EMDR Therapy

EMDR a form of therapy that can help individuals struggling with various mental health challenges. Our goal is to provide you with an overview of what EMDR therapy is, how it works, and what you can expect if you decide to pursue this type of treatment.

EMDR therapy, which stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, was developed in the 1980s by psychologist Francine Shapiro. It is a type of therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and more.

Here are a few key things to know about EMDR therapy:

  • EMDR therapy typically involves a series of sessions with a trained therapist. During these sessions, you'll be asked to focus on a traumatic or distressing event while also tracking a visual or auditory stimulus, such as a moving light or a series of beeps.

  • The goal of EMDR therapy is to help you process traumatic or distressing experiences in a way that allows you to move forward in a healthy, productive way. By tracking the visual or auditory stimulus while thinking about the traumatic event, you may be able to reprocess the memory in a way that reduces its emotional impact.

  • EMDR therapy can be effective for a wide range of mental health challenges, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and more. It can also be helpful for individuals who have experienced a single traumatic event, such as a car accident or natural disaster.

  • While EMDR therapy can be effective, it's important to note that it may not be the right choice for everyone. Your therapist can help you determine whether EMDR therapy is a good fit for your specific needs and goals.
