Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective therapy for trauma, PTSD, anxiety and stress.

EMDR is a somatic therapy tool that helps reduce stress and improve confidence. Somatic therapy is an integrative approach to psychotherapy that emphasizes the mind-body connection.

The guiding principle behind EMDR is that current problems play themselves out in our bodies and minds because of unresolved issues from the past.

For example, you might struggle with setting boundaries if you had experiences in the past where your boundaries were not respected or welcome. As a result, your nervous system coded 'saying no' as a cue of danger that could result in pain, rejection and loss of love. As humans, we try to avoid pain, rejection and disconnection at all costs, so you'll probably find yourself fearful of setting boundaries, out of fear of the past repeating itself.

The goal in EMDR is to find these root memories contributing to your stress and reprogram them with bilateral stimulation, like eye movements or tapping, to help you shift the narrative around the past, find relief in the present and create a future on your terms.

The main reason I love using EMDR with the people I work with? Because the results are incredible.

But don't take my word for it, take hers.

Other benefits of EMDR and somatic therapy include:

  • Reduction of distressing symptoms related to trauma, such as flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety.
  • Resolution of traumatic memories and a decrease in their emotional intensity.
  • Enhanced mind/body connection and emotional intelligence
  • Development of more adaptive coping mechanisms and positive beliefs.
  • Improvement in self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Enhanced emotional regulation and stress management skills.
  • Potential improvements in other mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and phobias.
