Break Free from Trauma with Expert EMDR Therapy

EMDR uses sensory stimuli such as moving light, gently vibrating handheld paddles, or tones heard through headphones. You follow the stimuli with your eyes, which stimulates your brain while you recall your trauma.

You and your therapist will work once a week for eight weeks together. During the first phase of EMDR, you will begin to recall and explore your trauma, as well as help you gain insight into your history. Then, in phase two, you work on different techniques to handle your emotional pain. Next, during phases three to six, you and your therapist set targets and identify three aspects of your trauma:

  • A visual image connected to your trauma
  • A negative belief about yourself
  • Your related emotions and body sensations

Finally, in phases seven and eight, you work on closure and examining your progress.
