Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Activate your natural healing processes and reclaim your resilient nature

What is EMDR?

A Happier, Healthier You

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?

Here For You

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.

EMDR might be right for you if you experience:

  • Depression, sadness or social isolation

  • Feeling the need to be hyper-aware or alert in case of danger

  • Increased irritability, sudden anger attacks

  • Feelings of shame, guilt or intense worry

  • A sense of numbness in life

Why work with Julia

Using the latest techniques

Sometimes problems go back farther than what seems like a 'today' problem and sometimes we aren't even aware of the roots of the problem. Sometimes we have experienced trauma but we don't even know it was trauma. Julia loves how EMDR can take care of the root of the problem so that things do not feel as heavy. She helps clients achieve positive thoughts, a relaxed body, and calm emotions.

Why work with Ursula?

Certified EMDR Therapist

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. 
In addition to basic training, she pursued certification. To qualify as a Certified EMDR Therapist requires one to have extensive and continuous training, to be supervised by a Certified Consultant, have a minimum number of years as a therapist and a minimum number of hours providing EMDR. In addition, one needs to be recommended by their colleagues.
