Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

"Our clinical work with EMDR shows us that suffering can be transformed - not only into art but into life."

-Francine Shapiro

This amazing modality was discovered by Francine Shapiro to help people overcome traumas, phobias, anxiety, and other stress related issues. It is one of the most researched techniques because of the initial skepticism people had about its efficacy. The therapist uncovers the distressing cognitive belief which is causing discomfort and replaces it with a more positive belief. This is done by using an in-depth protocol, and asking the client to follow a light bar with their eyes back and forth. While the eyes are occupied by the light bar deep, emotional energy is released which is seen as stuck emotions. Usually long term issues can be eradicated in a few sessions. Our EMDR therapist has been using this technique since 1994.
