What is EMDR?

Using the eye to desensitize a memory/memories, EMDR can make traumatic memories lessen their effect on a person. 
  • “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories (Shapiro, 1989a, 1989b)”. 
  • “EMDR therapy facilitates the accessing and processing of traumatic memories and other adverse life experience to bring these to an adaptive resolution”. 

What EMDR treats and assists the client in:
  • Psychological trauma!! 
  • The memory block is removed to allow for healing
  • The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health instead of reacting.  
  • If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  
  • Once the block is removed, healing resumes.
