Choose Optimism

Helen Dugdale 0 7

Did you know that optimism can be learned AND it is good for your health? Not just for your mental health but also for your physical health. See challenges as opportunities to learn or to do something different, rather than accept disasters. Winston Churchill said "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty”. For example: You've dropped out of Uni, and an opening comes up for a hobby that you are good at. Now you have time to pursue that field.

Brain Coaching, EMDR and Prince Harry article – Not that Bizarre! There is science involved.

Helen Dugdale 0 9

Recently, there was an article written by Samantha Selinger-Morris, about how Prince Harry uses a method called EMDR to help him resolve his past issues about his mother’s death. (EMDR is Eye Movement Desensitising and Resetting). The author makes some excellent points and quotes from both clients and University professors about how successful EMDR is helping people resolve emotional issues, especially about traumatic events.

What is EMDR? The ‘bizarre’ therapy helping Prince Harry heal

When Prince Harry spoke earlier this week about how he has undergone a controversial type of psychotherapy to heal from longstanding trauma and anxiety, the world took notice.

What exactly, we all wondered, is Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)? What happened when he closed his eyes, crossed his arms, and tapped his own shoulders while thinking of traumatic memories – as we saw in a scene from one of his therapy sessions in the documentary series, The Me You Can’t See? The Duke of Sussex said he has turned to therapy to resolve fears and anxiety he’s suffered since his mother’s death in a car accident in 1997 when he was 12. (“London is a trigger, unfortunately,” he says, in one episode. “Because of what happened to my mum, and because of what I experienced and what I saw.“)

But what does EMDR, which was once called “yet another of the crazes that have always plagued psychiatry” (by trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk) – and which has in the last couple of years been labelled everything from “strange” to “funny” and “sounding like witchcraft” – accomplish? And why is it growing in popularity?
