Why EMDR?


With a pulse, we will be bound to have anxiety and eustress. Life may become overwhelming. With the latest brain imaging technology, studies now show that overwhelming experiences like trauma, and the recalling of those experiences, occur in the right hemisphere of the brain and to the exclusion of the left hemisphere. Regular “talking therapy”, without EMDR uses language to process memories. Given that the left hemisphere becomes inactive when a traumatic memory is recalled, it is understandable that verbal therapies have not been able to resolve many issues. Part of what EMDR does is to provide a non-verbal body focus, which seems to stimulate inter-hemispheric activity.
