Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Updated: Sep 9

What is EMDR?

One of the approach I use in my work is called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is an approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. It uses standardized protocols and your brain's innate abilities to reprocess material and change the influence of disturbing experiences. EMDR can significantly reduce emotional distress, relieve uncomfortable physical symptoms and transform negative beliefs so you can get past stuck points, restore healthy functioning, and engage in life in a more resilient and successful way.

EMDR can help with symptoms such as:


  • Persistent feeling of guilt (I did something wrong, it's my fault if this happened)

  • Fears, panic

  • Sense of emptiness, numbness

  • Sleep disturbances and nightmares

  • Grief that develops into debilitating depression

  • Overwhelming sadness

  • Flashbacks, and intrusive thoughts

  • Difficulty talking about the trauma, the event/memory/situation, and how it makes you feel
