EMDR Therapy in NYC to Help You Heal
EMDR, sometimes called eye movement therapy, is a research-backed trauma therapy that uses our understanding of neuroscience to change how our brain deals with traumatic memories and traumatic stress. It works by helping to reprocess traumatic memories to make them less emotionally intense and overwhelming.
As a result, your body, emotions, and brain can heal after years of feeling disconnected and distressed. This will help you function better in every area of your life.
How does EMDR work?
During EMDR therapy sessions, your therapist will use a combination of exercises to redirect your eye movement while you talk about your traumatic memories. When you combine this new eye movement with other techniques, you change how the two halves of your brain work together.
Trauma causes the signals between the different parts of your brain as well as your brain and body to stop working properly. EMDR trauma therapy helps rebalance these connections. As a result, your brain can deal with traumatic memories in a healthier and less stressful way.
How can EMDR psychotherapy help me?
EMDR Therapy can help you find relief from unwanted thoughts and feelings.
Research on EMDR shows it reduces negative trauma and PTSD symptoms like intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks. It also helps victims of trauma let go of past events that have been keeping them stuck. The feelings of powerlessness and distress change as your brain learns to soothe itself. When you think of a past traumatic event, you will be able to use new strategies to help your brain, body, and emotions feel grounded and centered.
EMDR also helps with anxiety and depression.
While originally developed as a treatment for PTSD and trauma, research on different uses of EMDR has shown it is an effective treatment for:
