EMDR Therapy 

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR Therapy: A deep-acting psychological treatment, known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), is employed to successfully overcome a range of emotional problems.

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was initially treated with EMDR. Additionally, problems driven by negative life experiences can be effectively addressed using this therapy. If depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, anger problems, or complex PTSD are being struggled with, EMDR can provide assistance.

Recommendations for EMDR therapy come from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the NHS. It is a form of talking therapy, although it differs in approach from other traditional styles. Rather than relying solely on conversation to bring about shifts, EMDR utilizes mental imagery and bilateral stimulation to access life experiences that are subconsciously stored and serve as the core of psychological problems. By accessing and reprocessing dysfunctional memories in an emotionally powerful manner, EMDR not only facilitates an objective shift in perspective but also allows changes in mindset to be experienced at both the emotional and physical levels.
