What is EMDR?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly effective therapy approach for clients suffering from anxiety, trauma, depression and other distressing life events. It is a safe, non-invasive form of therapy with fast results. EMDR directly effects the way our brain processes information, which can become disorganized or stuck after experiencing a trauma. Similar to the processing that occurs in REM sleep, EMDR utilizes eye movement to re-calibrate the nervous system and create connection between the brain's hemispheres to reprocess traumatic events into less distressing memories.

This technique is able to reduce the disturbance level of a specific memory, without a client feeling the pain associated with the memory. This type of processing occurs without left brain interference and activation of our conscious defenses. By cultivating present observer position, rather than activating and re-experiencing the trauma, clients are able to process a disturbing memory/trauma without feeling distress. The goal of this treatment is transformational, permanent change that produces symptom cessation and non-reactivation from previous triggers. This technique is best used in conjunction with the EMDR protocol, and is especially useful for individuals who dissociate or experience emotional flooding and intense affect due to trauma.
