What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This specialized form of therapy is used to treat clients who have experienced trauma. People who have lived through traumatic experiences often report feeling as though they are stuck in the past, feeling flooded by negative memories. These traumatic experiences often shake our belief systems, making us doubt ourselves or feel unsafe. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation through eye movements, tapping, or vibrating buzzers to help re-process these memories and restore them in a healthier way. This process helps desensitize us to the memories and shift from negative beliefs about ourselves and the world to more adaptive beliefs.
