Traumas and long term anxiety and depression can often leave you stuck replaying upsetting memories or "on a loop" and EMDR Therapy is designed to help get you unstuck!
What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR therapy is a therapy approach that uses eye movements along with talk therapy to help your brain let go of these loops, which allows you to begin the healing process. EMDR therapy has been proven to help with severe PTSD symptoms and is highly effective in treating anxiety, reoccurring upsetting memories, grief and panic attacks. It's designed to help you deal with upsetting things in a better way.
Eye Movement - what does that mean?
Part of EMDR Therapy includes activating both hemispheres of your brain. This is done through two methods - you watching a light or your therapist's hand moving side to side or through "tapping" in which your therapist will tap your knee. You and your therapist will talk about the methods that you are most comfortable with.
