EMDR can help people with a wide range of mental health conditions such as anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, substance abuse related disorders, complicated grief, dissociative disorders, chronic illness medical issues, and many other disorders that have a trauma component associated with them.
EMDR is a specialized therapy that requires specific certification and licensing. It should only be offered by properly trained and licensed mental health clinicians.
