Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing
EMDR therapy is an evidence-based treatment to reduce the symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and heal the root cause of the symptoms. It is an incredibly effective and efficient way of treating not only PTSD but also anxiety, panic attacks, depression, & grief. It is also a powerful way to get unstuck from negative beliefs about yourself that are holding you back - for example: you could be free from the "I'm not good enough" stories your mind repeats on a loop.
EMDR is actually really weird at first, but it is so effective, we promise it's worth giving it a try.
EMDR uses the brain's natural method of processing memories and information (like in REM sleep) to reduce the intensity of a traumatic memory. Your brain is designed to recover and move past the past, but sometimes traumatic experiences happen that are so overwhelming they get stuck - so any little (or big) trigger can make your brain go right back into fight, flight, or freeze as if it's happening all over again. EMDR heals the root cause and gives you the freedom to move forward with a new sense of peace and understanding.
