Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a structured form of therapy designed to help people recover from traumatic experiences. This type of therapy is based on the idea that the mind can heal from psychological trauma in much the same way that the body can recover from physical trauma.
Studies have shown that EMDR therapy can be a highly effective tool for treating trauma. Unlike other treatments which focus on emotions, EMDR therapy is focused on the memory, and is intended to change the way that the memory is stored in the brain, thus reducing and eliminating the problematic symptoms.

In the event of an emergency, it’s crucial to seek help as soon as possible. The Talk Suicide Helpline is available 24/7 to provide support and resources.
You can access this service by calling 1-833-456-4566 or texting 45645.
In the case of an immediate danger to yourself or others, calling 911 should be your first course of action.
During EMDR therapy, clients are encouraged to focus briefly on a traumatic memory while also experiencing bilateral stimulation such as eye movements. This stimulation is thought to reduce the vividness and emotional intensity of the traumatic memory.
EMDR therapy helps to remove the blocks that are preventing healing, so that you can start to move forward and live a happier life. During therapy, a trained clinician will use specific protocols and procedures to help activate your natural healing process.
Anyone over the age of 11 can be seen by our practitioners for EMDR Therapy.
EMDR is covered by most private insurance plans that include therapy coverage, meaning you may receive reimbursement.
Therapy is not covered by provincial healthcare insurance, and clients are responsible for paying at each session.
