EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing which is an evidence-based psychotherapy model that allows you to process unresolved trauma without intense talking or even homework. EMDR has been extensively researched and proven to be the most effective model for trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and many other symptoms. It is known for bringing quick and lasting relief of symptoms.
Our brain operates like a filing cabinet. When memories are not stored properly due to trauma, abuse, and other stressful scenarios, the memories tend to get in the way of our day-to-day living. They become trapped in our nervous system. EMDR works by activating both sections of your brain and allows reprocessing to occur by using bilateral stimulation. This prompts the brain to reprocess memories and file them away in the proper places, so they are no longer causing more stress or disturbance.
