Did you know that your body is smart enough to heal from anxiety, depression, traumas, phobias? If you've experienced things such as exposure to violence, abuse, harassments, discrimination, natural disasters, emotional neglect, moving a lot, living with parents who fought all the time, shame, divorce, bullying, grief, addiction, emotionally unavailable parents, anxious or critical parents, the body and the brain require the necessary environment to heal - KINDA LIKE when you heal from a physical wound - there are things your body requires to heal. Sometimes it's rest, or enough water, or medical assistance; and just like physical wounds, it all depends on the type of wound and its severity. Our bodies are so complex that they can process emotional healing on their own provided you have the right tools, support and environment. BUT when people do not have the right support to heal from emotional wounds, it can impact the body (hello anxiety, depression and panic attacks!) and what we believe about ourselves and the world (i.e. "I'm not enough" "No one can be trusted"). BUT HERE is the good news: EMDR utilizes the body's natural healing mechanism to help clients heal what they weren't able to to process on their own, even if it happened decades ago. It is so incredibly powerful and we are thankful to have the training and skills to provide it to our clients!
