EMDR: The Breakthrough Therapy in Overcoming Anxiety, Stress and Trauma

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an empirically validated psychotherapy approach that medical personnel can employ to treat a number of psychological trauma and other negative life experiences.

In EMDR therapy, clinicians help individuals activate their own natural healing process. 

The Adaptive Information Processing model suggests that EMDR therapy facilitates the accessing and processing of adverse life experience to bring an adaptive resolution resulting in a reduction of the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

EMDR therapy is being employed to alleviate symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Everyday Stress, Panic Attacks, OCD, Phobias and PTSD.

One of the benefits of EMDR is that you don’t necessarily have to talk about painful memories, making the therapy particularly inviting for those who have trouble verbalizing their experiences or for whom those experiences remain too painful to talk about. Rather, using EMDR for anxiety can be a largely internal process during which you are compassionately and gently guided out of a place of anxiety toward one of safety and inner tranquility. This process can allow you to access parts of yourself that traditional talk therapy may not be able to reach.
