Here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center in Chattanooga, TN we have trained EMDR therapists. Together, they will work with you on experiential techniques. This type of therapy is designed to engage you in what is known as dual processing – using the right and left sides of your brain. During your sessions, you will bring up negative beliefs, feelings, physical sensations and images that are related to past traumatic events. The EMDR therapist will create additional stimuli by tracking their finger or something else across the eye movement desensitization tool. The goal is to help de-condition the trauma you went through and your responses to it.

Contact our team today if you want to learn more about trauma recovery/EMDR therapy.

How Does EMDR Therapy Help

Even though you may not currently be going through the traumatic experience, the memories, feelings and thoughts from the past trauma can still be very real. EMDR therapy helps to de-condition or less the symptoms from the trauma experience. Some ways the EMDR therapy helps include:

  • Targeting underlying memories, feelings and beliefs to relate them to current symptoms
  • Replacing the current negative effects you are having with positive ones
  • Reducing flashbacks
  • Reducing the sense of fear or feelings of being on edge
  • Lowering your anxiety levels
  • Becoming more aware of your triggers and stress responses
  • Learning to re-evaluate your beliefs
  • Finding new ways to self-soothe (many have used alcohol or drugs to soothe themselves, but this can change now that you are learning new techniques)
  • Having less intrusive thoughts
  • Boosting your confidence
  • Allowing you to participate more in your life

When you are in trauma recovery, there are multiple treatment methods that can help you to recover from past traumatic experiences. One of those options is EMDR therapy. Many people have benefited greatly from this therapy. As you can see here, the benefits you receive may be significant and can help you to now create the life you desire.
