Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
EMDR Therapy is an evidence-based treatment for trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). EMDR has brought relief to an estimated two million people of all ages. It is an effective treatment not only for trauma but also complex grief, phobias, addictions, anxiety disorders, and more.
When a person goes through the unfortunate experience of a traumatic event, certain changes happen in that person’s brain. The way your brain processes information becomes damaged. In general, the sounds, smells, images, and feelings of the trauma don’t seem to go away, but current events may get trigger them. EMDR Therapy has a direct effect on the way the brain processes information, allowing normal processing to resume.
After successful EMDR treatment you will no longer relive the event every time it is brought to mind. You will still remember what happened, but it will be a memory of the past. It no longer will feel like it is still occurring in the here and now. Many Life Care Wellness affiliated independent therapists have training in EMDR Therapy.
