Lucinda Gordon Lennox is an EMDR Psychotherapist specialising in trauma.
She did her basic EMDR training with Barbara Larch at the EMDR London and Munich Centre and trained with Robert Lefever in London, to gain a further understanding of EMDR and addiction recovery, with Laurel Parnell in Attachment-Focussed EMDR (AF-EMDR) and with Jim Knipe in EMDR for Complex PTSD and Dissociation.
She holds a Masters in Addiction Psychology (MSc) from London Southbank University and is a member of the Parnell Institute in California.
Most of what weighs us down isn’t ours to carry. Various life events cause us to build up barriers to experiencing our true selves, and this can claim our power as individuals. This is particularly so if we’ve experienced trauma (i.e. everyone).
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing or EMDR is a powerful form of psychotherapy developed by Francine Shapiro in the 1990s in which one is asked to recall distressing images; the therapist then directs you in one type of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping.
The process is aimed to replicate the natural phenomenon of eye movement that occurs during dream or REM sleep which allows us to process experiences and in this instance ‘stuck’ memories.
Lucinda Gordon Lennox is one of the top EMDR therapists in London. She helps people who present with either specific traumatic events that they wish to heal, or with troubling feelings that are hindering everyday life, or both, in order that they can shed what no longer serves them, discover their true selves, and fully sit in their power.
In this conversation we discuss what EMDR is, how it works, how it heals, and whether its right for you or anyone you know that’s dealing with unprocessed experiences.
