EMDR Therapy for Women of All Ages
We are accepting new clients for EMDR Therapy. Currently we are doing in person therapy, online video therapy and phone therapy.
The therapists at Colorado Women’s Center use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy as a form of treatment that focuses on healing the symptoms and distress from traumatic experiences.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a type of psychotherapy that is used to relieve psychological stress that is a result of disturbing life experiences. It is growing in popularity and is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which often occurs after experiences such as physical assault, rape, car accidents and military combat.
The methodology was initially created to treat trauma, however it is also used to treat a variety of mental health conditions such as: Addictions, Anxiety, Chronic pain, Depression, Eating disorder, Panic attacks, Panic disorder, Phobias, PTSD and Self-esteem issues. EMDR can be used on its own or together with other psychotherapy techniques and medications.
In an EMDR session the client will focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the intensity and emotion associated with the trauma memories.
EMDR allows the client to be exposed to the memories without having a strong psychological response as recalling distressing events is often less emotionally upsetting when attention is placed elsewhere.
At Colorado Women’s Center, we have found EMDR therapy to be very successful in helping our clients with trauma. Much like the body wants to heal from physical trauma, the mind wants to heal from psychological trauma. The key is to remove the barriers to this healing.
When the impact of trauma festers it can cause continued and intense suffering. Through the techniques of EMDR the psychological blockages are removed and the mind is able to heal. By unblocking the emotions, the brain can be reprogrammed which allows the fear and pain associated with the trauma to dissolve. Once the fear and the pain are released, a client is capable of gaining a new perspective on life, which improves self-esteem and confidence in self and others.
If you or your loved one is struggling with the effects of trauma, please know that there is a way to overcome it. There is a way to live life without the grip and control of negative memories. At Colorado Women’s Center, we can support you through the process of removing the obstacles that stand in your way of joy and fulfillment.
