EMDR Treatment:back


Have you been suffering from a traumatic event or a loss of a loved one that you just cannot come to terms with? Have you had any other traumatic experience that still fills you with a feeling of powerlessness, helplessness, a sense of shame or any other negative feeling ? Then EMDR could be a helpful treatment method for you.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing discovered by Francine Shapiro in 1987 is an excellent and effective approach to treat trauma, phobias, panic disorder and complex unresolved grief. This treatment desensitizes the negative event with all the emotions that have been locked in your nervous system. You will reprocess the entire experience and after treatment you will notice a remarkable change. You will find yourself thinking about the trauma in a different manner. The traumatic event will feel much more neutral, like a fact in your personal history. You will be able to handle the past without being overwhelmed by disturbing emotions. Clients describe the change as becoming free from a heavy burden and terrifying feelings are replaced with a new sense of acceptance and renewed energy to tackle life's challenges again.
