What is EMDR?


"Eyes Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing" was developed by the american clinical psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro. It is a technique which was initially used extremely effectively as trauma therapy and is still considered an established standard in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). 

How does EMDR work?

EMDR uses bilateral stimulation (the stimulation of both hemispheres of the brain) to stimulate processing activities in the brain, primarily through guided movements of the eyes, although other sensory channels can also be included.

After just a few sessions, clients can see significant improvements regarding their

thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.

The effectiveness of EMDR has been proven by numerous studies and is recognized by the World Health Organization.

Application Examples:

Trauma, PTSD


Dissociative disorders

Effects of stressful experiences

Intense grief after experiences of loss 

Consequences of attachment trauma

Specific phobias


Panic disorders

Sage fright

Chronic pain

Stressful ideas

Fears of the future 


EMDR can be seamlessly combined with established therapeutic approaches and is

also increasingly being used in training, consulting and coaching.
