EMDR: What is it and How can it help you?

October 27, 2015

EMDR, or  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a non-invasive therapy approach in which early memories or incidents that are held in the nervous system are processed.  The therapist and the client identify a difficult or traumatic memory or incident that is still impacting the client in the present and the memory or incident is then processed using eye movements.  The processing of the memory allows the release of the memory and a more positive state of mind is achieved.  EMDR has the potential to achieve results in much less time than it might take in “talk therapy.”  The American Psychiatric Association identifies EMDR as the #1 treatment of post traumatic stress disorder.  Although very effective for PTSD, EMDR is also effective for many issues including panic disorder, anxiety, depression as well as many other clinical issues.
