EMDR is an effective and science-backed therapeutic intervention that alleviates negative thoughts or memories by accessing existing information and introducing new information through specific procedural processing steps.

EMDR is grounded in psychological sciences with decades of robust research and scientific data. EMDR integrates elements from attachment, behavior, cognitive, mindfulness, and bio-informational processing.
