Complex PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can develop after a series of traumatic events. Many people who struggle with complex trauma may benefit from working with an EMDR trauma therapist.

How Can EDRM Help Treat Complex PTSD?

EMDR focuses on particular memories and reprocess them while the patient experiences bilateral stimulation. Generally, this stimulation is done by following the therapist’s finger back and forth with their eyes.

During an EMDR session, the therapist has the patient access particular thoughts, memory or feeling for reprocessing. Over time, the client builds up a tolerance for holding onto a particular memory for longer over several sessions.

After resolving one memory, the therapist moves onto the next one and so on. Over time, the client begins to feel closure regarding the painful parts of their trauma.
