As you will remember from last week’s article about EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) we made up an example case about a man who was terrified of doing a job interview.  We used the EMDR technique, the “Flash Technique” and reduced his anxiety levels from a 9 out of 10 to a 6 out of [...]

No one asks to be injured. One of the most difficult psychological factors is adjusting to what an injury means, in terms of limitations caused by the injury and what being injured stops you from doing. People often describe feeling frustrated and becoming a bit “stir crazy” when they’re unable to do the activities they [...]

It’s so much easier to see how easy it would be for someone we know to change. If they just listened to your advice, very good advice I’m sure, they would get things sorted.

Isn’t it interesting how quickly time passes when you’re having fun! (For example this Easter break went so quickly! ) It made me think about time and how we make decisions about what we do with our time. We can see that each decision we make or don’t make leads to a ripple effect finishing [...]
