  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) boasts over 30 years of scientific evidence of its effectiveness (to treat almost anything). 

  • You can count on your treatment being: fast, effective, and safe.

  • The distress you experience is caused by past memories that were not properly stored in your brain.

  • You cannot simply “get over” your problem, or “think positively,” “toughen up,” or “try harder.” 

  • When you resolve these specific memories, your psychological blocks simply disappear.

  • EMDR is NOT talk therapy

  • EMDR is NOT about improving your self-awareness; it’s not about teaching you coping skills, or about teaching you stress-management.

  • EMDR is about eliminating your problem(s)—completely.

  • The benefits of EMDR last forever.

  • You only need to focus on the distress “one last time.” 

At Grigore Counselling & Associates, we only use EMDR to treat our clients. Why? Because it actually works. And it works FAST. 


EMDR is able to treat (and cure) psychological ailments in people in a fraction of the time that would be spent in traditional psychotherapy treatment approaches. What could take 2 - 5 years in talk therapy, could take 12- 15 hours or so with EMDR (12 is our average for completion of therapy of singular issues). Furthermore, results are not guaranteed with talk therapy. At Grigore Counselling, we want you to expect results - why? Because you will get them with us.

Spend 2 - 5 years in talk therapy, dumping tens of thousands of dollars with results not guaranteed? Or spend 12 - 15 hours over the course of just a few days with Robert and have guaranteed results? We think it's a no-brainer.

Well...we clearly support the use of EMDR for treating our clients - but who else supports the use of EMDR? 

WHO supports EMDR. (The World Health Organisation...see what we did there?)

The World Health Organisation recognizes both EMDR and CBT as evidence-based treatments that have been successful in treating trauma - and there are loads of studies supporting that EMDR heals trauma in a far shorter time period than CBT (a singular traumatic memory can be processed in 1-3 sessions using EMDR), with no homework required on the part of the client. We think this is great, because who likes to do homework right?

Other reputable supports for EMDR:

  • The American Psychological Association (Canada follows the APA guidelines)

  • The American Psychiatric Association

  • The Dutch National Steering Committee

  • The International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies

  • The UK National Guidelines for Clinical Excellence

  • The US Department of Veterans Affairs

  • The Australian Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health

  • The Australian Psychological Society

  • Israel National Council for Mental Health 

  • And more...

Short answer: probably.
