EMDR

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a technique that is based on two assumptions:

 

1. The brain stores experiences in the form of networks. These memories can usually be expediently activated by external stimuli, sometimes also less expediently. This has a major driving influence on our behavior.

 

2. It is possible to link distressing memory networks with positively reinforcing ones so that specific external stimuli no longer inevitably lead to disturbing experiences.

 

The approach here involves to first help the client to uncover positive, reinforcing, helpful, and, above all, goal-oriented processes and then work them out and anchor them.

 

Therefore, EMDR is an extremely useful method that can be implemented in many area of coaching, for example, for preparing for exams, peak-performance situations, etc.

 

EMDR is also a very suitable method for fostering behavioral modifications, should all relevant issues that were once correctly but not currently linked to appropriate behaviors be well integrated in everyday life. This will become more evident in our individual conversations and then integrated in the course of our work together.

 

The processing of distressful memories and linking them with positively reinforcing networks takes place via the “simple bilateral stimulation” technique. This simply means that both sides of the brain are stimulated in rhythmic, alternating pattern by

 

  • eye movements
  • music
  • or touch

 

Which particular rhythm and which kind of bilateral stimulation is best for you can be determined in my office in Bonn.

 

Whereas I can also integrate EMDR in relaxation courses on-site or in-house, this is not possible via telephone or online.
