EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy)
This therapy that can help you process trauma as well as any other negative experiences that have happened in your life. When something distressing, traumatic or significantly negative happens, this can overwhelm your system and cause a breakdown. If you think of the brain as a shipping warehouse, these experiences that are meant to go to different processing centers of the brain get stuck and start to pile up. This breakdown can lead to triggering intense emotional and physiological responses, leading to various symptoms and difficulties in daily life such as anxiety, depression, dissociation, and intense emotions. What EMDR does is process these experiences in such a way that they lose their painful intensity and become more of a neutral memory of the past.
This therapy is known for its ability to produce significant and lasting results in a relatively short period of time. This is done through identifying these negative events and using bilateral stimulation through sight, sound, or touch to sort through those memories.
