How does EMDR work?

When we are put in a situation where we feel unsafe or very emotionally upset the ability of the brain to process what's happening can be affected, causing painful moments to become stuck in our memory. When events in our daily life touch on a stuck memory the old feelings, thoughts and body sensations may resurface. EMDR appears to directly effect the way that the brain deals with stuck memories by pairing bi-lateral eye movements with therapist directed exploration of these stuck memories. Following successful EMDR treatment you will remember what happened in the past but no longer relive the old feelings, thoughts, and sensory experiences when revisiting the memory. Because EMDR is a structured treatment, we work through past and present concerns, then shift our focus to the present and the future. The end result is you'll feel better overall, and have confidence that you can reach your goals moving forward.
