Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and many other mental health problems. Research has shown it to be effective in helping clients to relieve many types of psychological stress.
Studies have consistently found that EMDR effectively decreases/eliminates the symptoms of post traumatic stress for the majority of clients. Clients often report improvement in other associated symptoms such as anxiety.
The American Psychiatric Association and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies designate EMDR as an effective treatment for post traumatic stress.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defence, the United Kingdom Department of Health, the Israeli National Council for Mental Health, and many other international health and governmental agencies have also identified EMDR as an effective form of treatment.
