What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is a powerful short-term therapy, suitable for all ages, that is highly effective for a wide range of disorders including chronic pain, phobias, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders and poor self-image, stress, worry, stage fright, performance anxiety, recovery from sexual abuse and traumatic incidents. EMDR, as a psychotherapy approach, is guided by an information processing model and is composed of protocols and procedures which include the use of bilateral stimulation. Many people who have suffered for years from anxiety or distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, abuse or other traumatic events may find that they can now gain relief as a result of EMDR therapy.
