About EMDR Therapy Treatment in Atlanta, GA
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing or EMDR is a breakthrough therapy due to its simplicity and the fact that it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress.
What is it? EMDR works to stimulate between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The process of moving our eyes back and forth calms down stress levels, clears and shifts negative beliefs that we have ingrained in our systems.
Effective Results: The movement from the right to left hemisphere in an EMDR session seems to effect the person so they no longer relive the trauma, the images, sounds, and feelings.
My clients describe post EMDR–-past negative -thoughts are like a movie in their mind that they are no longer a part of.
Could it help me? Our beliefs are like magnets and although we want to change them we end up in similar situations over and over. Until something helps us shift our mind and in a sense use a different magnet.
Example: If you heard over and over as a child that you were “not good enough” or were in a traumatic situation—you may have adapted that as a negative belief about yourself, which could possibly keep showing up in your life when triggered by an unrelated challenging event. The magnet “I am not good enough” in a sense is still working.
EMDR opens the opportunity for new pathways to create. Helps to extinguish the trauma effect and content which allows a new perspective to be in present time and to have a new perception of the situation without old habitual negative thoughts to control you.
EMDR gives the possibility for a new awareness and truth.
