What is Group EMDR?

EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Studies show that by using EMDR Therapy, people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.

EMDR Group Therapy is an evidence-based format to offer the positive outcomes of EMDR in a safe and supported group setting.
