How Can EMDR Be Used To Treat Grief?

Experiencing loss is inevitable. Due to the multi-aspect nature of our instinct to survive, our subconscious will not let us fully acknowledge that we too will certainly face the tragedy of losing a loved one. Death is a part of life. Every living thing will die someday, ourselves and our loved ones included. But knowing that does not make it any easier to accept.

Because time does not heal “all” wounds, EMDR therapy puts the healing back on track when clients feel stuck. EMDR therapy does not eliminate a person’s natural and appropriate response to grief and it won’t make you forget the memories of the deceased but instead it allows people to grieve with more of an inner peace. This type of therapy allows clients to go where they need to go in their healing process.
