Explore the transformative potential of EMDR, a specialized therapy crafted to alleviate the distress associated with Trauma

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy technique designed to relieve the distress associated with disturbing memories. EMDR involves recalling a specific troublesome experience while following a side-to-side visual stimulus delivered by the therapist. The resulting lateral eye movements are thought to help reduce the emotional charge of the memory so that the experience can be safely discussed, digested, and stripped of the power to trigger anxiety and avoidance.

EMDR is based on the idea that negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are the result of unprocessed memories. The treatment involves standardized procedures that include focusing simultaneously on spontaneous associations of traumatic images, thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations and bilateral stimulation that is most commonly in the form of repeated eye movements.

EMDR is included in several evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of PTSD and other forms of trauma.
