Are you looking for EMDR therapy? Then seek contact with the GGZ

Many people find it difficult to ask for help, especially when it comes to mental problems or complaints. Some people feel that they have to solve all their problems themselves or that the symptoms will go away by themselves.

It is important to take your own symptoms seriously and recognize that sometimes you need help to reduce them. If these symptoms affect daily functioning, it is important not to walk around with them for too long.

This article will provide more information about what EMDR therapy is, what symptoms EMDR therapy can be used for, why it is important to seek out a mental health provider when you are looking for this form of therapy, and how to do so at mental health online.

What is EMDR therapy?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR therapy can be used for traumatic events. Single trauma is a one-time traumatic experience such as an accident, sexual abuse, an incident of violence or loss of a loved one, relationship or job. In addition, a person may suffer from multiple trauma where unpleasant traumatic events have occurred chronically such as long-term sexual abuse, abuse, neglect or war situations.

If a person continues to experience symptoms after one or more traumatic experiences, it is called post-traumatic stress disorder. Complaints that may accompany this include panic attacks, avoidance behaviors, re-experiences, nightmares, negative self-image and sleep problems.

How does EMDR therapy work?

In EMDR therapy, the working memory is overloaded by the therapist making hand movements or by a light moving back and forth that you have to follow with your eyes. It is also sometimes combined with a sound or simple arithmetic that you have to do.

You do this while trying to see the traumatic event in front of you in as much detail as possible, thus storing the event back in long-term memory with reduced emotional load. This is repeated until the emotional charge has subsided enough.

EMDR sessions can be emotionally demanding, so you may continue to experience fatigue, headaches or anxious feelings for several days.

Why EMDR therapy at GGZ online?

There are many providers in the field of EMDR therapy. If you want EMDR therapy, it is important to do it at a mental health facility, because BIG-registered psychologists work here. They have taken a special course to be allowed to give this therapy.

The therapists at GGZ online have extensive experience providing EMDR therapy online. This form of therapy works the same online as EMDR therapy offered face-to-face. The only difference is the method of overloading your working memory. In online therapy, this uses a little ball on the screen that goes back and forth that you may follow with your eyes. This instead of, say, the therapist’s fingers.

The therapists will give you a good detailed explanation of how the EMDR therapy will work and what the effects may be during the EMDR sessions, as well as after the sessions. They will guide you well in this.
