EMDR stands for eye movement desensitisation processing. EMDR therapy is a powerful psychotherapy technique which has been very effective in helping people deal with trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress and many other emotional problems. Until recently, these conditions were difficult and time-intensive to treat. EMDR therapy is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and that it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress.
EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation, right/left eye movement, or tactile stimulation, which activates both sides of the brain, and accesses emotional experiences that are frozen in the memory network. This assists the neurophysiological system in forging associations and links with the adaptive memory network to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself.
EMDR therapy is also useful for a whole range of clinical applications which include:
