Do you need help with a traumatic experience that continues to affect you?
EMDR Therapy in Sydney is an effective way to process and finally overcome trauma states that are triggered in certain situations. But when a fear, phobia or an anxiety stress trigger comes up for us, it can very much affect our lives in a negative way. EMDR Therapy is a very easy process of three sessions where a trauma or fear can be desensitised. Providing relief from the triggers that continue to make us feel unsafe, uncomfortable and uneasy.
What is EMDR Therapy?
EMDR Therapy in Sydney is a therapy that is used with Hypnotherapy and NLP. EMDR Therapy is the process when a practitioner places the client into a light hypnotic trance, and ask’s the client to bring the feelings of anxiety, fears and stress to the surface. The therapist will know how to bring these states to the surface. Usually the person starts to feel the feeling of anxiety coming over them. The client is then asked to open their eyes and the practitioner then moves their index finger from left to right, up and down, making sure the clients eyes are following the movement of the index finger. This is processing the trauma using brain functions to desensitise the feeling states.
Why is EMDR Therapy so effective?
This therapy is used to desensitise a trauma that has managed to stay with a person for a long time. This is because the trauma has not been properly processed at the time of the trauma. Sometime when we are traumatised, we don’t always deal with the trauma as it happens, and we push the experience into the unconscious mind for a later date. Just because we push this trauma away, doesn’t been it’s gone. The untreated trauma then becomes a potential threat when a trigger is experienced. The unconscious mind creates defence mechanisms for your security and well being.
What does EMDR Therapy do?
EMDR Therapy finally allows the processing of a trauma within the unconscious mind. The fear or anxiety is purposefully there for us because it’s needing to keep us safe. What the process is doing is finally saying to the defence mechanisms, ‘You are safe NOW‘. When we are traumatised, we sometimes do not rectify the issue at that time. So in EMDR Therapy, you are finally resolving something that is unfinished. Think of a child being traumatised. The child sometimes does not know what happened because he/she may have been too young to understand the circumstance. When we revisit the feeling state as an adult, we can process the experience with an adult awareness, with all the wisdom and perspectives that are based in truth and calmness in the present moment.
With repetitious EMDR exercises, the fear starts to disappear and a feeling of relief is experienced. For more information about the process, please give us a call now for a FREE NO OBLIGATION 15 minute phone consultation on 0438 519 034.
