What is EMDR therapy?

EMDR therapy is a type of therapy that helps people heal from distressing experiences or trauma. It uses bilateral stimulation, like eye movements, tapping or auditory cues to help the brain process upsetting memories in a healthier way. EMDR therapy can reduce the emotional impact of past events on people's lives, and help people feel better. It's like giving the brain a chance to sort through and make sense of difficult memories, so they don't bother someone as much anymore. The past will no longer influence the choices we make in the present. With the guidance of a trained therapist, individuals can learn to cope with their emotions and move forward in their lives.
