Suffer less and live more
Tired of limited techniques that don’t focus on deeper level processes?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is here to specifically target trauma.
Bring your power back and be in charge of your life again.
Known for its powerful effect on PTSD and the ways in which PTSD manifest: anxiety, depression, etc., the mechanism of how EMDR works leads to powerful results that empower you again.
By not only focusing on cognitive processes and including the deep feelings associated with the challenge, it accesses the nervous system in a more direct way in a desire to ease the burden of the challenge on a deeper level.
Years of living with trauma and PTSD lead to a build-up in our system. EMDR is an incredible addition to your well-being.
While an excellent therapy for resolving trauma, EMDR targets stressors that end up a part of our physiological “fight, flight, or freeze” system.
Talk therapy is excellent, and somatic (body-based) EMDR makes for an incredible addition to help you resolve your PTSD and trauma in healthier ways.
How does EMDR work?
You are first told to think of a safe place to help you re-associate the experience you’re working with to be more neutral rather than the current stuck, stale place it remains.
As we prepare to target a specific event, I will use either my hands, offer you specialized units that provide vibrations, audio recordings, or any number of combinations of these to help guide you in reprocessing the negative feelings about the event in a way that’s safe and also works at a deeper level than most therapies.
You will always be in full control. It’s amazing what can happen during a session of EMDR!
At-home, bilateral recordings are available that utilize the same processes. So as you relax, you can think of your safe space again as you listen to the recordings. Your central nervous system calms down, and the calming peripheral nervous system comes in.
With time, practice, and repetition, PTSD from trauma becomes easier to manage.
While EMDR is not a cure, it demonstrates a remarkable ability to assist in vastly improving coping skills.
You can reprocess how triggers of trauma will affect you.
Literature has been extensive and continuous about the benefits of EMDR.
You’ll finally be able to have tools to allow you freedom from your trapped challenges you always thought would never leave!
“I had heard of EMDR, but wasn’t sure what it involved. I had heard there was research to support coping with traumatic events and PTSD, and I was skeptical since I had tried everything to cope and live a more free life. But along with talk therapy, EMDR has helped me cope with my emotions better than anything else I’ve tried.” ~Roger*
“I have PTSD symptoms that interfere with my life. I use medication and have had therapy. I heard about EMDR for trauma and decided to give it a try. In using EMDR for situations where I’m triggered (I use audio recordings while at home and other interesting ways to implement this in my daily routine), I found my responses dissipating in interesting ways. I have reclaimed my life from my past trauma!” ~Pam*
