With EMDR we can work with all forms of pre-verbal trauma from the womb through to when conscious memory begins to form. Such memories are implicit and held in the body. Katie O’Shea first wrote about this in EMDR Solutions II, demonstrating that such pre-verbal memories respond well to EMDR.

Annabel draws on the best of the Attachment informed approach to EMDR pioneered by Laurel Parnell and Mark Brayne. She combines this with Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy to create her own unique protocol. She will demonstrate this during the webinar.

For many clients their birth was traumatic or they weren’t wanted or even given away. Perhaps they’d like to imagine being born to their ideal parents with whom they can attach in a loving safe way.

What happens if we take such a client back even further to where they were before they were born? For some clients, this can help access the Self, as identified by IFS. This can be quite a transpersonal and transformative experience for some people.
