I am a trained EMDR Therapist and use EMDR Therapy frequently in my practice due to the powerful positive outcomes that clients experience when I use it. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing and adverse life experiences. Clients frequently report a noticeable shift toward experiencing more peace, well-being, self-acceptance with a more adaptive way of responding to the people and the world around them.
The impact of trauma or adverse events that occurred in the past may be experienced in the present in some of the following ways:
· Anxiety, worry and fear
· Sleep difficulties
· Exaggerated startle response or jumpiness
· Difficulty in trusting others
· Anger, irritability and conflict with loved ones
· Problems in maintaining healthy and satisfying relationships
