Hi,

If anyone is suffering from PTSD there is a new therapy called EMDR. It stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.

It basically puts the traumatic memories back to where they belong.

If anyone is seeing a psychologist it maybe worth a mention to them.

For some reason I am unable to post on the PTSD forum?

Good luck

David

For some reason I can't get to all the forums on my tablet, but I can on my laptop.

Yes, I have heard of EMDR, I even know someone who will soon be doing it. Most of what I’ve heard has been very positive, it seems to work well in many cases. Just goes to show that the body is connected to the mind’s functioning in mysterious ways.

I don’t know that it has much relevance to hearing voices though.

And I have no problems getting to all the forums on my tablet :) have you tried clearing your browser’s cookies?

Hi Kerome,

It wouldn't let me post on the PTSD forum, so my apologies for that.

I was using my mobile though at the time.

Thanks for replying.

EMDR is one of only 2 recommended treatments for PTSD in the NICE guidelines (the other being trauma focused cbt) unfortunately I think there are a limited number of people trained to do it currently.

I had a similar treatment IEMT (integrated eye movement therapy for PTSD and it was amazingly helpful, I would highly recommend it.
