Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)


EMDR is the abbreviation for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a therapy to treat a wide range of problems: post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, fears, phobias, dissociation, attachment disorders, pain, phantom pain, unprocessed mourning, low self-esteem, negative thoughts, a 'down' feeling, sleep problems, avoidance behavior, etc.


It is also efficient for specific issues such as being unable to set clear boundaries, anxiety when speaking or writing, being unable to cry, reacting badly and other sorts of anxiety. There is a great deal of scientific research into this form of therapy which proves that EMDR is effective. It is usually applied as part of a broader treatment plan.


This does not mean that everything can be treated with EMDR, but EMDR can often provide relief. The complete experience is powerful and the possibilities are much wider than previously thought. A good and safe EMDR treatment will most probably help you.
