You may be experiencing anxiety, intrusive thoughts or memories about a situation that continue to invade your thinking. These symptoms can often be addressed through unique Trauma treatment methods that typically provide relief more rapidly.
EMDR therapy does not require talking in detail about the distressing issue or completing homework between sessions. EMDR therapy allows the brain to resume its natural healing process. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memory. See this intro video... youtu.be/Pkfln-ZtWeY
