EMDR or "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing" is an empirically validated therapeutic intervention that directly affects the way that a person stores their own memories. When a disturbing event occurs, it can get locked into the brain with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feelings and body sensations. EMDR therapy helps to stimulate the information and allows the brain to reprocess the experiences and the associated material. It is your own brain that does all the healing.
Our personal history, adverse life experiences, and old stories can negatively impact the way that we think, feel, and respond to different situations in our lives. This simple process can greatly improve life quality and positively impact self esteem, reduce anxiety, decrease reactivity to triggers and change your approach and attitude towards your life and relationships.
