EMDR

WHAT IS EMDR?
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy encourages patients to focus on their trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (i.e. eye movements). We can associate this with a reduction in vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. First developed in the late 1980's to treat ​Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), EMDR is now utilized by over 20,000 trained clinicians worldwide to treat other concerns.
