EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy

What is EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for treating trauma. EMDR combines standardized protocols with elements from various therapeutic approaches to help patients process deeply entrenched traumatic memories.

How does EMDR work?

EMDR therapy utilizes a technique called bilateral stimulation, engaging both sides of the brain through eye movements or tapping. This method mirrors the brain activity during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep — a phase often associated with processing recent events. By facilitating this state, EMDR helps unlock and reprocess traumatic memories, allowing for a resumption of normal information processing. This therapy is particularly effective in addressing the negative beliefs that stem from relational trauma, childhood abuse, or neglect.

What does EMDR help?

Originally developed for PTSD, EMDR has also shown significant efficacy in treating a variety of conditions including:

  • Panic Attacks
  • Complicated Grief
  • Disturbing Memories
  • Phobias
  • Pain Disorders
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Stress Reduction
  • Sexual and Physical Abuse
  • Personality Disorders

Considering EMDR Therapy?

Even if the above symptoms don't seem to match your experience, EMDR therapy might still be beneficial. If you find yourself overwhelmed by disproportionate emotions, reactive to specific triggers, or struggling with dysfunctional beliefs about yourself, EMDR therapy could help you release these burdens.
