EMDR Therapy in Norwich

EMDR Therapy in Norwich

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Densensitisation and Reprocessing and is best known as a treatment for Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is recognised by the National Institute of Health & Care Excellence (NICE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a treatment for PTSD. It can also be helpful for a wide range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, depression, addictions, and relationship issues. Often these difficulties have their root in some kind of trauma, whether that is being bullied, criticised or abused in some way, either in childhood or adulthood, even when it is not obvious this is the case.

EMDR therapy follows a specific structure which your therapist will take through, starting with an assessment of your current difficulties, past experiences, and your readiness and suitability for EMDR therapy. In the reprocessing stages of EMDR, bilateral stimulation (BLS) is combined with the activation of traumatic memories. Bilateral stimulation involves alternately stimulating each side of your brain, either with eye movements, sounds or tapping, to allow you to access distressing memories. This process allows your brain to process these experiences which creates a transformational shift in your psychological health. The BLS also allows for a dual attention, helping you stay anchored in the present (and therefore maintaining a feeling of safety) whilst also connecting to distressing memories.

Dr. Tanya Augustine has completed EMDR training and Attachment Informed EMDR. She uses EMDR has a stand-alone therapy or alongside other approaches including Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

Dr. Tanya Augustine - HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist and BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist

Tanya qualified as a counselling psychologist in 2009 and is qualified to offer a range of therapies which can be tailored to your individual needs and circumstances. Therapy may involve working on a clearly defined problem area and may be time limited. Alternatively, it may be more appropriate to work in an open-ended contract in which you can explore your issues further.

​The main therapeutic approaches Tanya draws on are Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness, EFT and EMDR. These approaches bring together a broad range of theories and have a strong evidence base in helping people manage their emotional health, and address difficulties associated with trauma, chronic stress and adverse life experiences. 

Research has shown that the therapeutic relationship is crucial in determining how helpful therapy can be. Central to her approach is a focus on the therapeutic relationship, which is collaborative and involves working together on an agreed focus for therapy. It is important that you feel that you can trust the therapist you decide to work with.

Since completing her core training in Counselling Psychology, Tanya has completed further training in Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement desensitisation and reprocessing) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). The latter two therapies are particularly helpful in addressing problems associated with trauma and chronic stress. 

​When Tanya is not working or caring for her daughters, she enjoys wild swimming, running and meditation to keep her as happy and as healthy as she can be. Tanya enjoys bringing into her professional work the therapies that she has found to be helpful in supporting her own emotional health and healing from trauma.

Tanya offers a reduction in fee for health & social care workers.  Health insurance from Bupa & Aviva is accepted.
