About EMDR – Scarlett Shockley
Do you ever feel like you cannot forget something, even if you really want to? Does it feel like your mind is listening to a CD that has a skip in it, and the thought keeps repeating itself? Then, EMDR might be for you.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of treatment that was initially developed for trauma survivors to work through their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms. I have found the EMDR can be used for a wide array of subjective traumas, as well as fears and phobias. I have utilized this technique to help people who have been abused, witnessed abuse, death/grief, etc. I am EMDR level II trained. Frequently, I tell my clients that EMDR can help them think through how they feel. It aligns your thoughts and feelings (eg: I know I am not responsible, but I feel responsible). Trauma is very subjective, people’s reaction to trauma can present itself as depression, anxiety, insomnia, addictions or poor self esteem.
