How do I know if I'm effected by a past trauma?
Symptoms can include: reliving the event; avoiding situations that remind you of the event; feeling numb; feeling keyed up; nightmares; feelings of shame, hopelessness or despair; difficulty controlling your emotions; problems with family or friends; impulsive or self-destructive behavior; changed beliefs or personality traits; and, physical symptoms for no reason you can think of (somatic complaints).
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy can help!
EMDR has been proven effective in treating trauma. It appears to assist in reprocessing traumatic information, resulting in a more adaptive perspective of the traumatic material. There is no need to talk in detail about the trauma, which may reactivate the fear. If you'd like to discuss possible EMDR Therapy, please call me, Kathy Ventry, today at 916-877-6388.
Brainspotting: Where you look affects how you feel!
Brainspotting, an offshoot of EMDR, locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Brainspotting (BSP) was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, PhD.
