EMDR Therapy is a powerful psychological treatment that researchers have shown to be effective in the treatment of post-traumatic stress (PTSD), as well as many other psychological conditions. The reason EMDR works is still the subject of much ongoing research and debate in the academic community, but the fact it does work has now been well demonstrated. EMDR is not a traditional exposure therapy, nor is it hypnosis. Some researchers believe it may mimic the memory processing characteristics of REM sleep, while others argue that the competing task demands of recalling a trauma memory and watching the therapist's fingers tricks the brain into releasing aspects of the memory. One or more sessions are required for the therapist to understand the nature of the problem and to decide whether EMDR Therapy is an appropriate Treatment. The therapist will also discuss EMDR Therapy and give you an opportunity to ask questions. The typical EMDR Therapy session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes. The type of problem, life circumstances, and the number of previous experiences will determine how many treatment sessions are necessary. EMDR allows a client to process an emotional experience that he/she cannot yet talk about, yet following an EMDR session find an ability to talk about it freely. Most importantly, it can eliminate stress surrounding the traumatic event, with the purpose of allowing new life in the once traumatized and emotionally difficult memory.
