Lynchburg EMDR therapists work gently and lovingly with you to revisit the feelings, negative thoughts and memories that surround the experience from the past that was traumatic. The therapist holds her fingers about 18 inches from your face and moves them back and forth. You then track the movements like watching a tennis match. As vivid memories arise during the session the counselor will process them with you by the movements. The result is that the painful feelings are exchanged for ones that are peaceful and loving.
