Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing
Are you looking to feel better about an experience in your life?
Originally developed to treat symptoms stemming from traumatic events, EMDR is a well-researched, evidence-based therapeutic practice for many different issues including anxiety, depression, grief and low self-esteem.
EMDR uses a set of procedures to organize your negative and positive feelings, emotions, and thoughts, and then uses bilateral stimulation (eye movements or alternative tapping) to help you effectively work through those disturbing memories and feelings so that they lose their emotional grip over you and allow you to live more freely in the present moment.
Whether or not you are able to articulate your memory or concern, EMDR is a powerful tool to help you break through the emotional blocks from negative events and beliefs that are keeping you from living an adaptive, emotionally healthy life.
Unlike other therapy approaches for trauma (little and big), EMDR has:
1. NO need for detailed descriptions of the event
2. NO direct challenging of your beliefs
3. NO extended exposure to the event, and
4. NO homework
EMDR therapy sessions can be conducted in-person or online. Since my training in the most up-to-date EMDR procedures, I have seen its success in clients and so it has become one of my preferred treatment approaches for counselling.
