EMDR Therapy

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a specialized form of therapy offered as part of our EMDR therapy Tulsa services.

This therapy focuses on addressing an individual's current difficulties that past memories and emotions may heavily influence. If you often experience feelings of unworthiness without understanding why, it is likely that past situations or emotions are overwhelming you. EMDR therapy can help address this common issue. Our brains create neural pathways that store memory sequences of similar experiences, and EMDR accesses these pathways through rapid eye movement. This allows the brain to reprocess the events along the pathway and helps the individual adapt to newer, updated information related to these memories.

What are the benefits?

What's the difference between Thermography and Mammogram?

EMDR Therapy offers several benefits for individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma. Some of the benefits include:

  • Resolution of past experiences: EMDR Therapy helps individuals process and resolve traumatic or overwhelming experiences from the past, allowing them to move forward with a healthier perspective and reduced emotional distress.
  • Relief from emotional burdens: Through reprocessing memories, EMDR Therapy often leads to a sense of resolution and relief from the associated emotions. Once the emotions have been addressed, they tend to subside, bringing a greater sense of peace and stability.
  • Reduction in symptoms: EMDR Therapy has shown effectiveness in reducing symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can alleviate the intensity of emotional distress and provide individuals with tools for managing their symptoms.
  • Increased self-awareness and personal growth: EMDR Therapy helps individuals better understand themselves, their emotions, and their past experiences. This self-awareness can pave the way for personal growth and foster a greater sense of empowerment and resilience.

Who’s a good candidate?

EMDR Therapy is suitable for individuals experiencing difficulties related to past memories and emotions that affect their current well-being. It can benefit those struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, phobias, and other emotional challenges. EMDR Therapy is particularly helpful for individuals who feel overwhelmed or paralyzed by their past and find it difficult to function in their day-to-day lives. It is important to work with a trained EMDR therapist who can assess if this therapy is suitable for your specific needs.
