About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

EMDR and its applications

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach designed to help individuals process traumatic memories and alleviate associated symptoms. EMDR is facilitated by trained therapists who guide individuals through a structured protocol aimed at reprocessing distressing memories and beliefs. At It's Complicated, our team of therapists specialises in delivering EMDR therapy to clients struggling with trauma-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and phobias. 

 

How EMDR works

In EMDR therapy, clients identify target memories or beliefs related to past traumatic experiences. If the therapist and the client agree that EMDR therapy would be useful to try out and begin to work together, the client will be asked to focus on a specific event. Attention will be given to a distressing image, while the therapist will help generate one of several types of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements, sounds, or hand tapping. This is to help the client process these memories and integrate them into their existing cognitive framework. The client will be guided to notice what comes to mind after each set. They may experience changes in images, feelings, or beliefs regarding the event, and the sets of eye movements, sounds, or taps are repeated until the event becomes less disturbing. Through these repeated sets of bilateral stimulation, individuals experience a reduction in the emotional charge associated with traumatic memories, leading to symptom relief and increased resilience.

 

Is EMDR right for you?

EMDR offers a targeted and effective approach to addressing trauma-related symptoms and promoting emotional healing. Whether struggling with the aftermath of a specific traumatic event or experiencing symptoms of PTSD, EMDR provides a safe and structured framework for processing traumatic memories and restoring emotional well-being. If you're seeking relief from the debilitating effects of trauma and are ready to embark on a journey towards healing, EMDR therapy may offer valuable insights and transformative possibilities. Connect with a skilled therapist from the It's Complicated community to explore whether EMDR is the right fit for you.
