EMDR is an evidence based form of treatment that focuses on how your brain processes past information. Our brain takes past experiences and often becomes stuck and incapable of updating or processing new information.

EMDR focuses on the brain's inability to update new information and helps the brain reprocess new information that allows you to no longer be stuck. This can free you up to process habits, fears, phobias, and traumas and move forward.

EMDR is not hypnosis as you are conscious and awake the entire time and have complete control of the situation.

 

​EMDR uses bilateral stimulation, i.e., eye movements, alternative tapping, etc. as the catalyst to effectively reprocess past experiences with new and healthy beliefs. 

EMDR is highly effective in treating PTSD, phobias, trauma, and anxiety.
