EMDR is a treatment model that utilises bilateral stimulation – such as eye movements – to activate the brain in a way that processes and resolves ‘stuck’ traumatic memories. In a sense, EMDR ‘kick-starts’ the brain’s natural healing process and gets it going again.
Grounding is a set of strategies to help you get anchored in the present moment. As a trauma survivor, it is common to experience memories, flashbacks and nightmares that can make you feel like the trauma is happening all over again.
Some people feel apprehensive about doing therapy online, which is completely understandable. The great news is that with a few adjustments and clever use of technology, EMDR Therapy can be safely and effectively delivered online.
