289: Think of therapy as a shortcut to freedom from past hurts with Robert Grigore

Robert Grigore, author of You NEED Therapy. EMDR: Real People, With Real Problems, Getting Real Help

Robert Grigore and Bill Ringle discuss the process and possibilities that the Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) modality can offer relief from anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, and more in days instead of years for small business owners, celebrities, and others in demanding career roles who don’t have a lot of time to invest before experiencing results.

Top 3 Take-Aways from this Interview

  • Most people think that therapy needs to be a long, drawn-out process lasting several years, and even decades. EMDR success stories prove that results can come in days.
  • The way your brain encoded these experiences, leaving you with a negative belief about yourself (usually starts very early in childhood). Memories contain distressing elements of your experiences that were unprocessed at the time, and your brain thinks you need to hang on to it for survival purposes.
  • EMDR is NOT talk therapy. EMDR is about eliminating your problems – completely.
