Have you been experiencing negative feelings for a significant amount of time, or are you experiencing negative feelings as the result of a crisis or traumatic event that don’t seem to pass on their own?

Do you feel that you have internal obstacles that prevent or inhibit you from advancing and breaking through, even though in theory you know what needs to be done?

Have you noticed that you exhibit patterns of behavior that hinder you in your personal or professional life that awareness alone does not prevent you from repeating?

Do you have unpleasant feelings, fears, or concerns that prevent you from speaking before an audience, cause you to feel uncomfortable being the center of attention, and block you from advancement in your personal or professional life?

The good news is that this condition is reversible.

Even better news? Through a novel form of psychotherapy called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), the rate of change is faster than ever thought possible.

For example, did you know:

• EMDR is a psychotherapeutic treatment that yields meaningful results within weeks in cases where other methods take months or years to go into effect? Many studies confirm the effectiveness and success of the method within just a few therapy sessions

• Millions of people have already successfully been treated by this method

InsideThe EMDR Revolutionyou will discover the important information you need when feeling distressed or inhibited, as a way to select the appropriate help.

Reading the personal stories contained within will teach you a lot about yourself—what affects you, what motivates you, and what limits you. You deserve a better life. EMDR can help you heal your life, one memory at a time, and live the life you were meant to live.


-There are only three evidence-based therapies for trauma: prolonged-exposure therapy (PE), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). EMDR was found to help in fewer sessions and does not require homework between sessions, making it the fastest evidence-based therapy there is. It is the classic treatment for veterans and those suffering the effects of traumatic events such as hurricanes and other forms of devastation.

-EMDR is a great supplement for personal-development. After recognizing your limiting beliefs, with EMDR you can reprocess them so you don’t need to keep fighting them, and you can free all your energy towards the future.

-We are mistakenly told that there is nothing we can do to change the past, so we need to ignore it and concentrate on the present. But this is not true. The past “hunts” us via our memories. With EMDR we can change the way our past is stored in our brain—and thus the way we are influenced by it—allowing us to change our life one memory at a time.

Read from the Book

And then, a young woman in a very serious state came to see me after a traumatic event. She was extremely overwhelmed and suffering so much, that I suggested she consider going to a psychiatrist in order to get anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs. I treated clients in this condition before, but it was always accompanied by pharmaceutical treatment. However, due to the client’s religious beliefs, she was afraid the psychiatric treatment would hurt her chances of a potential future match for an arranged marriage. She refused outright.I was consulting a more experienced therapist who told me that if this was the case, I should just be with her in her pain. I did not accept this advice. If it were me on the other side, I wouldn’t want someone that would just be with me in my pain, in the same manner that if I had aches in my back I wouldn’t want the M.D. to just be with me in my pain. I think that as therapists we should fight for more.During my quest for new ideas, I stumbled upon a book at the bookstore called, The Instinct to Heal: Curing Depression, Anxiety and Stress without Drugs and Talk Therapy, written by French psychiatrist, Dr. David Servan-Schreiber. I was immediately attracted to the title because I had never really connected professionally to the "Freudian" therapy method, and "without drugs" was exactly what the client wanted; I hurriedly rushed to buy and read it. Two chapters in the book were about a therapeutic method called EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It was a method I had never heard of; not in university and not at any phase of my mental health training in the psychiatric ward or mental health clinic. The things written there were so amazing to me that it literally caused my jaw to drop.
