Let’s talk about EMDR.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized therapeutic approach known for its effectiveness in treating various mental health issues, particularly trauma-related conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and performance anxiety. The core focus of EMDR is the activation and desensitization of traumatic memories to alleviate negative self-beliefs, triggering visuals, and uncomfortable body sensations.

The therapy aims to untangle these negative aspects and facilitate the mind’s transition to what EMDR terms the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model. By doing so, individuals can think more accurately about life events or relationships, recognizing that traumatic triggers belong to the past. Ultimately, EMDR enables people to live in the present without the lingering impact of earlier life traumas. For. those that have had limited success with traditional talk therapy, EMDR can be a game changer.

EMDR, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is indeed a widely recognized and effective therapeutic approach for processing and healing painful or unprocessed memories from the past. View Services

EMDR is not hypnosis, nor will you be forced to relive your past. During an EMDR therapy session, you are fully aware and in control. In EMDR therapy, your counselor will help you get into a more relaxed and grounded state of mind. You will be guided to move beyond the analytical mind. It is in this state that your brain is able to reprocess the targeted memories.

All forms of therapy, especially trauma therapy, can make symptoms worse at the outset. That’s because until now, you’ve probably been repressing your traumatic memories and feelings.

You end each of our sessions by doing a visual to help you put away any disturbing thoughts or memories. Another major component of EMDR is coping skills. You work on finding and practicing skills that help you deal with symptoms when they’re most likely to arise, such as the evening after a session. In summary, EMDR is a therapeutic approach that helps individuals process and heal from past traumatic experiences, providing relief from emotional distress while allowing individuals to maintain their memories. It does so by utilizing the brain’s innate healing mechanisms, making it a valuable tool in the field of trauma therapy
