REWIRE YOUR BRAIN WITH EMDR tHERAPY
Your emotional pain didn’t just show up one day. It’s didn’t come out of nowhere. Trauma, depression and anxiety don’t just go away.
You’ve been looking for a solution for a very long time. You tried everything – self-help books, therapy, medications, meditation. And when nothing worked – you continued doing the same.
It didn’t help. Have you ever stopped for a minute to think about why everything you’ve tried so far didn’t help?
Did you ever get to the source of your problems?
The problem with everything you’ve tried so far is that you focused on the surface. When you read a self-help book or fo to talk therapy, you use the rational part of your brain. It’s called the prefrontal cortex and it’s where your logic lives in the brain. This is where your language is being processed.
But it’s not where depression and anxiety live.
Your symptoms and their source live deep inside your brain, in an area called the limbic system. This where your emotions live, and reading self-help books will not help you to access this part of your brain.
TREAT THE SOURCE. NOT THE SYMPTOM.
Many people don’t know what to expect before starting EMDR therapy. In EMDR, your therapist will find the source of your problem. By targeting the whole brain – including the rational and the emotional parts, EMDR therapy will lead to a massive reorganization of neural networks in the brain. This rewiring is what often leads to a transformative insight – seeing the world in a completely different way.
But before all that, your EMDR therapist will help you prepare for your treatment.
