EMDR and Trauma Therapy

Do you keep thinking about your past..

When something awful happens, the event can stick with you for a long time. It is impossible to forget. The sights. The sounds. The experience. The memory.

The look on someone’s face. The tone of voice. The awful feeling you get when you think about that memory.

The memories sneak up on you. They keep coming up and you can’t seem to get rid of them.

When you think about it, it makes you upset, sad, and confused.

You start to view the world differently. Feeling less safe. Wondering whom you can trust and how you can make sure it does not happen again.

How trauma affects us…

Trauma can occur when something happens that overwhelms your ability to cope. There are single incident traumas- events like a break-up, an abusive relationship, betrayal, and many others.

Symptoms of trauma are usually layered and repeat themselves in different ways.

Memories get stored in the network in our brain that causes emotional, behavioral, reactions, and body sensations.

You may recognize some of them such as depression, anxiety, irritability, decreased concentration, flashbacks, and panic attacks.

If you are experiencing these things, you probably want nothing more than your life to return to normal.

This is why Niyama Center is here to help you

We use a somatic and attachment approach to EMDR and trauma here at Niyama Center. It is a quick and effective treatment to heal past memories that are causing a disturbance in your life.

We first teach you about trauma and how it affects you. You’ll learn how to identify and work with the triggers.

We will then go through a process of questions with you to help you understand your strengths, what is difficult for you to do, and what you do when you are in pain. This allows us to further understand your patterns to reduce the stress your body may feel. Using a mindfulness approach and setting you up with grounding tools before you start the real work. These grounding tools consist of meditations, breathing, and visualization exercises.

Going into the the disturbing memory will be easy…

We will combine that with bilateral stimulation such as “eye movements and tapping” activates the right and left sides of the brain to recall the traumatic memories.

Basically, we separate the negative feelings from the memories and allow your brain to reprocess them. Installing new positive feelings about the memories so you can feel better.

As a result, you will be able to access the memory without feeling overwhelmed or reacting as you once did.
