EMDR is a therapeutic approach used in counseling. Often, we use it when traditional talk therapy doesn’t work at relieving the troubling symptoms you’re having. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (We know, it’s a mouth full) or EMDR for short is considered one of the top therapy approaches for addressing trauma. But, some say that trauma is really anything that causes you a lot of distress. Take a moment and think about something upsets you like your fear of flying, or that friend not suddenly not talking to you. That uncomfortable feeling is what distress feels like. That’s what many would consider to be trauma. Therefore, EMDR is really useful in treating things like anxiety, addiction, depression, performance issues, intimacy and sexual concerns, low self-esteem, and more.
