EMDR Therapy

What is EMDR Therapy?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. It is a treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How Effective is EMDR Therapy?

Multiple independent and controlled studies suggest that EMDR therapy is an effective treatment for PTSD. It’s even one of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ strongly recommended options to treat PTSD.

A 2012 study of 22 people found that EMDR therapy helped 77 percent of the individuals with psychotic disorder and PTSD. It found that their hallucinations, delusions, anxiety, and depression symptoms were significantly improved after treatment. The study also found that symptoms were not exacerbated during treatment.

EMDR therapy has proven to be effective in treating trauma and PTSD. It may also be able to help treat other mental conditions like anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

Some people may prefer this treatment to prescription medications, which can have unexpected side effects. Others may find that EMDR therapy strengthens the effectiveness of their medications.

What are the Benefits of EMDR Therapy?

People who are dealing with traumatic memories and those who have PTSD are thought to benefit the most from EMDR therapy.  

It’s thought to be particularly effective for those who struggle to talk about their past experiences.  

Although there is not sufficient research to prove its effectiveness in these areas, EMDR therapy is also being used to treat:

1) Depression
2) Anxiety
3) Panic Attacks
4) Eating Disorders
5) Addictions
