EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an extensively researched therapy technique, which has been very successful in bringing quick and lasting relief for a variety of symptoms and issues. Repeated studies show that EMDR has been effective in treating people who have:
- Panic attacks
- Mood swings
- Performance anxiety
- Traumatic or disturbing memories
- Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
EMDR is similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Therefore, EMDR can be thought of as a physiologically-based therapy that helps you see things in new and less distressing ways.
