EMDR

EMDR therapy is recognized as an effective form of trauma treatment. EMDR stands for: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. No one knows exactly how EMDR works. However, we do know that when a person is very upset, their brain cannot process information as it does ordinarily.

One moment becomes “frozen in time” and remembering a trauma may feel as bad as going through it the first time because the image, sounds, smells and feelings haven’t changed. Such memories have a lasting negative effect on the way a person sees the world and relates to other people.

 

EMDR uses eye movement or other types of tactile or auditory stimulation to access both hemispheres of the brain and reprocess memories. EMDR affects the way the brain functions. Following a session, the images, sounds and feelings no longer are relived when the event is brought to mind. The traumatic memory is still remembered but it is less upsetting.

Although EMDR has been shown to be most effective with clients struggling with traumatic memories, it can also be used with many other life challenges and difficulties. It can help individuals process negative thoughts and instill more positive, life affirming cognitions in their place.
