International Women’s Day 8 March

March 8, 2022


On International Women’s Day we draw attention to the bravery of Lucy who showed great courage after being sexually assaulted.  She went to the police and the case was taken to court, but tragically, after this ordeal, Lucy developed post-traumatic stress disorder. It was a long time before she found the right help, but with EMDR she was able to find peace and now has a successful career providing pastoral care to students.  She says of EMDR “I was taught how to return to a safe place in my mind – for me it was a trip to the mountains of Armenia – when the memories got too much.  It’s a phenomenal therapy, very quick and hits the spot other therapies don’t quite reach.”
