"Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an non-traditional, yet extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders."

Changing Your Experience
EMDR focuses on what is going on in the body (the somatic), the emotional experience and the cognition (negative self thoughts). Using EMDR we are able to resolve unwanted negative self thoughts and belief systems rooted in your past. We can reprocess those thoughts and transform them into positive thoughts. We can use this to address and change reactions from trauma, depression, anxiety... and much more.
Often people dismiss their adverse life experiences. We compare ourselves to others - often dismissing what has greatly impacted how we relate to ourselves and those around us. It all counts. You count.
