EMDR Therapy

Ready to Heal?

I had been doing therapy for many years and had been getting increasingly frustrated with my limited ability to help clients truly heal from their wounds. Then I heard Dr Francine Shapiro speak. She presented studies that very methodically and scientifically showed that bilateral stimulation to the brain helps to reduce trauma and its aftermath.  She worked with Viet Nam Vets who had severe PTSD. After being treated with EMDR therapy, they no longer had PTSD. A five year follow up still showed that they no longer suffered from PTSD. I have been doing EMDR therapy since 2000 and am constantly amazed by how it can help people. EMDR therapy appears to allow the brain to take the trauma that has not been stored effectively and allow it to hook up with adaptive information. Put in different terms, it helps people heal.

I have worked with people who have been depressed for years and after a few sessions of EMDR therapy, they are able to enjoy their lives. EMDR therapy is a very rapid therapy; it can help people in approximately half the time that typical talk therapy takes. It is a very complex therapy, so if you choose to seek out a clinician to do EMDR therapy, please be sure that you find one who is certified. I have been certified since 2001 and I am now working on becoming a consultant to help others become trained as well.
