Child EMDR Therapy

Children and young people can experience significant emotional upheavel and distress during their childhood and teenager years. Worries and disturbing memories can occur from single incident traumatic experiences as well as from ongoing multiple and accumulative traumas. These can impact on development and take away from children the experience of being safe in the world and that ‘all is well’.

Difficulties Child EMDR can help you with

EMDR can help with a range of difficulties, including:

  • Anxiety and Worries
  • Separation Difficulties
  • Attachment Difficulties
  • Complex Trauma
    • Examples such as witnessing or being involved in difficult life events, such as emergency medical procedures, or witnessing a violent home life.
  • Family fragmentation

EMDR is able to help children at both home and school. For example, it can helps them to feel better and also reduce behaviours such as problems sleeping, eating, anxieties about school and school work, exams, low self-esteem, fears that they may have, and coping with family breakdown and bullying. Children who have experienced early loss, even in their early hours and days of life, can be helped by EMDR.
