Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a powerful therapeutic process designed to resolve memories of past difficult emotional experiences affecting one’s life. EMDR has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. Utilizing a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches, EMDR has helped an estimated two million people of all ages alleviate many types of psychological stress.
How does it work?
EMDR facilitates rapid processing of traumatic information and memories. Following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the harmful images, sounds and feelings when the event is brought to mind. EMDR is similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Thus, EMDR is a non-invasive psychologically-based therapy that helps a person to see traumatic memories in a less distressing way.
EMDR is helpful to anyone who may hope to resolve life stressors such as:
* Abuse (emotional, physical and sexual)
* Chronic Pain
* Disturbing Memories
* Eating Disorders
* Grief and Loss
* Healthy Lifestyles
* Panic Attacks
* Performance Anxiety
* Stress Reduction
