What Is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR was developed in the late 1980’s to help people suffering from trauma and related symptoms. I studied and practiced EMDR for 12 years with many people and achieved good results. While I have incorporated parts of EMDR into my work, I now work with Brainspotting rather than EMDR.

The primary difference between the two is that EMDR utilizes rapid eye movement across the whole field of vision while Brainspotting holds a fixed eye position as emotional material is being processed. It is my observation and that of my clients that Brainspotting processes memories and emotions more deeply and completely.
