EMDR treatment is NICE and WHO endorsed for the treatment of psychological trauma and PTSD. Evidence suggests it is not only effective but highly efficient and cost effective at not only reducing symptomatology but often completely alleviating the symptoms of trauma: hyperarousal, intrusive memories and avoidance behaviours.
Dr Phil Moore has been leading the advancement of EMDR therapy for patients following brain injury, focussing upon psychologically traumatic events during the aftermath of their serious injury and upon psychologically traumatic partial memories during concussion injuries.
It involves target memory assessment, coping skills teaching, controlled exposure and bilateral eye stimulation to help a client re-process traumatic target memories until distress is minimised.
Dr Moore provides EMDR treatment in addition to his existing broad Clinical Psychology training for clients with insurance funded treatments following traumatic experiences. This treatment is limited to the South West of England due to logistical demands.
