What is EMDR and How Does it Work?

EMDR is based upon the notion that negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours stem from unprocessed memories associated with stressful or traumatic experiences.

In EMDR, your clinician asks you to think about your past trauma whilst also doing a benign task that competes with your ability to hold the trauma in your memory. Through this process, clients report that trauma memories lose their distress and clients report that they experience far fewer flasbacks and intrusive memories.

How is EMDR Different from Other Therapies? 

EMDR has been extensively researched in clinical trials and proven to be effective. It can assist individuals in overcoming their obstacles and restoring a quality of life that is no longer constrained by the past.  EMDR can be delivered as a therapy in its own right or in conjunction with other psychological approaches. 

Could it Be Right for Me?
