What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to help people heal from trauma. It is a research-supported treatment that has been shown to be effective in treating PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.

EMDR is based on several psychotherapy theories, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Unlike talk therapy, which can sometimes feel like you’re going over the same ground, again and again, EMDR therapy is a dynamic, active process. This process can help you to move forward in your life. EMDR uses bilateral stimulation, which can be rapid eye movements, taps, or tones, to help you to process and heal from traumatic events.

The Phases of EMDR Therapy

The EMDR Institute has identified eight phases of EMDR therapy. These are:

  1. History and treatment planning
  2. Preparation
  3. Assessment
  4. Desensitization
  5. Installation
  6. Body scan
  7. Closure
  8. Re-evaluation

During the first phase, you will meet with your therapist to discuss your history and treatment goals. This is an important time to get to know each other and to make sure that EMDR therapy is right for you.
In the second phase, your therapist will help you to prepare for your therapy sessions. This may involve learning some self-care techniques, such as relaxation exercises, to help you during the desensitization phase.

During the 3rd through 6th phase, your therapist will help you to identify the root causes of your difficulties. This is done through a series of sessions in which you will work with your therapist to process your memories and emotions.

The 7th phase, known as the body scan, is an important part of EMDR therapy. During this phase, you will focus on your body and your physical sensations. This can help you to release any remaining tension from the trauma.

The 8th and final phase is the re-evaluation phase. This is when you and your therapist will review your progress and discuss any changes that you have experienced. This is an important time to set new goals and to continue your healing journey.
