EMDR with Preverbal Trauma

  • A three-hour webinar with Dr Annabel McGoldrick.
  • Recording available now to watch in your own time.
  • Cost $132 AUS dollars incl GST. £75 UK sterling.

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, somatic 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. Annabel demonstrates this during the webinar with video clips of several sessions with different clients, who each have their own unique healing experience with this powerful transpersonal approach.

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 existential experience for some people.

This webinar also discusses the concept of the vanishing twin, showing a client who processes this deeply traumatic early grief.

We hear case studies from therapists who’ve been experimenting with Annabel’s protocol.

If you pay for the recording you’ll also receive further reading material, powerpoints and Annabel’s one page clear to follow, simple preverbal protocol.
