How EMDR therapy can help heal trauma, with Dr Cheryl Cross
Roughly 80% of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime. And on this episode of The Liz Earle Wellbeing Show, Liz chats to chartered clinical psychologist Dr Cheryl Cross to learn why EMDR therapy can be transformational for severe trauma and how it works.
EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, is best known for helping to treat trauma and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Cheryl shares how this form of psychotherapy uses both the mind and the body to help people recover from traumatic events that have led to poor mental health.
The episode also covers how we define trauma and what can lead to it, who may benefit from EMDR, why it’s never too late to try this form of therapy, and the science behind it.
