What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR Therapy, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy, is a highly effective and researched-based treatment approach for trauma and other psychological conditions. By engaging in bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or taps, EMDR helps the brain reprocess distressing memories and alleviates the associated emotional distress. It enables individuals to achieve resolution, develop adaptive coping mechanisms, and experience positive psychological growth.
