What is EMDR Therapy?

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.

EMDR Therapy has been extensively studied and validated by regulating and governmental bodies in the United States and around the world such as the World Health Organization and the American Psychological Association.

This therapy is used for the treatment of the following:

– Trauma, such as direct or indirect experiences of violence, accidents or natural disaster

– Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

– Anxiety

– Depression

– Phobias and Fears

– Low Self-esteem

– Chronic Abuse (Emotional, Physical, Verbal)

– Shock or loss in adult life

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

– Relationship issues

– Feeling stuck

– Stress

– Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

– Chronic pain (Psychosomatic Disorders)

Who is an EMDR Therapist?

An EMDR Therapist has a Master’s Degree in the mental health field (Psychotherapy, Counselling, Marriage Family Therapy, Psychology, Psychiatry, Social Work, etc.), and completed the Basic EMDR training program approved by EMDRIA.

A Basic EMDR Trained Therapist has the knowledge and skills to utilize EMDR, an understanding of case conceptualization and treatment planning, and the ability to integrate EMDR into his or her clinical practice.

EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. The therapist uses all the protocols to treat patients. Excerpts from EMDRIA and EMDR Canada.
