If you’re not yet familiar with it, EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is an evidence-based therapy that is particularly helpful for treating psychological and physical symptoms stemming from adverse life experiences; traumas large and small.
EMDR is not just for healing from trauma. It is also used for performance enhancement, making difficult decisions, coping with hard changes or a shock, improving self-belief, resolving internal conflicts or complicated grief or avoidance problems, and more.
