I am happy to announce that as of December 2019 I have completed my basic training in EMDR. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a very effective treatment for trauma. With EMDR I use a device consisting of headphones and handheld tappers for bilateral stimulation. The bilateral stimulation makes it easier to process and integrate trauma. The two halves of the brain communicate with each other when the trauma is processed, and the right brain, in which traumatic memories and feelings are stored, finally reaches the same page as the left brain, which has long been aware that the traumatic experience is over and we are are now safe.
I received my EMDR training from the Parnell Institute.
