Look forward instead of backward
EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a type of therapy that allows people to heal from pain and symptoms of distress in a quarter of the time it could take with regular talk therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Research has shown that healing from mental and emotional pain does not have to occur over a significant period of time, and that if we remove the mental block causing the pain, our bodies and minds can immediately begin to heal.
EMDR is focused on trauma and the way that we develop patterns based on our experiences. With EMDR, you will begin to understand the meaning of the pain that you hold and feel more confident in your ability to shake it and reframe it into something that feels more hopeful.
If you would like more specific information about what the process looks like, EMDRIA has a wonderful explanation of what it looks like to experience EMDR here: https://www.emdria.org/about-emdr-therapy/experiencing-emdr-therapy/
