EMDR Counseling Process

How does EMDR therapy work?

EMDR therapy is a process. Your therapist is trained to guide you safely through this process. You’ll begin by preparing you to work through the negative stuff in your life.

You need to feel ready to work through a negative memory. When you and your therapist decide you’re ready they’ll guide you through the next step of EMDR. This is where your body and mind are able to deal with the negative memories, emotions, and body sensations.

Once you’ve worked through the stuff that was “stuck” you can begin to build on your strengths. This part of the process teaches you how to feel good and experience living without the negative thoughts and feelings that were holding you back.

EMDR Therapy for Trauma

Understanding Trauma

What is trauma? It’s a word that’s often misunderstood. Every person has experienced something in life that can be considered traumatic.

Therapists will often talk about big “T” trauma, and little “t” trauma. This helps distinguish between a one time experience such as the death of someone close to you, and the smaller every day struggles of life.

Each type of psychological trauma can have a profoundly negative impact on your life. EMDR therapy can help you move past the pain of these experiences.
