EMDR

EMDREMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This form of therapy has more than 20 years of research and practice to support it.

EMDR may be for you if you have trouble trusting people, find yourself in one bad relationship or job after another or are struggling with painful memories. Have you had trouble with self-blame, shame or guilt? Do you wonder if your childhood or other times of the past are still affecting you negatively?

There is plenty of research indicating that EMDR is safe, fast and effective without the use of drugs or hypnosis.

EMDR can be effective with the following issues:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Past Abuse
  • Fear of flying
  • Phobias
  • Fear of driving
  • Stress and anxiety after divorce or break ups.

For many people who found that talk therapy alone didn’t give them the results they really wanted, EMDR has been the breakthrough therapy that solved their dilemma.

Sessions are relaxing and many people report feeling calm and peaceful after even the first session.
