What is EMDR?

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, also known as EMDR, is a form of psychotherapy that works with the brain's natural abilities to heal itself. It is based on the idea that our brain stores negative memories differently than positive ones. We tend to replay bad experiences in our memories over and over. When these memories are replayed, they can cause distress and interfere with everyday life.

What Can EMDR Help With?

It is an effective therapy that helps individuals desensitize and reprocess difficult life events and traumas. While EMDR therapy was developed for the treatment of PTSD, it has also been used successfully to treat other mental health conditions.

Medical Trauma

EMDR helps people process and cope with the emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations that are associated with medical trauma.
Relationship Issues Individual Therapy

Relationship Issues

The bilateral eye movements help individuals process past issues that are interfering with current relationships.

Sleep Issues

EMDR has been proven to help with sleep problems without needing medication. This is because sleep troubles are often connected to trauma or anxiety, both of which can be treated with EMDR.
Trauma and PTSD Individual Therapy

Trauma and PTSD

EMDR helps people reprocess their trauma in a way that reduces the intensity of the distress and emotions.

How Does EMDR Work?

EMDR therapy helps people with past trauma resolve their symptoms. It works by stimulating different parts of the brain to help it heal itself. It uses a series of bilateral sensory input, such as eye movements, tapping, or sounds, to help the brain process trauma from the past. During this process, you may experience dulled feelings or emotions related to your trauma as well as a less intense physical reaction when reliving the event.
