How does EMDR therapy work?

EMDR Therapy is a type of therapy that aims to change maladaptive neural networks by connecting the traumatic memory with new information. The unpleasant thoughts and emotions are blended with new positive thoughts and emotions.

Our EMDR trauma therapists at Highland Springs, use a bar of lights that cover the width of a visual field and guide the patient through the intervention using bilateral stimulation and the person’s own rapid, rhythmic eye movements to dampen the power of emotionally charged memories of past trauma. The lights help the patient focus on a factor outside of the brain to break the cycle of recurring traumatic memories. Before and after each session, the client may be asked to rate their level of distress.

By using EMDR for a variety of different disorders, our EMDR trauma therapists and treatment specialists can help the patient process traumatic memories into more helpful thoughts and feelings. EMDR therapy sessions may not be a sufficient treatment when utilized alone, however, it decreases the time in treatment and symptom reduction often begins immediately.

Symptoms Reduced or Eliminated with EMDR Treatment

  • Avoidance of memory-provoking situations
  • Reliving-type nightmares
  • Daytime flashbacks
  • Anxiety & Fear

What to Expect after EMDR

One of the most common questions for patients is what can they expect following an EMDR therapy session? After an EMDR therapy session patients can expect:

  • Lower stress levels
