General information

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful and effective psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  EMDR relies on the brain’s self-healing capacity. It helps to activate your brain’s natural emotional healing system and remove improperly stored images, thoughts or feelings that get in the way.

The goal of EMDR is to process completely the experiences that are causing problems, and to include new ones that are needed for full health. By alternately stimulating the right and left sides of the brain, EMDR processing allows experiences that are causing problems to be "digested" and stored appropriately in your brain, thereby allowing room for the potential for new positive experience.
