Therapist Anastasia Pollock explained how a new type of therapy is helping patients find relief faster. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy that was developed by Francine Shapiro more than 25 years ago. Dr. Shapiro discovered that eye movements have a desensitizing effect on the nervous system. This therapeutic approach was initially developed to desensitize trauma but through the years, it has been found to be tremendously effective in treating many types of challenges including anxiety, phobias, depression, negative beliefs about oneself, anger problems, relationship problems, just to name a few.
