What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and is a psychotherapy approach that is primarily used to treat individuals who have experienced trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The core idea behind EMDR is that traumatic memories can become “stuck” and cause psychological distress. The therapy involves a structured eight-phase approach in which the therapist helps the individual process these distressing memories. One of the distinctive features of EMDR is the use of bilateral stimulation, which can include side-to-side eye movements, auditory tones, or taps. This bilateral stimulation is believed to facilitate the processing of traumatic memories and help individuals integrate them in a more adaptive way. EMDR is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Psychological Association (APA) as an effective treatment for PTSD, trauma-related symptoms, and other psychological issues including anxiety, depression and phobias.
