How EMDR Works

EMDR Therapy is based on the premise that our minds can heal from psychological trauma just as our bodies recover from physical trauma. By using detailed protocols and procedures, EMDR Therapy helps clients activate their natural healing processes through guided eye movements, in conjunction with one-on-one therapy sessions, to work through and release the emotional distress tied to traumatic memories.
