If you were ever mistreated as a child;
neglected, ignored, hit or slapped or shaken, insulted, shamed, teased, bullied, used for sex, starved, taunted, called names, or exploited in any other way;
EMDR helps you break the cycle.
If you ever experienced religious abuse;
taught to fear Hell or judgment – taught to fear God, told you must be better to receive love or approval from God or your parents, told your gender was inferior or limited to certain roles, taught that Heaven was off limits to people who did not “believe,” or taught that your sexuality was sinful or something of which to be ashamed;
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing can help you get free.
If you grew up lonely and sad, but have trouble pinpointing why;
lost in your own thoughts, vaguely aware your parents were disappointed in you, having a sense of “It’s-My-Fault,” unable to follow instructions or do what other children could do, or having the feeling you were not wanted or celebrated as a newborn baby;
This therapy helps you resolve the old feelings – replacing them with new ones.
If your work makes you sick;
emotionally depleted, traumatized as a first responder or witness to suffering, ostracized or outcast, burned-out, bored, chronically overstressed, disrespected, blamed, micro-managed, underpaid, overworked, or prevented from being with your loved ones;
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing can help you find your way to something better.
If you experience symptoms that confuse your doctors;
chronic fatigue, mysterious pain, nausea in the absence of another illness, depression that refuses to lift, or chronic headaches;
EMDR can help you target the underlying sources of distress, resolve them, and help you take back your life.
It’s not a magic-bullet. It’s not a magic-wand. It’s not voo-doo. But this therapy boosts your body’s natural mechanisms for information processing and speeds the metabolism of old memories and experiences. It reconnects parts of your brain and nervous system that had lost their communication. It allows you to absorb new information that is positive and helpful. It helps people think more clearly, focus more specifically, and work more creatively. It calms and soothes and brings back a natural confidence that may have been lost before you can even remember.
This therapeutic process is a tool for you. If you have ever wondered what eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy is, please call me to discuss how this treatment can help you get your life back on track.
