EMDR Therapy is an app designed to help clinicians treat patients who have been exposed to stressful situations and disturbing events. Based on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and BSDR (Bilateral sounds Desensitization and Reprocessing) the app provides both visual and aural stimulation that alternately stimulates the left and right hemisphere of the brain. The visuals and sounds of EMDR Therapy are designed to be pleasant and soothing to help counter disturbing emotions. The app has animated scenes for adults and for children. Experience the full richness of the sounds by using headphones. View the animations on a large screen by connecting your iPhone or iPad to a flat screen TV with an HDMI cable.
Good app but I lost my iPhoneX headphones, and bought AirPods... And the audio won’t play through them. Bummer. Wish I could use AirPods for the audio while using my tappers. Hope this app gets updated.
This app is awful. Do not waste your money! Difficult to use and very ineffective.
I have used this type of treatment for the last 7 years and am confident in how to use EMDR therapy as a patient . This is such a life changing app . However only people who are familiar with EMDR therapy should use this app . It is easy to use but should be used under the guidance of a Dr or Psychologist til you have been told that you can do it on your own .
As a clinician I feel this is a great tool to use with clients dealing with trauma. I like that it gives them more control over the BLS and allows me to focus on their safety.
I use this app all the time. The variety allows clients to feel like they have control over their treatment process. If you need instructions with it you shouldn’t be using it. It is for trained and experienced clinicians.
I was disappointed that the tactile pulsers do not work plugged directly into the phone. BUT, after contacting the company I tried again with the volume at max on the headphones and it works fine!!! It doesn't even need to be plugged into a television if you are not using the sound feature. I'm very happy with it!
I just got the tactile pulsers and it isn't working-they aren't vibrating when plugged in to the headphone port. Anybody have suggestions?
This is a very well put together EMDR app. It's the only app that works in all three BLS modes -- visual, tactile, audible. The backgrounds to the animations are distracting which is the primary drawback. It is very much hoped that a custom background or solid color background are offered in future editions. It works very well with tappers or vibration pods.
I have used this app for a few years but what I really love now is using the tappers with it! I ordered a set of tappers and just plug them in and switch over to vibration in settings. Clients love it and it is easy to keep with me!
Love love love this app!! I am an EMDR trained therapist and I adore this. For me personally it works better than the machines. I only wish I could figure out how to use the pulsers with it and where to buy them.
