I have additionally trained in Eye Movement Integration +. This offers a unique way of working with emotional distress and trauma, enabling you to address trauma, anxiety, grief, without having to re-experience traumatic and distressing memories. There are many similarities between EMDR and EMI+ which enable an integrated approach to help you best address your needs.
There is a large amount of evidence and research which shows that both Hypnotherapy and EMDR help with a wide range of problems. Stress, Trauma, Pain Management, Phantom limb pain, Anxiety, and Phobias are all areas where Hypnotherapy, EMDR, EMI+ have been used with success.
