EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing and is a modern psychological approach thought to tap the same processes naturally used by the brain during REM sleep for information and emotional integration.
Through carefully designed intervention protocols, aimed at addressing the natural way of encoding memories, the process is facilitated by alternate bilateral stimulation, setting in motion an emotional and information “digesting” process of dysfunctionally coded past experiences.
It allows for a very effective and fast change and yields almost effortless and durable results. It can be used in an intensive way, shortening considerably the time span necessary in Psychology to obtain visible results. Clients can choose dealing with their issues and pursuing their personal goals in a more relaxed way during their stay in Portugal or in an intensive day-long investment, depending on their own interests.
At Oficina de Psicologia it is used both for corrective procedures and optimization processes, as an important part of our brain solutions.

No matter how high you’ve flown in your life, there is always a higher peak you could achieve. The reason why you aren’t there yet is usually because something is holding you back – the way you represent your personal identity, what you’ve learned to expect from yourself based on childhood learnt personal constructs, subconscious previous life lessons about what you think you deserve in life.
EMDR is a fantastic approach to very quickly deal with whatever is between you and the highest peak you can conquer.
