EMDR is an integrative therapy that helps people heal from traumatic events as well as, life disturbing experiences. EMDR has gotten worldwide attention for helping millions of people heal from PTSD caused from traumatic events, such as; rape, sexual abuse, auto accidents and combat. But EMDR can also help people who feel distress in their lives to heal and feel more whole after events that have been disturbing such as; divorce, life transitions, grief, anxiety and much more. EMDR has been successful with children and teenagers, as well as adults, and often helps an individual work through issues more quickly than traditional therapy alone.
When people are experiencing distress in their lives and can?t find a way to fix it on their own they end up coming in for EMDR therapy. Sometimes events happen in a person?s life and he/she struggles to find a way to integrate that incident. That event can become an unprocessed memory and get stored in the brain creating symptoms that are uncomfortable. Physical sensations, emotions, thoughts, and images associated with the event can get locked into the brain, and without treatment, may lead to distressing symptoms and behaviors.
EMDR is designed to help a person identify and process these stuck pieces so that the symptoms can decrease and one can feel more alive and less distressed. EMDR helps facilitate the activation of the brain?s inherent system to process and integrate the information that got stored or stuck. EMDR will not erase the memory; rather you will be able to remember the story without all the emotional charge that was distressing before the treatment.
