What our program offers,
What are the conditions EMDR Healing Program can treat?1) The program starts with a comprehensive evaluation of what is going on and what are the major factors that are causing the distress. Our team which includes a skilled Psychologist, a Psychiatrist and a psychotherapist can be involved and consulted and if needed participate in the treatment. If necessary appropriate adjunct psychotherapeutic modalities or medication intervention can be considered. Once other biological and emotional contributing factors were identified and addressed we move forward to EMDR Therapy phase. 2) We process the experiences that are causing you problems, and to include new ones that are needed for full health. “Processing” will set up a learning state that will allow experiences that are causing problems to be “digested” and stored appropriately in your brain. 3) This therapy will leave you with the emotions, understanding, and perspectives that lead to healthy, useful behaviors and interactions and your equilibrium will be restored.
