EMDR therapy is a highly researched, global psychotherapy method, and a leading-edge way to stimulate brain changes. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is well known as an effective PTSD (Post traumatic Stress Disorder) and trauma treatment. It is also is used in the treatment plans for many other symptoms and conditions as well. Whether you are repairing the damage of trauma, developing relationship skills, or enhancing work or sports performance, brain changes must occur. EMDR combines the best of everything we know about mental acuity with the quality connection of a compassionate, non-judgmental therapist.
Carol has more than a decade of experience with providing EMDR therapy to clients seeking deep change. Prior to using EMDR, she will evaluate your readiness for it. If there is chaos in your life, creating a safer foundation for the work is often necessary. Here is where you will benefit from Carol’s sharp assessment tools. Clients are often amazed by how quickly she can pinpoint core problem areas. Typically, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) will be introduced in this preparation phase to support early change. Clients find a few well-conceived cognitive behavioral changes can be life changing. You’ll find the preparation work can often be as powerful as EMDR!
NOTE: Although this treatment is generally used for individual therapy, sometimes it can be used in couples therapy.
EMDR Therapy is a Powerful Tool

EMDR also helps you develop peaceful conflict resolution skills for relationships, parenting, workplaces and other challenging situations. EMDR is a primary component of INNER COURAGE Therapy.
