EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

Many people ask “What is EMDR? Does it really work?” –  If you are one of those you will be surprised.

EMDR  is a therapeutic method used to desensitize and reprocess psychological trauma. This technique was created in 1987 by Dr. Francine Shapiro.

The EMDR among other things is based on bilateral brain stimulation using eye, sound or tactile stimuli.

The technique has been practiced for decades and is one of the treatments that has the largest scientific evidence. It  is widely recommended for the treatment of Post Traumatic Disorders and validated by the Health Department  in Northern Ireland, the Department of Defence in  United States and the organization NICE  in the UK.

The unlocking of emotions and reprocessing  occurs while the client focus on a memory or belief.  As he follow the instructions of the therapist, inter-related memories, images and experiences come out to the surface.  Sometimes there is even be an internal dialogue and more positive perceptions arise.  The process mitigates the negative emotional response until a neutralization is achieved,  this leads to a neutral or positive perception in respect of the original trauma or negative memory.

What is EMDR equipment?

The therapist can use  his hands, light bars, sound equipment or software to process the trauma. The  technique causes changes in the emotional responses, and sometimes you will  discover programs and subconscious beliefs that have been running in your mind and limiting you ability to progress or function at the level you desire.  It is important to work with a professional to guide you and help you to overcome any difficult or emotional moment.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual and on  the problem to be solved.
