EMDR & Clinical Hypnosis

What is EMDR?

A research-validated therapy known as EMDR —  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing — may promote healing for people shackled to their past.  EMDR helps resolve troubling emotions such as fear, self-doubt, guilt, or shame that are associated with traumatic events, both large and small.  These unsettling feelings may not be fully understood, yet they influence how we relate to others and perceive our lives.  EMDR therapy transforms “stuck” or unprocessed memories through “new learning,” resulting in healthier, more adaptive behaviors.

EMDR has the highest recommendation across most clinical practice guidelines, including,  The American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the U.K. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs/Dept. of DefenseThe Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the World Health Organization among many other national and international organizations recognize EMDR therapy as an effective treatment.

What is Clinical Hypnosis?

deeply relaxed to process and create positive change. 

Hypnotherapy is widely researched and has been used since the 18th century.

 The American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of hypnosis as an appropriate therapeutic technique in 1958. 

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) endorsed hypnosis in 1961.
