EMDR Therapy at MindSol Wellness Center

At MindSol Wellness Center, we are proud to offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy as part of our comprehensive range of services. EMDR is a unique, evidence-based psychotherapy method that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences.

Our Approach and What to Expect

Our therapists are trained in EMDR, a technique that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain by helping the client’s brain to resume its natural healing process.

During the therapy session, the therapist will move his or her fingers back and forth in front of your face and ask you to follow these hand motions with your eyes. At the same time, the EMDR therapist will have you recall a disturbing event. This will include the emotions and body sensations that go along with it. Gradually, the therapist will guide you to shift your thoughts to more pleasant ones. Some therapists use alternatives to finger movements, such as hand or toe tapping or musical tones.

Who Can Benefit from EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy is beneficial for individuals who have experienced severe traumatic events in their lives, such as physical or sexual assault, war, disasters, or the sudden loss of a loved one. It’s also effective in treating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
