The therapy is used to treat those that have experienced a situation that leaves them afraid, anxious or stressed to the point that it is causing serious problems within their lives.
This type of therapy is unique. It’s not like anything commonly used for mental disorders. However, that doesn’t mean the results are unique. They’re very useful and helpful in situations where traumatic experiences are hindering quality of life.

Following hand motions from the professional EMDR therapist, you’ll use your eyes to follow their fingers back and forth while they move in front of your face. While you follow the hand motions, the therapist will ask about emotional, traumatic and other type of events that have happened in the past. You will begin recalling them. Then, the professional will gear thoughts around happy, positive ones that do not include the past trauma.
