Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly effective therapeutic approach if you have experienced trauma or are suffering from anxiety, depression and/or other distressing life experiences. It is a safe, non-invasive form of therapy which directly affects the way your brain processes information. The idea behind EMDR is that traumatic events are not processed at the time they happened but are instead locked into the brain. Without processing, these memories can be suddenly “triggered” by sights, sounds emotions, smell and sensation. EMDR allows the brain to process these memories in a safe, non-invasive way using alternating eye movements, hand taps, or sounds. The result is elimination of emotional distress, gaining powerful insights and behavioural changes. This powerful therapeutic approach is a very effective treatment for many conditions.
