What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing)

Discover How EMDR Can Restore Your Emotional Health

If you’re feeling stuck with negative emotions or past experiences that continue to upset you, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) offers a way forward. Unlike traditional therapies that primarily use conversation to seek solutions, EMDR facilitates healing through a structured approach that helps the mind and body heal from psychological trauma. By activating both sides of the brain through eye movements or other bilateral stimulations, EMDR helps "unlock" and process stuck memories and/or emotions. This allows you to integrate these experiences properly and reduce their ongoing impact, essentially helping the brain to reset its emotional distress.


Why Choose EMDR?

EMDR therapy stands out because it doesn’t just aim to treat symptoms or manage distress. Instead, it gets to the root of the problem. While traditional talk therapy involves analyzing the causes of your distress and the feelings around them, EMDR therapy helps the brain to reprocess emotions, memories and beliefs itself, changing how it’s stored and thus reducing its negative effects. It’s particularly effective for those who find it hard to articulate their experiences or for whom talking about the past has not been enough.
