Whether it be physical or psychological, trauma is an experience that can have both short-term and long-lasting and profound effects on an individual’s mental and physical health. If left untreated, these effects may have a negative impact on a person’s quality of life. Unresolved trauma can lead to a host of problems, including difficulty moving on with one’s life, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and substance abuse.1
Fortunately, there are effective treatments available that can help people recover from the effects of trauma. One such treatment is known as EMDR therapy. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy, is a type of therapy that uses bilateral stimulation to help people process and heal from trauma.2
Our team is standing by to address your questions. Your call is confidential and no obligation is required.
EMDR Therapy is a structured treatment that consists of eight phases. The therapist will work with the client during each phase to help them process their trauma. The therapist will also teach the client self-care skills and stress management techniques to help them cope with any distress that may arise during or after treatment.
A meta-analysis of 11 studies found that EMDR therapy was more effective than other trauma-focused therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).4
EMDR therapy is an effective treatment for PTSD. However, it is essential to find a qualified therapist who is experienced in treating your specific condition.
