Write your EMDR notes with Mentalyc

Session summaries are concise and well structured into 8 sections covering all crucial information.

Presenting issues or memories

In this section, the AI captures the specific problem that has brought the client into therapy, their behaviors stemming from that problem, and their symptoms and include the client's description of the issue, a summary of the trauma, or another event that is central to the issues.


The AI captures the details of the client’s description of their mental imagery related to the presenting issue in this section. This section typically includes the client’s description of the imagery, its intensity or vividness.

Negative cognition

This section captures the information about how the client is identifying the negative beliefs and distorted thinking patterns associated with the traumatic or distressing experience or memory from the session.

Positive cognition

In this section, the AI captures information about the positive beliefs and cognitions that the client is encouraged to focus on during the session and statements of self-affirmation and positive expectations for the future.

Validity of cognition

In this section, the AI assesses the session the accuracy (on a scale of 1-7; "1" indicating "completely false" and “7" equaling "completely true”) and usefulness of a client's thoughts, beliefs, and interpretations.


This section captures the emotions experienced by the client during the EMDR session: anger, fear, etc.

Subjective Unit of Disturbance (SUDs)

The AI captures the level of distress the client is experiencing in relation to a particular event, thought, or emotion. Enabling the therapist to use the client's self-reported rating of distress on a scale of 1 (no disturbance)-to-10 (the worst feeling ever experienced) to assess the effectiveness of the EMDR treatment and to track progress.
