The ultimate goal of therapy… it’s too hard a question. The words come to me like tranquility, like fulfillment, like realizing your potential

Luxury EMDR Therapy Marbella. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. An interactive psychotherapy technique, relieving stress and childhood trauma. Beneficial for PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorders and now being used to battle drug addiction, alcoholism, and mental health issues.
Luxury EMDR therapy in Marbella is a phased, focused approach to treating trauma and other symptoms by reconnecting the client safely with and measured the images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma and allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward adaptive resolution.
What does EMDR do to the brain?
EMDR therapy uses eye movements or other alternate hemisphere stimulation to remove the emotional charges of traumatic memories. Researchers believe the treatment activates mechanisms in the brain that help you process the memory and distressing emotions.
There are eight phases to EMDR therapy: history discovery and treatment planning, preparation, assessment, desensitization, installation, body scan, closure, and finally, reevaluation.
EMDR is psychotherapy for PTSD and Trauma. EMDR can help you process upsetting memories, thoughts, and feelings related to the trauma. By processing these experiences, you can get relief from PTSD symptoms.
Is EMDR a hoax, or is this a new therapy that can help?
Controlled studies show that EMDR produces more improvement than the absence of treatment, at least for alleviating the symptoms of civilian PTSD, such as those triggered by trauma. The evidence that pertains to EMDR’s efficacy for other anxiety disorders is promising but preliminary. We are witnessing fantastic results when working with alcoholics, addicts, and mental health clients.
Who should not use EMDR?
New Life Marbella doesn’t use EMDR to process trauma when a patient is actively abusively using alcohol, drugs, or something to help them feel less. We can’t effectively practice through the EMDR phases with someone who has yet to experience a safe, trusting relationship. We insist all our clients are detoxed fully before EMDR treatment.
Will EMDR make me cry?
All therapy helps a client to confront much unpleasant stuff circulating in their mind. EMDR works quicker in our experience. You will find yourself getting emotional over things that you thought didn’t bother you. You might cry or get pretty angry over some things that happened in your past.
So what can you, the client, do to begin to prepare for EMDR?
- Build a support system before starting therapy
- Exercise will help reduce all stress we strongly advise exercise every day
- Breathing techniques and meditation
- Write a gratitude journal
