EMDR utilizes the power of the subconscious mind to help you stop the compulsive, negative behavior, just like hypnotherapy does, but without long inductions. It also takes fewer sessions to achieve lasting results.
The focus of EMDR treatment is on replacing the negative behavior with consciously chosen, desired behavior. This is done by desensitizing the triggers that tend to lead to doing the negative behavior and strengthening the desired behavior in the subconscious mind. This means that all parts of your being are working toward the desired result-being addiction free. With EMDR the client learns simple tools to use between sessions to maximize success and minimize relapse.
