What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing.


It is a form of psychological treatment that, when administered by an appropriately trained and experience therapist, can help people deal with

the symptoms and emotional distress (like anxiety, sleeplessness, panic attacks and depression) that are the result of traumatic life experiences.

EMDR Therapy might be useful to improve affective and cognitive symptoms and could be add-on treatment in chronic pain conditions. 

There are eight phases to EMDR therapy: initial history discovery and treatment planning, preparation, assessment, desensitization, installation, body scan, closure, and then reevaluation.



EMDR Therapy focus on:

  • THE PAST: Past disturbing memories and related events

  • THE PRESENT: Current situations that cause distress; present triggers.

  • THE FUTURE: Develops the skills and attitudes needed for positive future actions.
