Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) engages the brain’s natural desire to heal from past experiences, restoring the connection between your mind, body, and spirit to the present moment. It is an evidence-based therapeutic approach designed to address the psychological and emotional distress that can arise from unmanageable, overwhelming experiences, especially those linked to trauma. When faced with challenging experiences, the brain may struggle to efficiently process and store memories, resulting in undesirable emotional, behavioural, and cognitive outcomes. EMDR navigates the memory network, gently reintegrating information to facilitate resolution and alleviate the impact of unresolved life experiences. 

What to Expect in an EMDR Session

EMDR therapy focuses on unprocessed, distressing memories from past experiences that cause current discomfort. These memories, containing the original emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations, lead to problematic mental health concerns when activated. Unlike traditional therapies that focus on altering responses to an experience, EMDR changes the way distressing memories are stored in the brain, alleviating emotional distress and increasing overall  well-being. This approach to wellness follows a structured process incorporating bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, tapping, or audio tones, which consistently stimulate both hemispheres of the brain at an even, steady pace. This technique maintains dual attention on the present while processing unresolved experiences, desensitizing the emotional charge of the memories, promoting their adaptive integration, and fostering emotional healing.

Benefits to Experience from EMDR Therapy

EMDR can be beneficial for individuals managing  various concerns related to trauma and distressing life events. While notably effective in addressing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), its adaptable nature extends its value to fostering resolution and healing across diverse challenges. This therapeutic approach has shown efficacy in addressing anxiety, depression linked to past traumas, navigating grief and loss, and bolstering self-esteem. It is an approach to healing that offers many benefits:

  • Inner Strength: The experience of overcoming challenges allows you to develop and recognize your resilience, fostering a felt sense of courage, determination, and self-confidence.
  • Reduce Emotional Distress: Using the brain’s natural healing capacity, you can experience a shift towards a more manageable and adaptive emotional response, notably alleviating the intense discomfort experienced in unresolved memory networks.
  • Subconscious Healing: Becoming attuned to the subconscious mind allows for the accessing of memories, beliefs, and experiences influencing present thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. This process aims to reveal and release essential information for healing and resolution.
  • Meaningful Transformation: As emotional arousal decreases, a shift in the emotional landscape occurs, creating space for uplifting feelings like genuine happiness, contentment in life choices, and a sense of personal meaning.
  • Trauma Recovery: The reprocessing of unresolved emotional distress, facilitates the release of emotional, psychological, and physical impacts from overwhelming experiences, empowering you to move towards a state of balance and well-being.
EMDR therapy can be effectively delivered both online and in person. While the delivery method may differ, the personal gains experienced from EMDR therapy remain the same. The choice between online and in-person sessions ultimately depends on individual preferences and circumstances.
