You know those pesky intrusive memories that make you recoil?
Yes, those that even come up in your nightmares. The ones you try to cast aside or forget, but without success? When you recall the memories, the past events related to them feel as raw, vivid, and active as when they occurred.
Sometimes distressing feelings occur for no apparent reason, and you wonder why. Haunting memories can impact your life, relationships, and ability to feel happy. You want to be able to let go and leave the memories where they belong: in your past and not your present.
What can we do about long-standing, debilitating memories?
But regardless of how long ago something happened and regardless of how long memories and other symptoms have been there, it doesn’t need to be permanent. When we recognize that we are being held back in life, the question for each of us is “What do I do about it?”
What is EMDR?
EMDR is a brain-based therapy that can help you process through and heal recurring distressing memories. EMDR does this in a natural way – unique from any other counseling approach. It taps on the human brain’s natural healing ability and allows you to move on from your past and reclaim your freedom from it. It is extremely effective and empowering – and positive changes typically happen much quicker than talk therapy.
Steps to begin the healing journey toward freedom:
- Hold a free, confidential 20-minute phone consultation
- Gather information about the issue(s) and their impact on your life
- Discuss your goals and ideal outcome from the healing process
- Decide how EMDR may be a good fit for what you want to work on
- Address any questions you may have about EMDR and its process
- Schedule an initial intake visit
- Start EMDR
If you don’t make peace with your past it will keep showing up in your present.
