PTSD from trauma can be hard to treat. EMDR is shown to be very effective.
EMDR therapy is an evidenced based (studied) therapy modality which is still gaining recognition
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
EMDR therapy is shown to be reliably effective with PTSD from trauma, depression, anxiety and more. This YouTube video is a testimonial about the effectiveness of EMDR and the impact it has on people’s lives.
Are you suffering from symptoms associated with PTSD from trauma or other distressing emotions or behaviors? People, just like you, suffering from these symptoms have found significant relief from EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
EMDR was discovered by Francine Shapiro in 1987 as a “chance discovery” while walking in the park one afternoon. While thinking of something disturbing, she realized that it no longer had the power it once did. Thinking about what happened, she realized she was moving her eyes quickly back and forth.
Since then, eye movements have been extensively studied and EMDR is now backed by research as an effective means of treatment for a variety of symptoms.
It allows the brain to reprocess memories that became “stuck” causing symptoms such as flashbacks and being startled by triggers that remind the person of the trauma.
Many people deal with symptoms of PTSD from trauma, depression, and anxiety for years with little to no relief. However, relief is within your reach! Don’t let these symptoms run your life any longer. Together with the right therapist, EMDR can help you heal from symptoms of PTSD, trauma, and more!
