As a young child, I experienced extreme domestic abuse in my home. This trauma shattered my confidence and Self-esteem, which led to an eating disorder and drug use starting in my teens.
Virtual EMDR helped me come to terms with my childhood trauma. Now I know that I am in control. Nothing is wrong with me. I am whole, I can be happy.
For as long as I can remember, I told myself that “I am worthless. I am shameful. I am wrong and scary. I am too needy
After using Virtual EMDR, I now believe that ‘I am worthy of love. I am attractive. People love me and are thinking of me”. Thank you for helping me on my journey to self-love.
I started my Virtual EMDR session feeling shameful thoughts of incompetence and inadequacy. I ended the session laughing and laughing… until I was crying about how ridiculous I’ve been treating myself. Lots of self-love poured through me…
I’m looking forward to many more sessions of Virtual EMDR!
Are you living with low Self-Esteem?
Low self-esteem often stems from childhood experiences that follow someone through their life. It can also result from unhappy relationships and other traumatic episodes.
Low self-esteem is highly correlated to depression, school drop-out rates, sexual promiscuity, willingness to tolerate abusive relationships and situations. It can lead to a vicious cycle of failure, causing you to fall short of your full potential by being afraid to take risks or express your opinions and emotions.
Whatever the cause, taking steps to improve your self-esteem is critical. It has been shown to lead to positive impact on your relationships, career, finances, health, and other aspects of life.
You may be experiencing Self-Esteem issues if you have been experiencing these symptoms for a prolonged period of time:
Overly critical and negative about yourself and others
Place yourself in unhealthy situations (such as abusive relationships or high-risk behaviors) to try and gain the approval of others
Plan your life with high rigidity and get upset when things do not go as expected
Believe that people are generally untrustworthy, impolite and unkind

How does Virtual EMDR work on Self-Esteem?
EMDR can be used to treat low Self-Esteem by resolving any underlying mental and emotional issues that are related to these. This can be specific triggers, traumatic memories, or negative self-beliefs resulting from childhood trauma, accidents, loss, abuse, and other incidents.
EMDR helps to overcome low Self-Esteem by re-connecting (or “re-processing”) the neural associations in the brain associated with the negative beliefs and memories. Simulating the natural steps of memory processing, EMDR first acts to reduce (or “desensitize’) the unwanted emotions such as sadness, fear, and emotional pain, and then replace these with empowering emotions such as hope, confidence, and power.
In addition to standard EMDR protocol, Virtual EMDR also offers specialized programs for conditions frequently linked with Self-Esteem issues, including Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, PTSD & Trauma.
Let Virtual EMDR help you overcome low Self-Esteem – and reclaim your true power
Healing after an abusive relationship - without even knowing it
I started using Virtual EMDR to get over PTSD from an abusive relationship. At the same time, I also lost my job.
Virtual EMDR is so easy to use – and effective! Even though I didn’t understand what was happening, by just following this little dot on the screen, right away I began to heal.
I noticed an immediate sense of relief. My emotions were less intense when thinking of my traumatic experience.

FAQ about Virtual EMDR
I AM NEW TO EMDR. CAN BEGINNERS USE VIRTUAL EMDR?
Definitely! Virtual EMDR was designed for people with no prior experience of EMDR. The program is intuitive, easy-to-follow and comes with full instructional videos and examples.
If you need help getting started, Virtual EMDR offers affordable coaching sessions or find a therapist from our Therapist Network.
I AM CURRENTLY WORKING WITH A THERAPIST. CAN I USE VIRTUAL EMDR?

Virtual EMDR complements your therapist-guided sessions by giving you the power of “in the moment” healing when symptoms unexpectedly strike (which is seldom during your scheduled therapist session).
This power to address your symptoms when you need it MOST is one reason why Virtual EMDR has proven to be so effective for so many people.
IS EMDR SAFE TO DO ON MY OWN?
Despite what some therapists claim, the fact remains that thousands of people have successfully done EMDR on their own. Virtual EMDR delivers thousands of sessions every month.
Benefits of a self-guided program include: Taking total control over YOUR healing journey, deciding which issues you want to work on only when you are ready, setting the pace and frequency of your sessions, being able to focus 100% on your issues, and building self-esteem that you did it yourself.
However, self-guided programs are not for everyone. You are best placed to decide if this type of program is suitable for you. Please consult your doctor if you are unsure.
I SUFFER FROM MULTIPLE EMOTIONAL CONDITIONS. WILL VIRTUAL EMDR WORK FOR ME?
Yes, many people have used Virtual EMDR to treat complex and chronic emotional conditions. In fact, people often find that many conditions are linked and stem from a common root cause, such as childhood trauma.
By using Virtual EMDR to address the core issue (instead of just relieving the symptoms, as other treatments do), you can successfully address the real problem – and eliminate all these conditions at the same time!
