    Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy is a powerful way of healing old traumas held in your nervous system. If you think of your nervous system similar to your digestive system, it supports the digestion of old traumas, so that you can experience your life in the moment instead of through the lens of past events. Trauma causes a disruption of normal adaptive processing, which results in unprocessed information being held in memory networks.

 

      Trauma can be events and/or experiences of neglect or abuse that undermines your sense of self-worth, safety, ability to assume appropriate responsibility for yourself or others and/or limits your sense of control or choice. It can also include the experience of a thousand paper cuts without being able to identify one specific trauma.

 

      EMDR supports freedom of choice, being at home in your skin, and living in an more regulated state. This alchemical process takes our darkest wounds and transmutes them into gold. It requires a commitment to yourself and trusting the intelligence of your nervous system. This is a challenging process and if you dedicate yourself to the process, you will find a freedom on the other side of your pain and suffering. You are worth the investment. 

I   look   forward   to   supporting   your   healing   journey

  take   beautiful   care   of   yourself.

        in   Maitri,
