Schema Therapy

Schema Therapy has been developed by the US psychotherapist Jeffrey Young. As a therapeutic approach, Schema Therapy stems from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but it develops as an integrated model by making intensive use of experiential and emotion focused interventions. Great interest is placed on childhood issues and the understanding of the origin of problematic behaviour patterns.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapeutic treatment discovered in 1989 by american psychologist Francine Shapiro. EMDR is used to process traumatic memories and over the years it has been the subject of many research studies. Today is considered to be an evidence-based treatment for PTSD and it is validated by more research publications than any other form of therapeutic treatment in the field of trauma.

Trauma and Dissociation

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and feels the screams healing can begin”. (Danielle Bernock)

When thinking of trauma, we think of events that are outside normal human experience. I’m referring to experiences universally recognised as traumatic, such as war, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, rapes or any other violent form of aggression. These ‘abnormal’ events may, as it is widely accepted, cause a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). But trauma is not only about those traumatic events with a ‘big T’.
