Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is generally used in the treatment of individuals suffering from PTSD or a severe unresolved trauma (such as assault, abuse, combat, or an accident). The objective of EMDR therapy is to process these disturbing events in order to reduce their lingering effects and allow clients to develop healthy coping mechanisms. EMDR follows an eight-step protocol that includes elements of several other therapy approaches (psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, experiential, and body-centered) and involves external stimulation using bilateral eye movements, tones or taps.

EMDR can help you move forward more quickly.
