The Benefits of EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy might look complicated for those who aren’t familiar with the term, though it’s not. It is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and it’s done in eight phases, with each phase lasting anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes, as stated in the video. However, the results of this treatment approach are so transformative when dealing with anxiety and trauma, among other psychological problems. As such, these are the benefits of EMDR therapy:

First, EMDR therapy targets the root causes of psychological distress that are often deeply embedded in traumatic experiences. While you undergo all eight phases of the treatment plan, you will be empowered to achieve healing and resolution to such traumatic experiences.

Additionally, the therapy works to weed out cases of anxiety, depression, and other fatal mental health conditions.

Secondly, when you undergo EMDR therapy, you’re likely to walk out at the end of the eight sessions with an enhanced self-awareness. This is because as the treatment works, you’ll also improve personal relationships. Therefore, therapy works to improve both your intrinsic and extrinsic health, especially how you handle stressful situations.

Thirdly, EMDR therapy involves less homework. In other words, EMDR therapy doesn’t involve the tedious journaling that other types of therapy require. Instead, EMDR therapy only requires you to note down your thoughts and ideas that you’d wish to bring along to your next sessions, if and when such thoughts happen.

Most importantly, this treatment plan provides hope when you’ve tried every other form of therapy and your previous experiences won’t stop resurfacing. As a result, EMDR therapy offers a means to break free from the bonds of trauma, depression, and anxiety, paving the way for a healthy cognitive frame.
