What is EMDR?


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an effective therapy method to help people recover from trauma or distressing life experiences – which includes PTSD, anxiety, depression and panic attacks.

EMDR therapy does not require talking deeply about the distressing experience or completing tasks between sessions. Instead, it focuses on altering the emotions, thoughts or behaviours that result from the distressing experience. This allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. EMDR helps in resolving unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. 

How can EMDR help?

EMDR is based on the notion that our minds have a natural ability to process whatever that is happening to us in a healthy and adaptive way. So when we experience a distressing situation, our brain’s natural processing and healing capacity can be overwhelmed. 

EMDR works by stimulating the brain to motivate it to process unprocessed or unhealed memories – leading to a natural restoration and adaptive solution, decreased emotional charge (Desensitization) and links to positive memory networks (Reprocessing).


Most research has shown that EMDR benefits people with PTSD as well as other trauma-related issues. 

However, therapists may also recommend this therapy for:

EMDR helps you address and work through distressing memories and emotions and resume normal, adaptive and healthy processing of these memories. 

Through EMDR, an experience that would previously trigger a negative response may no longer affect you the way it has before the treatment. Hence, distressing memories will likely become less upsetting. 

If you’ve experienced a traumatic experience but don’t want to talk about it, EMDR might be good for you to process those memories.
