EMDR Therapy in Hong Kong

What is EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing, also called EMDR, is a type of exposure therapy that helps decrease the negative emotional charge from a traumatic event.

This type of trauma therapy was discovered by Francine Shapiro, US psychologist. This type of therapy allows you to rewire their brains and process trauma more effectively. This therapy is based on the adaptive information-processing model.

What to expect from EMDR Consultations?

Because EMDR requires adherence to a strict protocol, we offer packages of 6 and 12 sessions of 50 minutes each. The treatment makes extensive use of bilateral stimulation paired with distressing memories to change the beliefs surrounding that memory.

What can EMDR therapy treat?

EMDR trauma therapy is used in the treatment of:

  • Fears and phobias
  • trauma
  • post-traumatic stress disorder

Is EMDR Therapy Effective?

According to research, EMDR is as effective as trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy and different types of exposure therapy. According to one study, EMDR is more effective than SSRI medication (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors).

How Does EMDR Work during Consultations?

Your EMDR treatment comprises eight phases designed to rewire your brain. Your counsellor will walk you through each phase with selected EMDR exercises and help you process the negative memories.

What are the similarities between EMDR and Hypnosis?

Like hypnotherapy EMDR is a fast therapy. Both practices are very similar.

For example, an EMDR therapist will help a client ease into a trancelike state before recalling traumatic event.

Second the therapist will provide the hypnotic suggestion that the client can stay calm and retain control over the experience.

Third, the client is led to replace negative self-beliefs with a positive and empowering frame. Fourth, like in hypnosis, the clinician does not need to have a full account of the traumatic event. What matters is the client’s ability to process thoughts, feelings, and sensations.

What is the difference between EMDR and Hypnotherapy?

EMDR therapy requires eight phases while hypnosis can be administered in a few sessions.


According to Shapiro you may feel relief in six EMDR sessions.  This is in line with a 1970 study on hypnosis where 93% of clients experienced improvements through hypnotherapy with only 6 sessions.

EMDR can be done online with the help of a qualified EMDR therapist.

EMDR can help alleviate some mental health issues. One of the largest indications for EMDR therapy is trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The therapy allows a person to activate the brain bilaterally while recalling the negatively charged emotion.

During the session, a person might feel negative emotions like in any exposure therapy. After the session, a person might have nightmares or vivid dreams

EMDR stands for eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing.

Our mental health counsellors are trained and certified practitioners of this technique. They have successfully completed their EMDR certification. We invite you to check their credentials on their individual pages.

EMDR is suitable for children. It can even be used with children suffering from autism spectrum disorders

EMDR psychology postulates that negative thoughts and feelings stem from unprocessed memories. This hypothesis is also called the adaptive information-processing model.
