What is EMDR?

A brief overview...

One of the top methods of therapy used for treating several anxiety types, phobias, forms of PTSD, and general depression is eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)–a method of psychotherapy that has grown in popularity over the last decade. When you seek EMDR counselling you can expect to develop healthy coping mechanisms with newly rebooted brain cells that will enable you to live your daily life without the overwhelming feeling of anxiety consuming you.

How does it help?

In a nutshell...

When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  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.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
