Yes, very well: It most certainly does. It helps the person quickly identify and move through those things that are causing the anxiety on an ongoing basis. And, it doesn't take years, or even months, of therapy. In fact, this is a treatment that has received a lot of attention, and has a large amount of research behind it. Best to find someone who has been trained and certified in emdr. Avoid the knock-offs.
