Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) was the probably the most effective tool out there for dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma with all the research to prove it's efficacy. But now I have developed my own BLAST Technique© (which you will learn in this workshop) and have used it many times for things such as serious accidents, violent assaults, rape and child abuse and it has changed the lives of many people. I wouldn't be as an effective therapist without it, it is one of the reasons I take the cases other therapists avoid.
This is seriously one tool I believe everybody should have at their disposal!
The following topics will be covered during the workshop:
- History of EMDR.
- Who is affected? (percentages of men and women.)
- How does it work? Shapiro’s and Gupta’s theories.
- The roles of the Amygdala, Hippocampus and Thalamus.
- Stress and the general adaptation syndrome (GAS).
- How it affects the organism.
- The NICE definition of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
- EMDR eight steps.
- EMDR standard protocol.
- DAS 42 scale - Testing for levels of stress, anxiety and/or depression.
- DAS 42 scoring template.
- DAS 42 results.
- Auditory and Kinaesthetic EMDR.
- How to spot PTSD or trauma with sensory acuity.
- Research and effectiveness of EMDR.
- NLP, EMDR, grinder and dilts.
- Eye accessing cues and my theory.
- Repression or suppression of emotional trauma (signs).
- The "Pending Tray" theory.
- The use of suggestion and metaphor.
- What is “Transactional Analysis”?
- How clients can replay the emotional trauma.
- The drama triangle and how it affects relationships.
- Applications of BLAST Technique© for cravings, guilt, anxiety etc.
- BLAST Technique© - How to massively increase the processing speed.
- BLAST Technique© protocol (short).
- Personal history.

Testimonials from previous attendees:
"The BLAST technique is such a powerful tool to add to any therapeutic skill set. The utilisation of practical components was extremely beneficial in grasping the technique and validating BLAST as an important tool in any PTSD work. I will definitely use BLAST in my practice." Chantal Bernard (counsellor).
"Excellent workshop, well prepared with thorough supporting notes and congruent, competent trainer who captivated the group with sensitivity and precision and delivered a very empowering day." Dr Mark Chambers (GP).
"I had an excellent BLAST Technique training with Nick. His confidence and delivery were faultless and I look forward to using this technique with my clients in my own practice." Nicola Beattie (hypnotherapist).
"Just to let you know I have been singing your praises on one of the LinkedIn forums in connection with eye movement therapies - I hope you get some enquiries about BLAST through that!
I am finding it a GoTo technique with most clients now. This week I saw a client referred from a psychotherapist who had been struggling with compulsive alcohol consumption for many years. In one BLAST session he had connected it to a negative belief set brought about through a disparaging comment from his father many years ago. It was a real lightbulb moment for him and he remarked... 'I sort of knew it, but his has helped me to really see it' ...a big step forward for him. Last week I had a 221-year-oldlad paralysed with anxiety about doing anything out of his comfort zone. One session of BLAST accessed a childhood memory of his being embarrassed in front of his father, friends etc and a huge fear of failure. Again, a real lightbulb moment. This chap described the experience like this: 'It was as though the front of my head went quiet and I was watching everything unfold on a screen in the back of my head'...Absolutely brilliant, I really can't speak highly enough of BLAST." Chris Sutcliffe (hypnotherapist).
"Excellent. Plenty of chance to practise. Enjoyed the group session with Nick as the difficult client. Thoroughly enjoyed this, a lovely group I can't wait to start using this. An excellent practical course. Another therapeutic tool for my toolkit. Thankyou Nick." Dr Jo Waddell (GP).
