The body wants to heal. We help clients to metabolize the trauma in their body with the use of EMDR therapy and other body-centered techniques.Quoted From: https://vancouveremdrtherapy.com/emdr-therapy-body/
"Adults with severe and persistent trauma histories often began life just trying to survive day to day while experiencing unthinkable abuse with no way to escape. At the same time they were surviving the abuse they also had to attach to the perpetrator or caregivers to get their basic needs met. This meant having to hold the pain back to focus on surviving while at the same time maintaining attachments to perpetrators. This dual process can cause a client to feel detached from themselves and others, feel numb, experience loss of time, have drastic shifts in behavior, feel like two different people, be able to ignore pain, have difficulty getting close to others and just functioning in life can be hard. There is a continuum of dissociation and symptoms in clients with trauma.I have advanced training in working with individuals from all ends of the continuum including mild forms of dissociation to DID (Disscoiative Identity Disorder). I have been trained in Ego State Therapy, Structural Dissociation, Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Somatic (body-centered) therapy. I integrate EMDR in my treatment of dissociation. I help clients to not just survive but to feel liberated from the past. This helps clients to be their best self. The person they were intended to be before the trauma."
