Frequently Asked Questions

EMDR therapy, also known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy or rapid eye movement therapy, is a form of mental health care treatment. After a successful course of EMDR therapy, physiological arousal is decreased, negative beliefs are reformed, and emotional suffering is alleviated. In simple terms, your recovery from trauma or other upsetting life events is the ultimate aim of EMDR therapy.

So how does it work? In EMDR therapy, the patient is exposed to emotionally upsetting information in brief, successive doses while also concentrating on an outside stimulus. Directed eye movements by the therapist are the most frequently employed external stimulus, but many additional stimuli, such as hand tapping and audio stimulation, are frequently used. You can know more about EMDR sessions in your area by Googling “Find a EMDR therapist.”

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the condition for which eye movement therapy, aka EMDR therapy is most frequently used. The following conditions are also treated with it by mental healthcare professionals: Disorders of anxiety: Panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.

In the majority of clients who had eye movement desensitization and reprocessing or EMDR therapy treatment, they discovered a reduction in panic symptoms and anticipatory anxiety.

Although every person's response to EMDR therapy is unique, a typical session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. It can take anything from three to twelve sessions to fully rewire your brain and get to the root of a painful memory. Google “EMDR therapy near me” to get an idea about typical EMDR sessions and EMDR therapy costs in your area.
