Certain events can deeply affect our lives. Often we can process these experiences on our own. But if that does not work, memories of the events continue to have a negative effect. Often the memories keep coming back and we may respond with strong emotions, vivid images and physical reactions.
With EMDR it is possible to treat various psychological problems that are caused by painful experiences. These problems include avoidance behavior, gloominess, feelings of fear, shame, guilt or anger. Examples of such experiences are emotional neglect, experiences in the medical field, work-related events and other experiences of embarrassment, bullying or loss.
