have attended Kincora therapy for both Bowen sessions & for EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
Orla has a fabulous approach in both versatility of her skills / services offered and ability to adapt to the clients needs. Aside from above she is a genuinely nice person who is always focused on making sure you feel at ease.
The Bowen sessions always left me with a fantastic sense of well being. EMDR as best I can try and explain what I understand of how it works, is a treatment that helps to work on changing perceptions / behavioural patterns that are negatively impactful or damaging to a persons current wellbeing and healing these by reprogramming more positive perceptions / tools.
This is done by working with your sub conscious rather then via other traditional therapy methods. Its described as helping with a range of things from but not limited to PTSD to general anxiety. The sessions had a really positive outcome in relation to anxiety and resulting anxiety attacks for me and in a surprisingly short timescale. It’s not a miracle, there is work involved and in my case it was small changes that were noticeable but it allows you to build on these changes where before you may have struggled with obstacles preventing this.

Pippa Wrote : It took me ages to keep the appointment with one thing and another, and I so nearly cancelled the day I did finally go. I’m glad I didn’t. I felt low, tearful, sick and unmotivated that afternoon and I wasn’t in the mood for anything. After routine questions and explanations of how it worked, we found a method that suited me. It made me dizzy switching eyes constantly so a clicking pen was preferred. I chose my memory, and the feeling that went with it. And then it just sort of began…. I had no idea what it was about other than that it was to do with eye movement. I thought maybe since it’s considered well suited to trauma victims etc, that it would be sort of talking therapy where the therapist analyses the eye movements and gauges their patient’s emotional status that way. Or something. What it actually involved was, I think, a way of switching hemispheres of the brain from right to left, and helping adjust the thinking that way, turning a weak and “bad” memory that affects person badly, into a shadow and into something which doesn’t affect the person on such a deep level. I think this is amazingly clever, because the patient essentially does all the work. The therapist clicked, clicked, over and back, left and right, without saying a word or promoting the person’s thinking in any shape or form. Apart from reminding me once or twice of my “safe place”. I walked away elated. Lifted, like a weight had floated off, a weight I hadn’t realised was there so heavily. And I felt strongly empowered, knowing that it was really me who had turned those thoughts around, and chosen, myself, to feel good, elated and empowered. A short meditation while feeling grounded, at the end, reduced me to tears because I was moved by the words. Happy tears, emotional release tears that left me feeling even better after they had shed. I would highly recommend this form of therapy. To certain people. People willing to heal, and wanting to heal themselves, ready to accept help. It was like a boost of energy for me, and almost like a pick me up. I had no idea of the time or how much, how little, had passed. I found it interesting to keep returning to certain places, it further highlighted what issues I need to address. And showed me a way to work through those thoughts in a positive way. I’d love to do this again. Thank you orla. Your healing powers astound me. It’s a gift, as is your way with words. Beautiful.
