What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a is a highly researched, evidence based psychotherapy that is used throughout the world. It is a distinctive form of psychotherapy that sets it apart from traditional talk-therapy. Unlike talk-therapy, which usually focuses on understanding and managing your feelings, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing aims to alter your thought patterns directly in order to transform how you feel for lasting change.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy helps you understand and overcome negative beliefs that have been holding you back in life. Through the use of eye movements, this highly effective form of psychotherapy “rewires” your brain, allowing you to let go of those feelings associated with negative core beliefs. It does not erase your memories, but rather desensitizes them, so they no longer have power over you. By identifying and processing the memories that have contributed to these beliefs, it helps to change how you feel and ultimately transform your life and achieve lasting healing.
