How EMDR can help you improve your business performance:

  • Stop procrastinating
  • Get past the last loss or a big loss.
  • Get over the time you let your team down.
  • Get past a review that keeps bothering you when you think about it.
  • Improve focus and concentration

In business there is a need for balance between mental focus, physical endurance and using emotions to regulate between the two.  EMDR helps improve focus and concentration by helping to put things behind you.  Your thinking can calm and settle down much more easily when emotions are desensitized.

If you get angry easily at coworkers, your boss or difficult situations, then there is a good chance that negatively charged emotions are getting in your way.  EMDR can help clear those out.

In addition, EMDR helps you deal with distractions that take away from your ability to focus and concentrate.  There are two types of distractions, internal and external.

Manage ‘internal’ distractions

Internal distractions are the type that go on inside your head.  Thinking too much, worry and getting down on yourself are a few examples.

EMDR helps stop internal distractions because it:

  • Releases the negative emotional patterns that feed into feeling bad;
  • Allows ‘letting go’ of past events without always thinking about them and having them bring you down;
  • Frees you up to allow you to be in the present moment of each event as it is experienced – making success more likely.
  • Teaches you how to deal with failure

It’s not about accepting failure, it’s about learning how to mange yourself when let-downs happen.
You have to learn to manage failure because it can become an internal distraction; for example, you start thinking about it all the time, or at just the wrong times.

Managing ‘Failure’ is an ‘internal’ distraction because it plays on your mind.

Manage ‘external’ distractions

People disturbing or interrupting:

  • Co-workers who ask questions and/or make too much noise are examples of external distractions.
  • EMDR helps manage external distractions because it helps you get perspective on what is important.
  • With EMDR you become desensitized to your own internal emotional ‘triggers’ and, in turn, become less likely to be triggered by others.
