Who is helped by EMDR Therapy?
EMDR therapy helps a variety of populations including soldiers and civilians, children and adults, princes and commoners.
Wait. Did we just say princes?
For years EMDR therapy has been pigeon-holed as “the therapy that helps PTSD.” Recent news stories, however, along with a growing body of evidence-based research, support the idea that it can do just about anyone a world of good.
Case in point, in the recently debuted Apple TV+ docuseries “The Me You Don’t See” with executive producers, the Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry openly discusses how he has benefited from the practice of EMDR therapy. Media outlets have also taken notice and highlighted the therapy.
Recent news is not news to EMDR Therapy
Of course, these recent revelations are not new news to thousands of EMDR therapy practitioners worldwide, many of whom have used EMDR therapy in a broad variety of settings with a multitude of populations. EMDR therapy clinicians often discuss their discovery of EMDR therapy as a “breath of fresh air” or a “magic pill” for their work because they find themselves finally able to offer true healing to their clients in a relatively short time in comparison to traditional talk therapies. Whatever the idiomatic expression, EMDR therapy changes the landscape for both clinicians and clients alike.
