EMDR therapy has changed thousands of lives for the better, a trained EMDR psychologist can do the same for you.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR Therapy) 

What is EMDR Therapy?

When you cut your finger, your mind and body work towards healing it. However, if the wound isn’t cleaned, it gets irritated and causes intense pain. Unless the injury is cleaned and the blockage is removed, the healing can’t begin. The same thing happens with mental processes.

 

EMDR therapy is a highly effective therapy that identifies and removes the emotional wound that was causing intense suffering and helps you move towards healing and peace.

EMDR therapy has shown to be very effective in treating PTSD, anxiety, depression, trauma, childhood trauma, panic attacks, stress, chronic pain and eating disorders in as little as 4-12 sessions. By using EMDR therapy, what would have once taken years to overcome, can now be done in a few sessions.

What Can EMDR Treat?

How effective is EMDR therapy?

​The EMDR Institute completed more than 30 studies that showed the effectiveness of EMDR. Some studies showed that 80-100% of the single-trauma victims and 77% of multiple trauma victims were no longer diagnosed with PTSD after only six EMDR sessions. In another study, 77% of combat veterans were free of PTSD in just 12 sessions. 

What to Expect During EMDR Sessions:

At the start of your EMDR session, you and a trained EMDR therapists work together to identify the original memories or situations that are causing the emotional pain. These are the core traumas that have caused distress and are targets for EMDR reprocessing.

 

Your EMDR therapist will show you different ways of reducing distress during and between sessions. The goal of the EMDR therapist is promote effective and rapid change while keeping you in a peaceful state of mind.

 

During a standard EMDR therapy session, your EMDR therapist directs your eye movements while you relive small doses of your targeted traumatic memories. EMDR tones down the emotional reaction to those memories by keeping you distracted, making them easier to face and overcome.
