Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy that helps individuals heal from emotional distress that has been caused by trauma or deeply difficult or disturbing life experiences.
EMDR is a relatively new therapy that has been proven to quickly and effectively reduce symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, anxiety, distressing memories, grief, and several other emotional issues. Until recently, treatment for these symptoms was often a lengthy and difficult process. For some individuals, remembering a trauma may feel as bad as going through it again because the images, sounds, feelings haven’t changed. Such memories can have a lasting negative effect that interferes with daily life and relationships. EMDR is a powerful and efficient option for those seeking lasting relief from distress and recovery from trauma.
After EMDR therapy, the patient will be able to recall traumatic events without the associated negative emotions and achieve a more peaceful state.
