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 fairly dramatic results with some of my clients since incorporating this technique into my practice.

E.M.D.R. incorporates a good foundation of talk and trauma therapy protocols with relationship building and cognitive psychology It allows clients 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.
