EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION + REPROCESSING
From October through December 2018, I am offering a series of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) sessions free of cost to interested clients. I am an insured Registered Clinical Counsellor training in EMDR, and I will be using these sessions to build up my experience base. If you are interested, please reach out through email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 604-907-1790.
EMDR— WHAT IS IT ?
If you have experienced a deeply distressing event and you weren’t able to fully process it at that time, you are likely experiencing the symptoms of trauma. You may find yourself going through the event over and over in your head, or experiencing anxiety, depression, sleep issues, substance misuse, or a host of other symptoms.
EMDR is an evidence-based treatment that is proven to help dramatically and quickly. Through a series of hour-long sessions, the client is prompted to bring up the event—and any other past events that might colour the situation—while also focusing on a stimulus that moves back and forth. This encourages the left and right brain to collaborate and do the work that needs to be done in order to process the event and file it away. Once the file is processed, the client is once again free to enjoy the fullness of the present moment, without being disturbed by breakthrough thoughts or disruptive emotional patterns.
