Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Activate your natural healing processes and reclaim your resilient nature
What is EMDR?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and is recommended for trauma treatment. Our brains have a nature way to recover from traumatic memories and events.
Sometimes this natural recovery process cannot be resolved without help. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain. For many clients, signs of trauma like those above will diminish or disappear once EMDR therapy is complete.
What is Trauma?
Experiencing or witnessing a frightening, dangerous, frightening or violent event can overwhelm our body's natural coping abilities. Exposure to death, injury, abuse, or sexual violence often causes trauma. Other common life events like job stress, divorce, or accidents can cause a trauma response as well. People respond to trauma in many ways.
Signs of Trauma
Depression, sadness or social isolation
Feeling the need to be hyper-aware or alert in case of danger
An exaggerated startle response, on edge
Increased irritability, sudden anger attacks
Feelings of shame, guilt or intense worry
A sense of numbness in life
Nightmares or flashbacks that relive the traumatic event
Avoiding situations that may be reminders of event
Difficulty functioning in daily life
Substance abuse or dependence
Why work with Ursula?
Ursula has been motivated to get trained in EMDR ever since she received the treatment for her own trauma. The fact that EMDR is so efficient and effective made her want to offer the service as a career.
