Depression and loss of interest are the main symptoms of depression. Many people with depression also feel overtired. This has to do with the fact that sleeping problems can also be one of the symptoms of depression. Because of depression symptoms you cannot see the nice things in life anymore, you cut yourself off and you become isolated. This is something that happens to many depression patients and it only makes the depression worse. That is why timely treatment is so important.
It is not always easy to pinpoint a specific cause of depression. In many cases, it is a combination of biological, social and mental factors. Heredity is one of the most important biological factors. If you are predisposed, you are much more likely to be affected by depression. This is a mental factor. If your depression is caused by social factors, it may be that you have had a traumatic experience that you have not processed. In this case, EMDR can be of great benefit to you.
EMDR is the abbreviation of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a form of therapy that was developed in 1989 by an American psychologist. Central to EMDR is the overloading of the working memory by means of distraction at the moment the patient thinks of a traumatic experience. This means that EMDR depression is especially suitable if the cause can clearly be traced back to an unprocessed trauma. The patient with depression has to load the trauma into the working memory and is distracted in the process. This will eventually lead to giving the trauma a place and looking back on the event with less emotion.
The goal of Psylaris is to support therapists even better with sufficient EMDR techniques and tools. EMDR in virtual reality is the latest development. The Psylaris Care consists of virtual reality (VR) glasses that can be connected to various modules. Initially, the VR glasses are used in the treatment room and ensure that the patient enters a virtual environment. This ensures an intensive treatment, making a shorter course of treatment necessary. If the patient is ready, the glasses can be given to him or her for use at home, which means that treatment can also take place at home. There are various modules available for the VR glasses. Besides the EMDR module, there is also a module for the treatment of fear, phobia and stress. Psylaris continues to develop, so that more modules will be released in the near future for an even wider range of treatment.
We believe with the combination of intelligent software and qualified therapists we can develop a system in which everyone, anytime and anywhere has direct access to efficient and affordable psychological care.
