Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

It is a powerful psychotherapy technique that has been proven effective in helping people who suffer from Trauma (PTSD)PhobiaDepressionAnxietyStress, and other mental disorders.

EMDR Therapy is in helping people process emotionally painful and traumatic experiences. Processing even the most difficult memories can be dealt with in a much shorter time compared to traditional therapy.

EMDR sessions help move the client quickly from emotional distress to peaceful resolution.

– Shock or loss in adult life

– Issues experienced during childhood (including sexual assault or abuse)

– Relationship issues

– Stress

– Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

– Chronic pain (Psychosomatic Disorders)
