How Does EMDR Work?
After experiencing a trauma, information surrounding the incident can become locked in your brain. These painful memories may cause intrusive thoughts, sounds, and images to occur which can make you feel like you are re-living the event.
EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy) works to unlock these memories by bringing adaptive information to where the trauma is stored so that you are able to lead a fuller life.
Compared to traditional treatment methods, EMDR is able to provide you with results much more quickly. Some clients report relief in as few as 2 or 3 sessions.
