Throughout life we may go through significant traumas or deeply disturbing events. Our brain can lock onto these experiences in an attempt to protect us, and so the images, feelings, emotions tied to those events become part of our daily experience, shaping how we view ourselves and the world.
EMDR is an evidenced-based, highly effective treatment that uses eye-movements or other bilateral stimulation to light up the brain allowing these traumatic or disturbing events to be unlocked and more positively integrated.
It is an empowering approach to healing, as it is your brain leading the healing process and you, the client, are the primary agent of change. To learn more, check out the introductory videos of EMDR on the Resource page.
