EMDR Trauma Therapy
Eye Movement, Desensitization, Reprocessing.
What’s EMDR about?
Have you ever had a moment when someone else said or did something and you instantly had a sudden rise of emotion that felt upsetting and overwhelming? Like a trigger has been fired, and you can’t control the intensity of your emotions.
Triggers are created from past situations that are registered as trauma and can range from minor to extreme incidents.
A trigger is when something from the past is activated and brought into the present moment with a force of emotion that doesn’t usually make sense in the current situation.
Big or small, EMDR works to alleviate triggers.
In childhood, trauma can develop from feeling ignored as a child, being overly criticized by a parent, or being severely abused. An alcoholic or addicted parent can also lead to trauma.
Traumatic events such as car accidents, rape, assault, and domestic violence often result in triggers as well.
EMDR works to put the past behind you.
Process feelings and memories attached to triggers from early childhood throughout adulthood with EMDR.
It can free you to enjoy the present without the intrusion of the past.
EMDR has been found to be helpful in treating other problems such as:
- Panic Attacks
- Complicated Grief
- Addiction Recovery
