What is EMDR counseling? EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This form of therapy is used to relieve psychological stress and is effective in treating PTSD. How does it work? During a session, a therapist has a client relive their traumatic event while simultaneously directing the client’s eye movements. The eye movement serve as a distraction, which lessens the emotional response to reliving these events. Over time, this treatment can reduce the harmful, frightening effects of recurrent flashbacks.
