EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is widely recognized as a powerfully effective practice that facilitates and augments clinical processes toward the most comprehensively healing outcome. As a therapy, it has been deeply studied for over thirty years making EMDR among the most successful healing therapy methods.
Our two NYC EMDR therapy offices are located in central, downtown neighborhoods, so your visits are convenient. We are always delighted to start talking with new people seeking help toward well-being that is long lasting and genuinely transforming. We are certified in the EMDR treatment method developed and taught by Francine Shapiro. This involves a detailed 8-step protocol that has demonstrated positive results with many tens of thousands of individuals over the course of nearly three decades.
Using EMDR, we offer transforming anxiety therapy for those suffering from chronic stress and related conditions in our city, or outside it. A full range of anxieties are addressed through eye movement therapy. Depression therapy, as well, is successfully treated through the this modality. For PTSD, our work has truly and profoundly helped many people. And further, addiction, phobias, relationships are successfully treated.
How does EMDR work? Eye movement therapy helps the mind in establishing connections, and to complete learning that — for whatever reason — it has not been able to do on its own or with other therapies. We find it to be very effective when it is used along with other treatment models such as Gestalt therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Serving all New York City, NYC.
Our offices create an environment of healing that begins this deep process. The therapist carefully helps a client remember images, and construct useful positive and negative cognitions that represent the images and memories. The client is then asked to identify places in his or her body where feelings or blocked energy may be stored. The therapist helps the client use these images, cognitions, and body sensations, along with bi-lateral stimulation, to help access other parts of his/her brain to make connections he/she has been unable to make before.
EMDR was discovered and developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro. It began in 1989 when she noticed the relationship between eye movements and brain activity. Dr. Shapiro has done extensive clinical research that demonstrates the effectiveness of EMDR.
