I can track patient progress and amend their treatment plan based upon real-time results to help patients build the skills they need to improve their mental wellness and progress towards their goals.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a psychotherapy approach designed to help individuals process and alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories and experiences.
During an EMDR session, the therapist guides the client through a series of bilateral stimulation techniques, which often involve rhythmic eye movements, auditory tones, or tapping. These techniques are believed to mimic the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep, facilitating the brain’s natural processing of traumatic memories.
EMDR aims to help individuals reprocess distressing memories in a way that reduces their emotional charge, allowing them to integrate the memories into their life narrative without triggering intense negative emotions. The therapy involves a structured eight-phase approach that includes history-taking, preparation, assessment, desensitization, installation, body scan, closure, and reevaluation.
Research suggests that EMDR can be effective in treating conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related disorders. It is believed that the bilateral stimulation helps to rewire the brain’s responses to traumatic memories, leading to decreased distress and symptoms associated with the trauma.
