Symptom reduction

EMDR may help reduce symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, performance anxiety, OCD, complex trauma and more.

Will EMDR therapy help me heal from trauma?

EMDR therapy is based on the belief that our brains are naturally able to heal from trauma, just like our bodies do. When we experience a traumatic event, it can be difficult for our brains to process what happened. This can lead to us feeling stuck or like we’re reliving the trauma over and over again. EMDR therapy is thought to help “unstick” the stuck memories so our brains can process them and heal. Research has shown that this eye movement can help process the trauma and reduce its negative emotions.

Minimal talking is required for it to be effective.

It can help you process your past.

EMDR therapy can also help you process your past and make peace with it. Often, people get stuck in their trauma and cannot move on. So, this can be helpful if you have unresolved trauma.

Reduces negative thoughts and feelings.

EMDR therapy can help you identify and challenge negative thoughts and feelings associated with the trauma. This can help you better understand yourself and your past to release the blame and shame you may feel around specific events in your life.

It can help you to cope with current stressors.

EMDR therapy can also help you to cope with current stressors. This can be helpful if you are struggling to manage your day-to-day emotions or are currently experiencing anxiety or depression.

You may see results quickly.

Compared to other treatment options, EMDR therapy may produce results more quickly. This is because it directly targets the root of the problem. Although the goal is not to move through the sessions as quickly as possible, some people may find relief from their symptoms sooner than expected.

5 FAQs about online EMDR therapy

Online Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy stands as a transformative and effective cornerstone of mental health care, proudly offered at Makin Wellness. Renowned for its success in treating trauma, anxiety, and various mental health challenges, our online adaptation maintains the core principles of traditional EMDR while leveraging secure virtual platforms for convenience and accessibility.

The EMDR Process Unveiled: A Journey to Healing

  1. History and Treatment Planning: Your dedicated EMDR-trained therapist initiates the process with a comprehensive assessment, delving into your history to identify specific memories or experiences causing distress. This foundational step lays the groundwork for targeted therapeutic interventions.

  2. Preparation: Prior to delving into reprocessing, your therapist collaborates with you to build essential coping skills. This proactive approach ensures that you’re equipped to manage any overwhelming emotions that may surface during the sessions, fostering a sense of empowerment and readiness for the transformative journey ahead.

  3. Desensitization: The core of EMDR involves bilateral stimulation, traditionally facilitated through side-to-side eye movements. In the online setting, this crucial step is artfully replicated through guided visual stimuli or other methods, stimulating both sides of the brain. This innovative adaptation ensures that the essence of desensitization, a pivotal aspect of EMDR, is retained and optimized for the virtual environment.

  4. Installation: With the groundwork laid, positive beliefs are skillfully strengthened to replace negative thoughts associated with the targeted memories. This phase propels emotional healing, cultivating a positive mindset that paves the way for continued personal growth.

  5. Body Scan: The therapist guides you in a focused awareness of your body, addressing any residual tension or discomfort related to the targeted memories. This mindful exploration enhances the holistic nature of the EMDR process, fostering a deeper connection between mind and body.

  6. Closure: Each session concludes with a dedicated focus on self-care. Your therapist ensures you feel grounded and supported before transitioning back to your daily activities, emphasizing the importance of ongoing well-being.
