Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms of emotional distress and psychological pain that occurred as a result of negative life events. Studies show that EMDR not only works much faster than traditional therapies but the results are maintained long after therapy has ended.

One of the key aspects of EMDR therapy is that the mind can heal from adverse events often in the same way the body recovers from an injury. For example, if you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. However, if a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Our minds work in similar ways in that that once a traumatic event is experienced, the mind makes repeated attempts to heal itself, but often cannot if something blocks this process. As a result, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering and distress. EMDR works to remove this blockage, which resumes the mind’s natural healing process. Clients who are successful in EMDR therapy often describe feeling “free…unburdened…unshackled” and describe previously stressful events as no longer having an effect on them. The results of EMDR are drastically subtle and for many, it is life changing. Through EMDR you will find your breakthrough.
