Laurie learned EMDR to assist clients suffering from traumatic experiences or disturbing life events. These result in the impairment of the personís innate ability to process and to integrate the experiences within the body and mind.

The EMDR therapeutic process can result in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, diminution of distress from the memory image or disturbing life event, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers for distress.

What is EMDR Therapy?

In the broadest sense, EMDR is intended to alleviate human suffering and assist individuals and society to fulfill their potential for development while minimizing risks of harm in its application. For the client, the aim of EMDR treatment is to achieve the most profound and comprehensive treatment effects in the shortest period of time, while maintaining client stability within a balanced family and social system.

EMDR is an approach to psychotherapy that supports the premise that most people have both an innate tendency to move toward health and wholeness, and the inner capacity to achieve it. It consists of a unique standardized set of procedures and clinical protocols which are combined with the unique element of dual attention/bilateral stimulation. This process appears to facilitate the resumption of normal information processing and integration. Intervention by the therapist is kept to the minimum that is necessary to keep that processing moving until resolution is reached. 

The EMDR process appears to facilitate the resumption of normal information processing and integration. This treatment approach can result in the alleviation of presenting symptoms, diminution of distress from the memory, improved view of the self, relief from bodily disturbance, and resolution of present and future anticipated triggers.
