Therapy, Training and Supervision
The Foundry, Marcus Street, Birkenhead, Merseyside,
CBT is based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are interconnected, as an example you may notice that your negative thoughts can impact upon you physically, both causing you to behave in a different way such as avoiding things and you may begin to feel more negative emotions, the responses then all work together and you can feel trapped into a vicious cycle.
CBT aims to help you deal with these overwhelming problems in a more positive way by understanding your cycle and working on each group of symptoms in turn to prevent them working together to create that cycle.
You are shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel and are taught strategies and techniques to deal with your symptoms as they arise.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. It is a therapy used to help people recover from distressing events and the problems they have caused, like flashbacks, upsetting thoughts or images, depression or anxiety.
EMDR practitioners use eye movements to help your brain to process correctly the memory you have associated with your distressing experience. This therapy can be helpful to overcome distress and allow your self to feel more able to manage anxiety provoking events in the present and future.
Mersey Psychotherapies is a Wirral based Psychotherapy Service with a team of four experienced therapists offering either Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and/or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) interventions for adults and children, depending upon the needs of the client.
