This content includes case studies about EMDR therapy and Nyctophobia. EMDR therapy is a highly effective psychotherapy practice especially in post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, and Nyctophobia.
What is EMDR therapy?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a therapeutic technique that can be used to heal the painful thoughts, images, and emotions brought about by past traumatic experiences.
What is Nyctophobia?
Nyctophobia is an “irrational fear of night or darkness”. Interestingly, it’s also the name given to the scientific study of animals that have photoreceptors in their eye.
Ms. Z. had a death phobia. She was also afraid of the darkness.
However, she came to us with complaints such as irritability, fear of being alone, and introversion.
Besides her psychological complaints, her hair was completely shed.
Ms. Z. was admitted to Medical Park Psychiatry Clinic and drug treatment was started.
Psychologist Enise Öziç:
As a result of the depersonalization of traumatic memories that were processed after each session, it was observed that they started to remember the memories that they could not remember. Our patient remembered the negative memories but they do not bother him anymore.
After a year and a few months later, her fears and problems did not recur.
As evidenced by Zeynep S.’s psychotherapy, EMDR therapy can make a person’s life more functional and can strengthen the personally.
When the sessions are over, Zeynep says that she no longer has the fears of death and darkness.
I thought everyone would die at midnight, I was very afraid, I can say that this therapy carried me from hot sand to cool waters. It’s nice to deal with normal life problems rather than the ones we create in our minds. It’s nice to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. Thanks to EMDR I’m enjoying my life better than ever.
