E.M.D.R. Therapy. Does it Really Work?

E.M.D.R. (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) is just one of the many tools I use in my practice to more effectively help clients overcome issues such as traumatic events (both complex and single incident), negative thoughts, anxiety, and blocks preventing them from achieving their full potential, just to name a few.  I’ve been seeing some fairly dramatic results with some of my clients since incorporating this technique into my practice.

It incorporates a practice of good foundational talk and trauma therapy with relationship building with cognitive psychology and allows client’s to use the natural healing powers of the brain to rewire distressing events.

This article in Scientific American does a good job of explaining both how E.M.D.R. works and some of the research behind the technique.
