CPD Event title: EMDR for Hypnotherapists
Brief Description Of Event: This workshop is designed for hypnotherapists and talking therapists to use EMDR approaches within their therapy practice. EMDR works very well within a hypnotherapy practice.
Originally designed to help address traumatic memories, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) facilitates the accessing, processing and resolving of disturbing memories and unpleasant life experiences, whilst addressing negative beliefs and unwanted body sensations about past and future events and promoting supportive positive beliefs. EMDR is a highly useful tool for any professional hypnotherapist. It is most commonly associated with working with trauma, yet is also very helpful in addressing a range of disturbances, anxiety (past, present, future events), phobias and performance concerns.
Learning Objectives: Participants will gain practical and theoretical understanding of how to use EMDR techniques and principles within their hypnotherapy practice.
Course Structure: This highly practical workshop discusses the theory of trauma, PTSD perspectives and the processing of disturbance. It then explores a range of EMDR techniques and approaches including,
• Assessing contra-indications
• Preparation and information gathering
• Metaphors for EMDR
• Working with SUD and VOC scales
• Using bilateral stimulation and eye movements (finger sweep, clicks and taps)
• Bilateral stimulation using technology
• Processing images, beliefs, emotions and sensations
• Working through blocks and loops
• Closing interim and final sessions
You will also explore protocols for past and recent trauma, phobias, anxiety and anger, together with how to adapt protocols for ego strengthening, positive enhancement and future pacing.
