What is EMDR ?

EMDR is a psychotherapy technique developed by Francine Shapiro in the late 1980s. It is rooted in the idea that traumatic experiences can lead to emotional and psychological distress, and EMDR seeks to alleviate these symptoms by reprocessing the memories associated with trauma. Unlike traditional talk therapy, EMDR combines elements of cognitive therapy with bilateral stimulation techniques, such as eye movements, hand-tapping, or audio tones, to help clients process and reframe their traumatic memories. This process allows individuals to integrate the traumatic experiences in a healthier way, reducing the emotional distress and improving overall well-being.
