Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing

EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy which has been clinically proven in the treatment of Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Traumatic events can cause severe symptoms in people when left unresolved. We don't always recognize how traumatic a relationship break-up, loss of a job or a car accident can actually be. Disturbing thoughts, images and body sensations in the present can leave us debilitated with fear and shame.

EMDR allows the body to release stored memories, feelings, negative beliefs and physical symptoms caused by trauma. The event is then perceived as only a memory without the excess fear, pain or distress surrounding it.

EMDR is highly effective for recent traumatic experiences such as a car accident or for past trauma such as childhood abuse.
