Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is one of 2 treatments recommended by the World Health Organisation for the treatment of trauma related problems such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Its discovery in 1989 by Dr Francine Shapiro transformed the treatment landscape for these types of problems. EMDR is now being used for a wider set of mental health conditions where memories have been stored with residual cognitive, emotional and somatic disturbance.
