EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a type of therapy in which the therapist guides the patient through a series of eye movements while engaging with the patient’s thoughts and feelings. EMDR does not require the in-depth analysis or discussion of the distressing issue. Rather, it works to change the way the patient processes their thoughts, emotions, and memories. It is a safe, effective, and science-driven method for treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, and the other negative consequences of traumatic experiences.
