EMDR is an eye movement therapy. It incorporates bilateral stimulation of the brain, which helps to soothe the brain so that traumatic memories can be revisited without the participant being retraumatized.
What many people experience from EMDR treatment is not only a freedom from challenging life and relationship patterns, but access to positive and adaptive ways of believing about themselves.
Our brains naturally want to go towards healing and when you give the brain a tool such as EMDR powerful healing happens.
EMDR has the potential to help lighten the load a brain carries after trauma and developmental disruptions. The process allows individuals to see the things they’ve experienced differently and to move towards posttraumatic growth!
Eye movement therapies accelerate the healing process by allowing the participant an opportunity to let go of a belief, a feeling or a body sensation that might take them years of talk therapy to move away from.
EMDR opens a doorway in the brain that allows a survivor to joyfully add tons of healing, wisdom, peace and self- compassion to both their self-concept and their relationships.
