EMDR - Effective Trauma Therapy

Evidence based EMDR is an effective way to process trauma and return to a healthy and fulfilling life.

 

When is EMDR appropriate?

When symptoms such as PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression and more interrupt our lives. These symptoms represent attempts to cope with distress, but often in maladaptive ways. EMDR is a proven method of processing trauma that has occurred in the past or present. You are in safe hands with an EMDRIA trained therapist who knows how to facilitate your trauma work. 

How does EMDR work?

EMDR uses bi-lateral stimulation (alternately stimulating left and right sides of the brain) in a way that is similar to REM sleep. This allows the brain to engage traumatic memory (including all our senses), and rework its understanding and integration of the events. You will build safety and coping strategies and then begin to process memories. The therapist helps you engage your own experiences in the present moment in a different, safe and effective manner.
