Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Trauma creates change you don’t choose. Healing creates change you do choose.”
-Michelle Rosenthal 
What is EMDR therapy?

Negative life events can have a lasting impact, as our brains are not able to process them in a helpful way. This can have a direct impact on how we experience the world around us. EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation (side-to-side motion) which mimics what is naturally happening during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. The result of EMDR therapy is being able to process negative life experiences in a helpful way.  You won’t forget what has happened, but you will be able to live your life without distress attached to that memory.
