EMDR in English


Welcome to EMDR Therapy in Breda with Susan.

Curious about how EMDR works? I’m Susan, an EMDR therapist based in Breda, here to guide you through the process. EMDR therapy is designed to alleviate the intense emotional charge associated with specific events, memories, or thoughts, whether from the past or related to fears and phobias. Despite being a brief form of therapy, EMDR often requires multiple sessions, like four or five, but the exact number depends on multiple factors, so we will determine this together.

How EMDR Works

You might be wondering, “How does EMDR work?” In my therapy practice in Breda, you can explore EMDR, an abbreviation for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR mimics the rapid eye movement (REM) sleep phase using sounds (taps or clicks), therapist hand movements, or light motions that you follow with your eyes. Just as your body can heal physical wounds, EMDR helps your brain process distressing events. When a particular event has left a lasting emotional impact, EMDR aids in removing the emotional weight, leaving the memory more neutral.

What EMDR is

To understand what EMDR is and how it works, extensive scientific research has been conducted on its effectiveness. The results show that clients respond positively to EMDR. This short-term therapy form often requires only a limited number of sessions, especially for traumas resulting from a single impactful event, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities after just a few sessions.

During our initial meeting, we will assess together whether EMDR is a viable option for you. Following this introduction, you have the autonomy to decide whether you want to embark on a therapy journey.

Alternatively, you have the option to schedule your first EMDR session directly, bypassing the need for a preliminary introduction.

Which Issues Does EMDR Address?

EMDR is a brief therapeutic approach aimed at processing distressing events and experiences. Various distressing incidents can result in enduring difficulties and symptoms. Here are some examples:
