What is EMDR Therapy And Who Is It For?

EMDR therapy, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, is a highly effective treatment for trauma and anxiety. It involves a structured approach that helps individuals process distressing memories and experiences. Through bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or taps, EMDR therapy helps reprocess traumatic memories, reducing their emotional impact and promoting healing. EMDR is used to treat individuals that struggle with:

  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Irritability
  • Relationship issues

EMDR is a technique that facilitates healing using the most powerful part of the human body, the brain. For a variety of reasons, sometimes the brain can get “stuck” on past disturbing events or traumas. When this happens, it can cause intense suffering for the individual.

Contrary to popular belief, it does not take the brain years to heal itself. Using EMDR therapy, the brain can re-process the event and heal itself just as the physical body can heal a wound.

Clients often see results in just ONE session!

While it is common for this treatment to be used on individuals that have experienced catastrophic and extremely traumatic events, it is also highly effective for any individual struggling with anxiety, depression, or panic attacks.

Even if you don’t feel like you have experienced a singular, traumatic event in your life, EMDR Therapy can still help with other issues affecting your daily living!

How Dos EMDR Therapy Work?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. When you think of Eye Movement, REM (rapid eye movement) sleep may come to mind. REM is the form of restorative sleep that processes our thoughts and helps us feel rested when we wake up.

While EMDR therapy is not exactly the same, it is similar in that it uses a set of rapid eye movements to process the negative thoughts or emotions into a place where they can be stored and removes the negative feelings you were having to that memory.

Scientific Research Has Proven the Effectiveness of EMDR Therapy

Many controlled studies over 30 years have investigated the effectiveness of EMDR therapy and they consistently found that it has effectively decreased and even eliminated the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and distress.

The American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and even the Department of Defense have agreed on the effectiveness of EMDR.

In fact, since the first studies in 1989, EMDR has become the most well-researched therapeutic modality and was even identified by the World Health Organization as the recommended method for treating PTSD.

Sarasota EMDR Therapy Client Testimonials

I was in therapy for almost 2 years before I realized that something just was not working. I found another therapist and did a few sessions and it just didn’t feel right either. EMDR with APM Counseling truly changed my life. It didn’t take a therapist telling me what I have to do. It took one guiding me on how to sort out my own life. The office was so welcoming and I felt comfortable from the first meeting. They put me in charge of my sessions and did exactly what they said from day 1. That I would know exactly what I am working on and why I am coming back. They pushed me to think about life without counseling instead of with it. And thanks to that, I can finally start a new life. 2020 is my year. The work I did here was worth it!
EMDR changed my life in ways I never expected. Was in therapy for 2 years before this and I can honestly say that I am done with what was keeping me stuck! Life changing!
