Ask about EMDR therapy for Anxiety and Peak Performance Mindsets!
As a therapist Christy too has done her own work in counselling and EMDR therapy greatly impacted her life. As a result of the life she experienced from this modality, she was trained in EMDR so she can provide the same gift to her clients.
There are many ways to begin understanding EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). A basic outline of it is that generally in counselling sessions you talk. With EMDR therapy another component is added, it’s called Bilateral Stimulation. This stimulation may be a soft beat you listen to, or a visual you watch. As you listen to or watch this bilateral (side-to-side) stimulation, a natural process in the brain is activated. This activation allows you to process specific pieces of information that are causing you distress by moving it from one part of your brain to another, resulting in less or no distress with that specific memory, incident or emotion.
This gentle process can benefit many people. Some appreciate they come come to counselling with a vague notion of wanting to feel better, and EMDR can help us fine-tune what we want to work on together. Others like that with EMDR we also have the capacity to be very targeted in our time. So, if you have something specific you want to heal from, move past, overcome, grow-in or strengthen, EMDR can allow us to focus on that topic, and move towards that goal.
