Are you considering EMDR therapy?
Have you been to one or more therapists trying to sort out unresolved issues and traumas? Do you find talking about your pain and difficult memories does not help and may even make you feel worse? Do you feel trapped by past events or even defined by it?
It can be a challenge to live in the here and now when you feel anxious about what might happen or are ruminating about the past. You may find yourself using avoidance, risk-taking or even numbing behaviors just to find some relief. You want to live in the present, experiencing a range of healthy emotions and engaged in fulfilling relationships and activities.
The good news is you can get the help you need.
What is EMDR therapy?
EMDR is well established and researched treatment that is effective in releasing trauma and pain from both the body and the mind. Often the brain stores traumatic events in a way that can keep a person feeling like they are constantly reliving the events or emotions/reactions associated with the events(s). EMDR therapy helps to process the memories so they will be stored correctly and allow your body and brain to know you are no longer in danger.
