Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a psychotherapeutic technique that was originally designed to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It has expanded to treat a wide range of other problems, including childhood trauma, loss, depression, anxiety, abuse, self-esteem issues and addictions. It is also used to enhance performance by athletes, actors, managers and competitors in every walk of life.
EMDR Therapy is a systematic, psychotherapeutic tool involving bilateral sensory stimulation through eye movements, tapping or sounds that allows the client to utilize an internal processing mechanism that synthesizes and integrates the thoughts, memories, feelings and bodily sensations surrounding their challenge or traumatic experience. It stimulates the brain and nervous system to process and integrate disturbing memories and thought patterns in the most efficient manner. EMDR Therapy draws on and enhances the individual's innate ability to heal and resolve inner wounds and conflicts. Eileen also weaves Internal Family Systems Therapy into EMDR, which can assist the client to examine and re-negotiate with any obstacles getting in the way of healing within the psyche.
Eileen is a certified EMDR Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant. She currently offers both group and idividual consultation services.
Eileen is currently running three consultation groups. Two run monthly on a Tuesday, from 11am to 1pm, and the third meets on a Thursday from 4pm to 6pm. The cost of a group consultation is $125.00 (includes HST), with each consultee having a half hour to present their cases and raise questions. This interactional exercise is a rich source of learning more about the art of EMDR, and is also a requirement to become a Certified EMDR Therapist. Please contact Eileen if you are interested.
