How Does It Work?

The therapist works with the client to revisit a traumatic moment or incident, recalling feelings surrounding the experience, and any negative thoughts, feelings and memories. The therapist then uses a light bar and earphones for bilateral auditory and visual stimulation.

The client tracks the movements with his or her eyes, as if watching ping pong. The more intensely the client focuses on the memory, the easier it becomes for the memory to come to life.

 

About EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful new method of doing
psychotherapy that has helped more than a million people of all ages relieve many types of
psychological distress. EMDR is helpful in the treatment of panic attacks, anxiety, performance
anxiety, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse
and complicated grief.

Until recently, these conditions were difficult and time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a
breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring quick and lasting relief
for most types of emotional distress.

What are the Symptoms that can be helped by EMDR?

  • High anxiety and lack of motivation.
  • Depression.
  • Memories of a traumatic experience.
  • Fear of being alone.
  • Unrealistic feelings of guilt and shame.
  • Difficulty in trusting others.
  • Relationship problems.

 

 

As quick and vibrant images arise during the therapy session, they are processed by the eye movements, resulting in painful feelings being exchanged for more peaceful, loving and resolved feelings.
