Trauma can be debilitating, leaving you feeling like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle of pain and suffering. But there is hope. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy can help you break free from the trauma that’s holding you back. Let’s take a look at what EMDR therapy is and how it can help you unlock your true potential.
What Is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy designed to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It works by helping individuals process traumatic memories by alternating between eye movements, tapping, or other forms of stimulation while focusing on the traumatic event. The goal is to reduce the intensity of distress associated with the memory so that it has less power over an individual’s life.
How Does EMDR Therapy Work?
EMDR therapy works by helping individuals reprocess memories associated with their trauma. During the reprocessing phase, individuals focus on their past experiences while following certain stimuli such as eye movements or taps with their hands. This helps to stimulate both sides of the brain, making it easier for individuals to access new insights about their past experiences and reframe them in a more helpful way. As this happens, individuals may experience unexpected emotions or memories that they had previously blocked out due to the trauma they experienced.
The Benefits of EMDR Therapy
The benefits of EMDR therapy are numerous and include reducing symptoms associated with PTSD such as flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, nightmares, anxiety, depression, arousal disorder symptoms, and more. It also helps people gain insight into how their past experiences have shaped their current relationships and beliefs about themselves so that they can make positive changes in their lives going forward. Additionally, EMDR therapy can provide individuals with a sense of control over their lives which can help them move forward in a healthy way after experiencing trauma in the past.
