EMDR is a good treatment for general anxiety depression, trauma, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR changes the nature of traumatic memories and disturbing events that cause intense suffering. The memories are reprocessed or re-calibrated and allows one to use new evidence to reduce negative emotions. Using EMDR processing, the mind can heal from these experiences quickly and effectively. Gone are those intrusive thoughts, feelings, flashbacks, and nightmares.
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) is a longer-term and an integrative therapy that incorporates family systems therapy with the intra-psychic and spiritual parts of the person. IFS-Informed EMDR is an advance therapy for people experiencing couples trauma or attachment issues. It is for clients where EMDR did not work well in the past or for clients that need additional resources along with standard EMDR to access and repair memories.
