What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR Therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. It is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from different treatment approaches. At its core, EMDR is designed to help individuals process and heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences.

How Does EMDR Work?

EMDR Therapy works on the premise that our minds can heal from psychological trauma just as our bodies recover from physical trauma. Just as the body naturally works to close a wound, the mind seeks to move toward mental health. However, certain blocks or imbalances caused by traumatic experiences can interrupt this natural healing process. EMDR Therapy aims to remove these blocks, allowing the brain to resume its natural healing process.

Through EMDR, patients are able to reprocess traumatic information until it is no longer psychologically disruptive. This involves the use of bilateral stimulation, such as side-to-side eye movements, which facilitates the reduction of emotional distress and strengthens adaptive beliefs related to the traumatic event.
