What is EMDR therapy?

The word takes its name from the initials of the phrase “EYE MOVEMENT DESENTIZATION and REPROCESSING” and means “SENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING BY EYE MOVEMENTS”.

Dr. With the discovery by F. SHAPIRO in 1987 that eye movements can reduce the severity of disturbing thoughts, “THERAPY IN THE FAST OF LIGHT” became widespread all over the world, as D. GRAND said, for wounds that time could not heal.

Psychological Trauma is negative life experiences that hurt us and that we can’t get rid of, sometimes as a result of accidents, natural disasters, losses, divorce, bankruptcy, violence, harassment, rape or mobbing, and sometimes as a result of being emotionally affected even though all these happen to others. . The feelings and thoughts of the trauma may cause us to lose our sleep, disturb our concentration, act aggressively or feel guilty despite the passage of time.

Sometimes we can overcome these through our close social environment, physical activities, positive mindset, worldview and beliefs. Sometimes, nothing will be the same as before, that old self that displays pleasant, enthusiastic and determined behaviors is sought, and it becomes difficult to live in the present moment. In short, the harmony of body, mind and breath is as if it is out of our control. At this point, EMDR therapy can come to our rescue.

That our brain consists of two parts, the emotions and creativity of the right side; We know that the left side controls cognitive thinking. Painful memories based on the past are stored in the right part of the brain, they remind us of themselves thanks to any stimulus, and they can hurt us as if we were living today. The EMDR Therapist lays the groundwork for the person to experience what these memories are, what triggers them today, and how to deal with potential challenges in the future. Thanks to bidirectional stimuli, the right and left brains begin to pass. Negative experiences are reprocessed, positive sources are regenerated, and even if the traumatic memory is remembered, danger signals are no longer playing in the brain. The person may even develop new functional behaviors against another possible trauma.
