What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. 

EMDR is a therapeutic technique that is extremely effective for the relief of psychological stress.  EMDR assists with the relief of anxiety; post-traumatic stress disorder; panic disorder; grief and bereavement and any concern where one feels “stuck”. 

 

As EMDR clinicians we believe when a person is very upset, their brain cannot process information in the same was when they are not upset or distressed. We may become “stuck” in a place and remembering a trauma may feel just as powerful as when we were experiencing that trauma. Such traumas and memories have a lasting negative effect that interferes with the way a person sees the world.

 

The benefits of EMDR can be seen as an extremely beneficial and powerful.  If you are interested in learning more about EMDR please visit www.emdria.org
