Is EMDR Therapy Right for Me?

According to the EMDR International Association, EMDR can be used to address the following conditions:

Benefits of EMDR Counselling

  1. Effective for Trauma: EMDR is particularly effective for individuals who have experienced trauma. It’s designed to access and process traumatic memories to relieve emotional distress.
  2. Reduces Distress: EMDR therapy helps reduce distress directly and efficiently. It can help individuals change their reactions and emotional responses toward traumatic memories.
  3. Promotes Healing: EMDR can help individuals heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that result from disturbing life experiences. It does this by helping the brain process traumatic memories and make them less distressing.
  4. Non-Reliance on Talk Therapy or Medication: Unlike other forms of therapy, EMDR does not depend on extended talk therapy or medication. It’s a natural process that helps the brain heal and recover.
  5. Improves Self-Esteem: By processing traumatic experiences, EMDR can help enhance self-esteem and self-confidence, improving quality of life.
  6. Helps with a Range of Issues: While it’s most known for treating PTSD, EMDR can also help with other issues, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and panic attacks.
  7. Shorter Duration of Therapy: EMDR therapy can often achieve results more quickly than traditional talk therapy, meaning individuals may need fewer sessions to experience relief from their symptoms.

What is EMDR?

EMDR Vancouver 2

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an alternative to traditional talk therapy that can provide rapid relief from stress and anxiety caused by overexertion, traumatic experiences, or disturbing life events.

It is a phased, scientifically validated psychotherapy approach based on the theory that present distress is generally due to disturbing events that have occurred in the past.

When an individual has unresolved memories about such traumas, they are unable to naturally process and integrate them within the central nervous system.

It doesn’t matter what you are struggling with: EMDR therapy in Vancouver can help.
