What is different about EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) focuses on the brain’s ability to constantly learn, taking past experiences, and updating them with present information.  Adaptive learning is constantly updating memory network systems. Past emotionally-charged experiences often interfere with your updating process.  EMDR breaks through that interference and helps let go of the past and update your experiences to a healthier present perspective. EMDR uses a set of procedures to organize your negative and positive feelings, emotions, and thoughts, and then uses bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or alternating tapping and sounds, as the way to help you effectively work through those disturbing memories. EMDR is effective with PTSD symptoms, phobias, addictions and anger management issues. This dynamic therapy helps to relieve your trauma and enable you to get to your new normal.

Other trauma techniques are also available so your package of care will be tailored exclusively to you.
