You feel like you’re falling apart, and you’re at the end of your rope. Your ongoing emotional disturbances or intrusive thoughts are driving you crazy. You seem powerless to change the negative self-talk, self-esteem, or self-perceptions that constantly play in your head. People find your emotions extreme and out of sync with the situation, and you’re highly reactive to certain triggers.
You know there’s something wrong, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t change. Maybe you’ve tried traditional methods of therapy that may have helped some people, but you still feel broken or continue to struggle with remnants of your original issue.
If you can relate, you may be a perfect candidate for EMDR therapy. Reach out to us for a free phone consultation.
What is EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that is extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma as well as a host of other conditions.
How does EMDR work?
EMDR therapy uses a technique called bilateral stimulation, or left to right movement, to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain. Therapists often use eye movements to facilitate bilateral stimulation, but tapping or audio stimuli can be utilized as well. These left-to-right movements help your brain mimic the period of sleep referred to as rapid eye movement or REM sleep, which is when your mind processes the recent events in your life. Through this movement, the brain is able to access parts that are not easily reachable through traditional therapy methods, allowing it to process events and memories that contribute to problematic ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
What does EMDR help?
EMDR originally was established as a trauma treatment; however, it’s been proven useful for a host of conditions, including but not limited to:
Sexual and/or Physical Abuse
Body Dysmorphic Disorders
