Your greatest strength is your ability to adapt and grow from adversity. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an exciting approach that taps into your brain's natural healing process of resilience and growth with some people seeing dramatic results within three sessions. PTSD treatment can be overwhelming and feel like the symptoms will never go away. EMDR treatment can rapidly speed up this process and increase post-traumatic growth (PTG).
Similar to when you have a splinter in your hand, the wound will not fully heal until the splinter is removed. Once the splinter is removed your body will heal itself. Conflicted, unprocessed memories and experiences are like splinters that cause continued suffering and prevent you from bouncing back and moving on with your life.
EMDR therapy activates this healing process and leads to rapid and lasting change. Unlike other modalities, EMDR not only releases emotional pain and suffering but also integrates a resilient mindset. You go from "I can't..." to "I can..."
EMDR therapy was initially used to treat post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), however, research has shown it to be an effective approach to address many other issues including anxiety, panic attacks, chronic pain, addiction, attachment issues, fears/phobias, depression, and even for performance enhancement.
