Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Using your brain’s natural resources to heal from traumas big and small.

EMDR is a evidence-based, clinician-led psychotherapy proven to effectively treat Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other psychiatric disorders, mental health issues, and somatic symptoms. In simple terms, EMDR harnesses the brain’s natural ability to process daily events during REM sleep, allowing us to consciously and proactively process traumatic memories and beliefs that have become stagnant and unresolved. With EMDR, we empower ourselves to overcome emotional obstacles and move towards healing and growth.

“We may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world.” – Gabor Mate

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between EMDR and hypnotherapy?

While hypnotherapy is a fully guided experience, EMDR takes the faulty belief inside of a memory and allows the client to process it with the therapist only overseeing the procedure for safety. If done correctly, this means the memory does not change, only the faulty self-belief the client takes from it.

Is EMDR dangerous?

A person should not go through EMDR without supervision. The process of a traumatic memory can be difficult and even damaging before it becomes healing. Be sure your EMDR therapist has had certified training and is working towards certification.

Are there any side effects to EMDR?

It is expected that the processing that starts in EMDR can continue at a much slower pace for up to 48 hours before the memory and associated new belief settles. Directly after EMDR, the clinician will ask the client to rest before leaving or driving. This is why EMDR sessions are longer than the traditional one-hour counseling sessions. For particularly traumatic memories, it is also recommended EMDR therapy is done at the end of the day as the continued processing can be distracting.

What if I have already done EMDR before with another therapist?

Like any therapy, it is best to stick to one therapist if at all possible. Sometimes, such as in the case of retirement, it is not possible. Be sure your new clinician knows your history with EMDR and what memories have been processed before continuing.

How do I prepare for EMDR?

Do not put too much thought into this. The clinician will guide you to the right memory to process regarding the belief you choose to work on. If you start thinking about it too much, it could lengthen the process by picking up on the wrong memory or memories to begin with. What the clinician is looking for is the first memory the belief comes from.

1.5 Hour Session – Monte – Cortez, Colorado

EMDR requires a 90 minute session to be sure of stopping in an appropriate spot without lasting difficulties. Be prepared to also rest for 15 to 30 minutes before driving if necessary.


More Details

Each 90 minute session  is used to assist the client in moving through the 8 step EMDR process for any one faulty belief and associated memory or memories. It is not expected that all 8 steps can be done in a single session. The first session will be to practice the necessary technique. The second, if the client is ready, will then go into using the technique to work through a memory. If that session is successful, the third session might be used to finish the processing. On average, the entire EMDR process takes six sessions for any one faulty belief and associated memory or memories.
