Treating anxiety disorders with EMDR
EMDR clears PTSD. It eradicates the anxiety that accompanies PTSD. How do you use it with anxiety that isn't pure PTSD? Whether trauma or biology started the anxiety disorder, by the time a client reaches your office, you have to treat both. Anxiety is an intensely physical experience, and the experience of an out-of-control body is traumatic.
