Have you experienced a recent or past traumatic situation? EMDR can help you feel better today! When a painful or upsetting experience happens to you, the memory of the experience sometimes stays “stuck” in your mind and body coming up through intrusive thoughts, memories, flashbacks, and even nightmares. These internal discomfort often causes upsetting emotions that can lead to anxiety and depression. Over time, these symptoms can lead to chronic pain and fatigue.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) has a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information that works quickly and effectively in treating symptoms related to trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) allowing you to feel relieved and hopeful in a relatively a short period of time. Following a successful EMDR session, you will have a new perspective on the trauma, and tend to no longer relive the images, sounds, and feelings associated to the traumatic event. You still remember the event, but it is less upsetting, giving you a sense of relief and hope.
This approach not only facilitates accessing and reprocessing traumatic memories but also negative beliefs about yourself that may interfere in the way you interact with others and some of the decisions you make. This modality helps to bring traumatic events to an adaptive resolution and teaches you ways to cope with triggers more effectively. This approach is safe and effective for adults and children.
