapist easily here and ensure that if you work with someone, they too are accredited.
If you’re interested in EMDR, you can learn more about how it would work on our sister website, Shortland Psychology, or read our recent block post on how EMDR has been simplified to address ongoing distress, effective in only a handful of sessions.
