“Trauma is the result of an overwhelming sense of danger, powerlessness, and fear.
Healing is the result of feeling safe, empowered, and supported.”

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. EMDR therapy is based on the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, which posits that all of our experiences are stored in our brains in a neural network. When we experience a traumatic event, the information about that event is stored in our brains in a fragmented and unprocessed way. This can lead to symptoms such as flashbacks, nightmares, and emotional numbing.
EMDR therapy helps to process and integrate these traumatic memories so that they are no longer stored in a fragmented and unprocessed way. This can lead to a reduction in symptoms and an improvement in overall functioning.
EMDR therapy is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and grief. It is also being used to treat other conditions, such as addiction and chronic pain.
If you are interested in learning more about EMDR therapy, you can talk to your doctor or a mental health professional. You can also find more information on EMDR by visiting Aubrey's website.
