Somethings are so deeply in us that sometimes we need to empty ourselves to find them.
- Panic attacks
- Low self-esteem
- Chronic pain
Child EMDR Therapy
Play therapy and EMDR are two powerful methods of therapy for children independent of each other and have proven to be helpful in assisting children who have experienced traumatic events in their lives. Combining the two dynamic methods of play therapy and EMDR offers children ways to process both experientially and cognitively according to their developmental ability. The therapeutic relationship provides a container for holding the child’s intense feelings.
EMDR is effective and well supported by research evidence for treating children with symptoms accompanying PTSD, attachment issues, dissociation, and self-regulation. It has also been effective in treating symptoms related to guilt, anger, depression, and anxiety, and can be used to boost emotional resources such as confidence and self-esteem.
