Ground Breaking Therapy Technique to Address Anxiety and Stress Finds Success on Harley Street

A leading Harley Street therapy clinic is championing a ground breaking new technique to help its patients overcome a range of common mental health conditions, ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder to social anxiety. The Private Therapy Clinic, which has been successfully operating for 7 years, is deploying the effective, hands on technique of eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) to improve the wellbeing of its patients.

Developed in the 80’s EMDR is still a relatively new tool for therapists but one that the Private Therapy Clinic is a strong advocate of after the firm’s professional practitioners have used it to treat a range of disorders. Through replicating the rapid eye movements that people experiences during REM sleep, EMDR allows therapists to tap into neurological pathways that formed around a point of distress. Through helping patients to understand better ways to react to the unresolved trauma, the treatment can promote improved psychological health. The Private Therapy Clinic has found particular success using the revolutionary technique to address disorders related to anxiety.

Dr Becky Spelman, Director of The Private Therapy Clinic, said, “EMDR is an incredibly powerful tool for therapists, allowing a change to be created in someone’s emotions in a short space of time. The unique process skilled therapists go through to deliver EMDR delivers real benefits to the patient, allowing them to address the unresolved trauma that is still affecting their lives. At the moment, it’s a vastly unused and underestimated clinically proven technique that could transform the lives of many people suffering from mental health disorders and struggles. At the Private Therapy Clinic, it’s a treatment that we’re backing and it’s paying off for our patients.”

With a focus on delivering exemplary, tailored treatment to clients, the Private Therapy Clinic is always at the forefront of the therapy profession. As well as EMDR, other exciting new treatments on offer include mindfulness training, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavioural therapy. The extensive range of services on offer at the prestigious brand, allows patients to access a treatment plan that’s perfectly tailored to their needs and goals.

Recognising that some people have difficulty understanding which form of treatment is best suited to them, the Private Therapy Clinic offers a complementary consultation, giving them access to a leading professional.
