Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic approach designed to help individuals process distressing memories and alleviate the emotional burden associated with traumatic experiences. Developed by Francine Shapiro, EMDR integrates elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy with bilateral stimulation, often in the form of guided eye movements.

How Does EMDR Work?

During an EMDR session, clients recall distressing memories while simultaneously focusing on a back-and-forth movement or sound. This bilateral stimulation is believed to facilitate the brain's natural healing process, enabling individuals to reprocess traumatic memories and integrate them in a more adaptive way.


If you're seeking a therapeutic approach that addresses trauma, anxiety, or other emotional challenges, EMDR may be a valuable tool. I will conduct a thorough assessments to determine the appropriateness of EMDR for each client, ensuring personalized and effective care.


What Issues Can EMDR Address?

EMDR has been effective in treating a range of conditions, including:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Anxiety and Panic Disorders

  • Phobias

  • Depression

  • Grief and Loss

  • Performance Anxiety

What to Expect

EMDR typically involves eight phases, including history-taking, treatment planning, and target identification. Sessions focus on specific memories, using bilateral stimulation to process associated thoughts and emotions. The number of sessions varies based on individual needs, with progress regularly reviewed to ensure effectiive care.
