Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy has been around for quite some time, but has recently been talked about a lot. EMDR is an extremely effective treatment for helping to process traumatic events. When we talk about traumatic events, we aren't just talking about what I would call Trauma with a capital "T" - almost everyone has experienced trauma at some point in their lives, whether it be a minor car accident, falling on the stage in front of everyone or dealing with false beliefs that may be holding you back. We all have a memory network, but sometimes those memories become stored in the wrong places in our brain, therefore popping up at inconvenient or inappropriate times. EMDR can help to move those memories to the appropriate place in your brain where they can be effectively managed. It's painless and you are conscious and fully aware of what's going on the entire time (some people are worried that it's like hypnosis - it's not, I promise!).
