#90: Virtual EMDR with Jeff Tejcek

EMDR, or eye movement desensitization reprocessing, is a powerful tool for treating PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and various mental health disorders. Studies have shown that it can be more effective and works faster than CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), the mainstay treatment in therapy. A 2014 review of 24 studies concluded that EMDR could help relieve emotional distress after adverse experiences, work more quickly and effectively than trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and help ease somatic symptoms, like pain or muscle tension. The problem is that EMDR can be expensive and very difficult to access. That’s why I was so excited to talk to Jeff Tejcek if virtual EMDR. Jeff has created a program where everyone can do EMDR in the comfort of their own home anytime they want at a fraction of the cost. Jeff Tejcek founded the Virtual EMDR self-guided therapy program after his own experience with EMDR changed his life completely. Diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) stemming from childhood abuse and neglect, Jeff struggled with anxiety, uncontrollable emotions, and self-esteem issues. He set out to transform the traditional EMDR therapy process so that anyone could use EMDR’s life-transforming power regardless of their income or ability to access a therapist. Virtual EMDR eye movement therapy is a first-of-its-kind program that clients can use on their own and without the need for a therapist to be present. Starting with the simple goal of creating an online EMDR therapy program that might be able to help struggling people, he never dreamed he would make a career out of it, much less start an EMDR therapy company. Jeff’s strong vision for online EMDR therapy has since been successful beyond his wildest expectations, and the Virtual EMDR company now routinely provides thousands of EMDR sessions each month, more than any other organization in the world. Virtual EMDR’s programs are designed to change the lives of people struggling with PTSD and trauma, depression, addictions, anxiety, phobias, and grief and loss symptoms. Through his philanthropy work, Jeff has been able to provide completely free EMDR access to thousands of military veterans, law enforcement officers, first responders, and even front-line healthcare workers during the peak of the COVID 19 pandemic. Jeff is a husband, parent, American ex-patriot, and world traveller.
