EMDR Therapy Intensives

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy Intensives

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy Intensives

The Therapy Hub is dedicated to proactively and creatively delivering therapy services to meet the needs of our community. We’re excited to be delivering EMDR Therapy in an intensive format. In-person and online.

Our commitment to offering EMDR in an intensive format is aimed at providing an efficient and effective way to address trauma-related symptoms. EMDR therapy intensives offer a brief approach for those who do not need, or already have, the support of a separate ongoing therapist. 

Research supports the notion that this approach can lead to rapid and significant improvements compared to traditional therapy methods. We have a strong belief in the effectiveness of EMDR for treating trauma symptoms, and our Intensive Program provides extended and frequent EMDR treatment sessions, offering options for both one-week (Program One) and two-week (Program Two) formats.

What is an EMDR Therapy Intensive?

In an EMDR Intensive with The Therapy Hub you receive a minimum of 6 sessions (6x50min) of one-on-one focused EMDR Therapy within one week (Program One). Program Two is 12x50min sessions.

EMDR intensives are more time efficient than standard therapy.  Time is not needed for a) checking in at the beginning of each session, b) addressing new crises and concerns, c) closure processes at the end of each session.

Who Can Benefit from an EMDR Therapy Intensive?

  • Individuals of ANY age [EMDR therapy is effective for children too]
  • Individuals who feel ready to intensively address a specific treatment goal
  • Individuals seeking accelerated healing from trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, phobias, and other emotional challenges.
  • Individuals who prefer an immersive and concentrated approach to therapy.
  • Individuals who feel highly motivated to do this work
  • Individuals who do not require, or already have, other regular therapy sessions (e.g. weekly/fortnightly/ monthly therapy)
  • Individuals who have previously experienced the benefits of standard EMDR therapy and wish to delve deeper.

This model is may not best for you if you

  • Are looking for supportive counselling/’ talk-therapy (rather than structured change therapy)
  • Need an ongoing therapy relationship and do not have one yet
  • Have difficulties that need stabilising first, such as a suicidality, self-harm, substance abuse, significant dissociative difficulties, or current life crises
  • Are not ready for change
