EMDR is a useful therapeutic method that serves to alleviate discomfort and help people improve their growth potential, in the shortest possible time and with deep and lasting effects.


EMDR or Desensitization and Reprocessing by Eye Movements, is based on the Adaptive Information Processing model that considers that all people are capable, under the right conditions, of managing traumatic situations.


According to this model, memories are stored in interconnected neural networks, but in traumatic situations, the intense physiological reaction of stress and terror blocks the processing of event information and the information is fragmented in the nervous system. In this way thoughts, images, emotions and sensations related to the situation can be activated by internal and external stimuli and continue to influence our behavior and personality in the present.

EMDR is validated as a treatment for:

  • Post-traumatic symptoms
  • Phobias or panic attacks
  • Sexual abuse
  • Victims of catastrophes
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Complicated mourn
  • Anxiety disorders
  • depression
  • Acute stress
  • Self esteem
  • Negative body image
  • Family and couple dysfunctions
  • Addictions
  • Somatic problems
