Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of therapy that helps individuals with traumatic memories.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is proven to help individuals who experience symptoms of depression, trauma and PTSD, anxiety, addictions, phobias, and other emotional problems.
EMDR influences the way our brain processes information by releasing emotional experiences that are stuck.
A trained therapist works alongside you to recall thoughts, feelings, or memories. Then will use a technique that allows you to see, hear or touch something that moves from side to side. For example, an object that your eyes follow from side to side. It is similar to watching a tennis match. The brain will then reprocess the memories causing a disruption in your life and exchanges them for more peaceful images and memories.
Research suggests that EMDR is successful in the treatment of PTSD 80% – 90% of the time. People report progress in the resolution of symptoms faster than with talk therapy.
