I’m Clara Angel, Your Bilingual Psychotherapist in New York, Specializing in different cutting-edge modalities and one of my psychological tools for treatment is EMDR.
What is EMDR Therapy?
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR is evidence-based psychotherapeutic tool to assist healing of traumatic experiences and emotional distress that was caused by upsetting and traumatic life experiences.
EMDR rests on the theory that traumatic memories are housed in a dysfunctional manner within our memory mechanism and remain unprocessed. This method works through bilateral stimulation (right/left eye movement, tactile stimulation, or sound) which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain, releasing the emotional experiences “trapped” in the nervous system. EMDR assists the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind-body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself, allowing the reprocessing of emotional experience and heal the symptoms of trauma, phobias, and anxiety. Because EMDR has the power to relieve any type of emotional block or fear, it can also be used to enhance performance and reduce anxiety and stage fright.
What can you expect from EMDR sessions?
We will use eye movements and tapping techniques to bilateral simulate of the brain that will help to reprosses past traumatic memories.
