What is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a method for treating disturbing

experiences that underlie many life issues. When a disturbing event occurs such as a car

accident, the loss of someone you love, a relational betrayal etc., it can get locked in the

nervous system of the body. The memory is there with the original images, sounds, thoughts

and feelings associated with it. EMDR accesses this information and provides an avenue for it

to be reprocessed in a way that takes the ‘charge’ out of the memory and allows the person to

integrate it into their life story in a healthier way. Through bilateral stimulation (eye

movements, tactile or auditory) of the brain, EMDR unlocks the nervous system and allows

the brain to process disturbing experiences.
