Bilateral Stimulation Processing (from EMDR)
“Fear is not a ‘mental’ problem, it’s a physiological response and you can change it.” ~ Francine Shapiro
Based on the work of Francine Shapiro in the late 1980’s, this is a therapeutic modality which is rapidly gaining wider recognition among the ‘mainstream’ psychotherapeutic circles. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a technique which opens up accelerated information processing for healing trauma, character structure patterns, disruptive beliefs and behaviour. Bi-lateral Stimulation Processing (developed from the understandings and processes of EMDR) is client centred and naturalistic, yet rigorous and structured, allowing the person’s natural drive towards integration and growth to emerge organically.
Current research supporting the effectiveness of EMDR can be found here.
