Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing 

What is Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)?

Welcome to Evolve Therapy Group. We are proud to offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a highly effective and evidence-based approach for healing trauma, reducing distressing symptoms, and promoting emotional well-being. Our team of dedicated therapists is trained in EMDR and committed to helping individuals find healing, resilience, and personal growth.

What is EMDR?

EMDR is a psychotherapy approach that was developed to help individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences. It is based on the understanding that traumatic events can become “stuck” in the brain, leading to ongoing distress and negative beliefs about oneself. EMDR utilizes bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements, to help activate the brain’s natural healing processes and facilitate the reprocessing of traumatic memories.

How EMDR Works:

During an EMDR session, the therapist guides the individual through a series of bilateral stimulation, which may involve eye movements, taps, or sounds. This bilateral stimulation helps the individual access and process traumatic memories, allowing for the integration of distressing experiences and the development of more adaptive beliefs and perspectives. EMDR also incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to address negative thoughts and emotions associated with the trauma.

Conditions Treated with EMDR:

EMDR has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including:

– Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

– Childhood trauma and abuse
