Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment approach that facilities the processing of past traumatic events that impact us in our current lives. Research has shown it to be rapid, effective and applicable to a variety of issues.  It has proven successful in the treatment of:

  • PTSD
  • Anxiety, Stress & Panic
  • Phobias
  • Relationship Issues
  • Addictions
  • Chronic Pain
  • Sexual & Physical Abuse
  • Sleep Problems
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Grief & Loss
  • Disturbing memories or experiences from earlier in our lives

With the use of bi-lateral stimulation (eye movements, hand-tapping, knee-taping, etc.), EMDR appears to unlock the nervous system and allow the brain to reprocess disturbing memories. The dual focus – being in the present moment while calling up the disturbing memory – facilitates the brain in moving the disturbance from emotion intense areas of the brain to cognitive areas where it can be recalled with a much decreased level of disturbance.
