Restless feeling caused by trauma

Everyone can have the feeling of being agitated, restless and stressed. It happens especially when you have a busy time at work or in your private life. This is usually a temporary situation, so that afterwards you are more relaxed. But there are also people who are always in a hurry. Even when they try to sit quietly on the sofa, they continue to have this feeling. What is the cause of this?

How does a restless, agitated feeling arise?

There can be several factors that make you feel restless and agitated. Nowadays, the main cause is our busy lifestyle. We are always busy: with work, with school, with sports and with club life. This means that we hardly have time for rest and relaxation, and when we have nothing to do, we continue to feel restless. Another agitated feeling cause, is experiencing an overworked trauma. An unresolved trauma keeps coming back as a kind of movie that is played over and over again. You then have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The mental and physical reaction to this is flight. You do not want to relive your trauma again, so you flee. This can be, for example, in another fear or phobia, but avoidance behaviour is also very common with PTSD. This escape behaviour gives a constant feeling of being hunted and stressed.

What are the consequences of feeling agitated and restless?

Feeling agitated and restless can have major consequences, both mentally and physically. If your body is constantly under stress, it will eventually have consequences and you will be much more susceptible to diseases and disorders. The main symptoms you will experience are heart palpitations, hyperventilation, difficulty concentrating and poor sleep. The latter, in turn, results in all sorts of sleeping problems and poor daytime functioning. Eventually, all that tension and stress can cause you to become overworked or even burn out.

How can you get more peace?

If you are stressed because of the pressure at work or because of a certain private situation, the best way to get peace is to resolve these situations. Do you suffer from an unresolved trauma and are you always agitated and restless because of it? Then you would do well to seek professional help. The source, namely tackling the trauma, is very difficult to do yourself. With the therapy EMDR you will certainly succeed. EMDR is still a relatively new therapy, but it has proven itself, even though science has not yet figured out exactly how the therapy effects the brain.

The effect of EMDR

With EMDR, it is assumed that distraction helps to give the trauma a place. Once the trauma has been dealt with, all the other symptoms usually disappear too, such as fears. The distraction takes place when the client relives the trauma at the request of the therapist. The client has to follow a hand gesture or listen to a sound signal and at that moment no longer thinks about the trauma. All thoughts of the trauma are suddenly released. By repeating this over and over again, the retrieval of the trauma will eventually become easier. The trauma will get a permanent place and this is the ultimate goal. Because of this, the trauma will no longer have a big influence on daily life and it will result in PTSD. The hunted and tense feeling will also be gone.

Psylaris helps practitioners with EMDR in a modern way

Psylaris' vision is to make mental health care more accessible for clients and easier to work with for practitioners. Psylaris has developed tools for EMDR, which make it easier and more accessible. EMDR-remote. is the online platform of Psylaris. On this stable platform, the practitioner and client can log in via a web browser and make video calls via a stable connection. This way, EMDR can be given remotely. The practitioner has more possibilities to distract through the platform and the client can be treated at any location. Psylaris has also taken the necessary steps with virtual reality. The VR glasses are a valuable addition to an EMDR treatment. Because the client is completely disconnected from the outside world, and distraction works optimally. The client is, as it were, in the distraction itself. Again, the practitioner has sufficient possibilities to distract and even design his own distraction tasks. When the client takes the VR goggles home, it is also possible to do EMDR treatment remotely with VR.

EMDR therapy with modern methods

As a developer of modern methods and tools in mental healthcare, Psylaris has also made EMDR easy with modern techniques. Virtual reality, for example, plays an increasingly important role in the mental healthcare sector. With EMDR-VR and EMDR-plus, Psylaris has developed a VR-module. The module can easily be used by the practitioner and has many distraction possibilities. The client gets a more intense distraction than during a regular treatment. The VR glasses can be used both at home and in the treatment room. This makes both the practitioner and the client more flexible.

If the client is unable to come to the treatment centre, Psylaris uses EMDR-remote to make it possible to receive EMDR treatment at home. EMDR-remote is the online EMDR platform of Psylaris, where the practitioner and the client can conduct an EMDR session via video calling. Again, the practitioner has many possibilities to distract and the client, who is chained to the house, is still being treated.
