EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing

EMDR is a type of therapy used to alleviate the symptoms of trauma and some addictions. Although not a quick fix, it is a shorter term therapy (usually around 10 sessions) and can be quite helpful in clearing up trauma history. Jennifer is certified in doing EMDR and will use it whenever she thinks her clients will benefit. Her clients tell her they love it

EMDR for Trauma and PTSD

    EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a technique used to help alleviate unpleasant feelings and thoughts associated with trauma. It is a hands-on, practical, and research-based approach that helps people recover from trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and panic.

    I am level II trained in EMDR by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and am am a clinical member of EMDRIA, the international association for EMDR. I am also a member of the Australian EMDRAA (The EMDR Association of Australia)

      Possible symptoms of trauma and PTSD:

      • Re-experiencing of symptoms: intrusive memories, nightmares, flashbacks
      • Avoidance/Numbing Symptoms: efforts to avoid trauma related thoughts and feelings (alcohol or drug use), efforts to avoid trauma related activities (places and people), forgetting or dulling trauma related memories, feeling detached or being estranged from relationships, restricted range of emotions (not letting yourself, or unable to feel), sense of foreshortened future
      • Hyper-arousel symptoms: Insomnia, Irritability, difficulty concentrating, hyper-vigilance, exaggerated startle response

      EMDR is designated as an effective treatment by

      • American Psychiatric Association (APA)
      • World Health Organization (WHO)
      • U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense
      • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

      Using EMDR in Counselling and Psychotherapy

      Ways we may work together:

      • History taking: Overview of trauma event(s)
      • identification and utilization of internal positive resources
      • Identification of specific memory or event (target)
      • Desensitization and Reprocessing (bilateral eye movement or other)
      • Re-evaluation

      What we will never do in therapy:

      • Go in a direction that you are unwilling to go.  Trauma work is always guided by you, the client.  You have complete control over the speed and direction of any work we process.
