Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) offered by Ron Paul and Inner Journey Counseling

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

When people go through Traumatic events, they can develop a set of beliefs about themselves (e.g. I am not safe, I am not lovable, It is my fault, etc.) that can cause low self esteem, anxiety and depression. Traumatic events can occur in a variety of ways such as being abused either as an adult or as a child (emotional, physical and or sexual), being in a car accident, experiencing a major illness or being in a war.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an experiential technique used to heal emotional wounds that have been inflicted by past trauma. It was originally done with eye movement however there are now a number of other ways to accomplish the desired result.

During EMDR we allow the pain from past traumatic events to be released and assist you in replacing the negative beliefs that were acquired from those traumas (e.g. I am not lovable) with positive beliefs (e.g. I deserve love). By releasing these negative beliefs, people can feel calmer, happier and move toward a more satisfying life.
