What is EMDR Therapy?
Sometimes insight is not enough. The negative beliefs about ourselves, emotions, and sensations can stay with us even after we’ve discovered the impact of the things that have happened to us.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a method of therapy used to treat trauma-related issues. When we go through something so distressing that it overwhelms our ability to cope, our brains are sometimes unable to process it. This is why we may continue to experience the same thoughts, sensations and emotions long after the event is over. EMDR uses eye movements, sounds, and/or tapping to activate opposite sides of the brain, helping us to process the event and reduce the distress we feel about it. EMDR is useful in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and many other challenges, helping to make what we feel match what we know.
