“Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.”* It is even recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the treatment of trauma and specifically for PTSD.
We are naturally healing seeking beings and if we get what we need we can recover from unbelievable pain and struggle. During difficult events, traumas, or prolonged periods of stress our brains and bodies do what is necessary to survive. We then make meaning out of our experience over time and we try to move on. Sometimes we feel stuck around these events, issues, or traumas, and symptoms of distress develop. These can look like anxiety, depression, addictions, fears, difficulties in relationships, chronic pain, and so much more. EMDR allows for a second chance to naturally heal the mind, body, and emotions; relieving distress and the symptoms that go with it. EMDR is used to develop and strengthen natural internal resources and to allow your brain to heal itself! With EMDR the therapist’s most important task is to allow your natural healing to occur without getting in your brain’s way.
