As one of the few psychologists in Brisbane licensed for EDMR, Dr Jane Zhao-O’Brien is specially trained in a variety of areas to make sure you loved ones stay mentally well. Mental health is often neglected, but when you are comfortable with your psychologist, you can finally break free. The mind is like a factory continuously processing and resolving life events, and much of this natural coping mechanism occurs during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Traumatic experiences can overwhelm the mind’s capacity to cope, causing the system to grind to a halt. EMDR re-activates the brain’s self-healing process through bilateral stimulation, simulating REM whilst clients remain awake and in control.
