What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is a form of therapy that is used to treat a variety of issues such as anxiety, past and current emotional trauma, future fears, and negative core beliefs about oneself.
EMDR focuses on the brain's ability to constantly learn, taking past experiences, and updating them with present information.
EMDR uses a set of procedures to organize your negative and positive feelings, emotions, and thoughts, and uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or alternating tapping, as the way to help you effectively work through those disturbing memories.
The course of treatment depends on the complexity of your problems and your treatment goals. Usually, EMDR is only one of the several treatment approaches that will be used to help you.
