More on EMDR
Many of you may not have ever heard of EMDR. EMDR is an extensively researched and evidence-based method for helping people move through their past experiences and achieving a more positive present day life without the intrusive negative self-beliefs that often accompany these difficult experiences.
Research has shown that our brains cannot process
information correctly when a person is overstimulated,
troubled, in danger, or overwhelmed. The memory of
what happened becomes “stuck” in the neuropathways
of our brains leading to future triggers of the event,
negative self-beliefs, and misperceptions.
EMDR is the key to unlocking these stuck memories and
moving them into a fully processed memory of the event,
which carries less negative impact- in other words,
The memories are not forgotten but they are
in a sense cleared, leaving the individual to move in a
more positive direction.
Studies confirm the results of EMDR to be highly effective and enduring, even surpassing the effectiveness of some medications used to help alleviate symptoms such as anxiety and depression.
I would love to talk to you more about EMDR and what it can do for you. I encourage you to give me a call today to help find your meaning in change.
