I’m US licensed and certified in EMDR, as well as in Clinical Hypnotherapy and other mind/body approaches such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and TRM (Trauma Resiliency model), which are beneficial in creating a more balanced and resourceful approach to challenges which may be affecting us.
EMDR, Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing is a technique which utilizes structure protocols eye movement practices and other bilateral stimulation techniques, developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro in the late 1980's. It has been extensively studied and applied to cases of trauma, phobias, fears and other losses in a person's life. It is highly effective in processing memories, sensations, feelings, negative cognitions and responses to traumatic experiences which are at the core of much distress in a person's life. I am very excited as I will begin begin a Masters in EMDR in January 2020. This will add to the experiential and practical knowledge and application of this great tool.
In its decades long applications it has been found to create opportunities to access new perspectives and resolutions, bringing relief and transformation to the damaging effects of trauma and other life constricting issues. Emotional Freedom Technique and Trauma Resiliency Model are other effective 'bottom-up' mind/body psychotherapeutic tools that facilitate the processing of traumatic memories and symptomatology in an invitational and gentle experiential ways.
