Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday, and wishing a happy Mothers Day to all the mothers and mothers-to-be out there!
In these last few weeks, I have been using EMDR therapy more and more with several clients. In many cases, I have been shocked at just how fast memories, and the negative beliefs they learned from them, have been healed by EMDR therapy. In one case, the anxiety caused by one of the worst memories for a client that bothered him since grade school reduced in intensity from a 7 (on a 10 point scale) to a 2 in just a half hour of reprocessing! One week later, he reported his anxiety while recalling the thought to still be at a 2! Amazing! Our goal of course is to get that anxiety and emotional tension down to a zero when thinking about this memory, so we will continue working on this particular memory until that is the case.
It has been rewarding and exciting to witness the adaptive processing that takes place in front of my eyes! Insights and revelations that usually take weeks and months to achieve now take just a few processing sessions! This of course, sounds too good to be true, which as a responsible adult I usually stay away from things like that, but having received EMDR therapy myself, and seeing its effects on clients, I know that it is the real thing.
If you’ve never heard of EMDR therapy, I encourage you to do a little digging, and learn for yourself what it is all about, and how it can help you. EMDRIA is a great place to start.
As always, please dont hesitate to call or email with any questions, concerns, or to schedule a free 15 minute face to face consultation. You can also find me at the latest Meet’n’Greets!
Take care everybody!!
