What Is EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy technique that has been proven effective in helping people who suffer from Trauma (PTSD), Anxiety, Phobia, Somatic Experiencing, and related 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 a peaceful resolution.

How Does This Therapy Work?

EMDR Therapy focuses on the past, the present, and the future.

A traumatic event or a situation that produces PTSD, anxiety, phobia, stress, and related mental disorders happens. It affects the body first, then the emotions kick in and the brain starts to “reprocess” the event. You think about it, sleep on it, get support, time passes, etc.

This therapy treatment works with the adaptive information processing system in the brain to change (reduce) the intensity of emotions, distressing experiences, and memories.

EMDR therapy can change the impact of a traumatic event (such as rape and sexual abuse, combat trauma, childhood trauma and neglect, life-threatening accidents, etc.) and effectively treat other related mental issues such as anxiety, fear, phobia, panic attack, and stress.

When you have completed EMDR Therapy, you will not only have resolved past traumatic memories, but you will also be comfortable with any present-day triggers and confident about any challenging issues coming up in the future.

Although you can still remember the traumatic event it no longer bothers you and you have peace with them.
