Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

What is EMDR Therapy?


What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, is a proven treatment method designed to address the impact of traumatic experiences and other distressing life events. Based on extensive research and endorsed by trusted sources, EMDR therapy offers a balanced and effective approach to processing unresolved memories.



How Does EMDR Work?

The underlying principle of EMDR therapy is that unresolved memories can disrupt our present-day lives. These memories may not have been properly processed by our brains, particularly if they were traumatic. EMDR aims to reprocess these memories by connecting positive and life-affirming information from the present with the neural networks that hold the traumatic experiences.

During an EMDR session, your therapist guides you through a structured process. You'll briefly focus on the traumatic memory while engaging in bilateral stimulation, often through gentle eye movements. This stimulation has been shown to reduce the vividness and emotional intensity associated with traumatic memories, promoting healing and relief.
