TRAUMA

Traumatic events can have a dramatically negative impact on our lives.

Following a trauma, we can become:
 

  • anxious

  • irritable

  • angry

  • depressed

  • jumpy

  • withdrawn

  • avoidant

and we can be plagued by:

  • nightmares

  • flashbacks (re-experiencing the trauma in the present)

  • difficulty sleeping

  • poor concentration

  • emotional negativity

  • emotional numbness

  • guilt, shame, and a  sense of blame

 

The good news is that most traumas can be treated in a relatively short time. 

 

... as long as very specific treatment methods are used.

 

And one of the most successful of those methods is EMDR, a method that has grown and developed enormously since I first began to use it in 1994.

EMDR is quick and effective and the experience of EMDR is considerably less intrusive and much less unpleasant than any talking therapy.

Some of the more common traumas that I work with include:
 

  • muggings and armed robberies

  • rapes, date rapes, attempted rapes

  • terminations

  • Traumatic ends to relationships

  • motor vehicle accidents

  • violent assaults or the witnessing of extreme violence 

  • major surgery

  • finding that one has a severe illness 

  • near-death experiences 

  • the unexpected death of someone close

  • and many others
