Who Benefits from EMDR Therapy?
Deep down, you have a negative belief about yourself that causes strain in you relationships or daily life. Maybe you believe you aren’t good enough, lovable, or worthy. Maybe you believe you aren’t safe or that it’s always your fault. Logically you know this isn’t true, but deep inside it feels true to you. This belief is the thing getting in the way of growth, hope, and moving forward. You feel frustrated because you know all the techniques for positive thinking and thought reframing but you continue to feel stuck and hopeless.
If the above sounds familiar, you could benefit from EMDR Therapy. EMDR Therapy can help if something is holding you back but you are unsure of how to move forward. You’ve tried traditional talk therapy but continue to struggle with the same issues.
What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is a type of therapy that helps you heal from traumatic or upsetting life events. Trauma is specific to your experience and can include anything that is difficult for you to move past. EMDR can help you process single incidents of trauma or repeated trauma exposures.
The EMDR model theorizes that traumatic memories are not properly stored in the brain, creating an emotionally reactive response to anything that triggers the trauma. The purpose of EMDR is to reprocess and effectively store memories so that you can access them in a healthier and less triggering way. You can learn more about EMDR therapy and how it started by visiting the EMDR International Association website.
