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.



  • Great tool

    By jdm@swm
    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.
  • Leaves a lot to be desired

    By Maridart
    NO instructions, info or any other guidance - you have to go to the website to figure out how to us it. The app will not run in the background so eats up a ton of battery. And is limited in it's adjustability. I suppose the good news is there is a LOT of room for improvement. In the mean time, Im stuck with this $10 piece of crap.
  • Better!

    By Roslnjhgddss
    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!
  • Tactile pulsers?

    By EMDR therapist
    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?
  • Very good app.

    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.
  • Love this app

    By ---dr k
    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!
  • GET THIS!!

    By Moraghan
    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.
  • No Instructions

    By SpiritSeeker2
    Seriously?! No instructions or guidance whatsoever. How is this supposed to help someone? AND you charge $10 for this?! To do that to anyone, particularly someone with PTSD who needs this, is pretty despicable.
  • No instructions

    By Sdhakjxnsj
    This app had no instructions how to use it. Also once you click on the ball it goes on and you can't pause or stop it. I wasted $10.00 on this and can't use it
  • Can't use way I want to.

    By Auntsansan
    Great app, but I can't use it the way I wanted to. Hoped to connect to TV in my office to use in session. App won't turn correct way on TV screen.
