Integrative Mental Health: EMDR Therapy

Date: 08-01-2024

EMDR Therapy is a powerful treatment for addressing trauma-related disorders, such as anxiety, depression and PTSD. We all need practical skills and strategies to help get us through difficult challenges. For example, learning about boundaries, communication and assertive skills. However, there are times when talk therapy alone is not enough. What do you do if underlying distressing memories won’t go away? What might be lurking in your subconscious mind?

EMDR Therapy started with only using eye movements to desensitize painful memories. It has since evolved into a comprehensive eight step process that does much more than simply dissolve the trauma. EMDR Therapy also replaces negative beliefs with helpful positive beliefs and helps you apply new information and understanding to potential challenges in the future.
