EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing)
is a form of psychotherapy that aims at alleviating symptoms and emotional distress related to traumatic events. EMDR addresses all possible concerns relating to any area of life which inhibits the person from achieving their goals. EMDR assimilates the fragments and alleviates the person from experiencing heightened emotions and intrusive thoughts associated with trauma. Memories are then experienced without the original intensity and therefore do not interfere with optimal functioning towards goals.
