Trauma is when an event or situation happens in our life that goes beyond the normal stressors of everyday life. With people who are dealing with trauma it can often be assumed that the normal capacity to cope is exhausted. With this we want to be careful in our approach with people.
EMDR is a body based approach that uses Bilateral Stimulation and works with the Adaptive information Processing system.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Spiritual Unfolding
When we deal with trauma it is a careful process that we take in ensuring you are not opening up wounds that are going to retrigger and make you feel worse; however, counselling can often feel uncomfortable for people.
Therefore, the first thing we want to do when dealing with trauma is to ensure safety and stability before we start talking about anything difficult. We want to help you feel resourced emotionally before you process any difficult trauma in you life.
We may work on Breathing Techniques, Tapping, Visualization, reframing thoughts, and education around trauma and the brain.
One treatment that we can use for trauma is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a body based approach that uses Bilateral Stimulation and works with the Adaptive information Processing system.
