Calgary Psychologist Clinic - EMDR Therapy

Our Calgary Psychologist Clinic has therapists that are experienced in providing EMDR therapy to treat a range of issues including Trauma and Anxiety. EMDR therapy is an approach to therapy that can help your brain become “unstuck” and be able to successfully process disturbing memories so they become less distressing and overwhelming. It is important to note that EMDR will not make anyone forget the adverse things that happened to them, but it can help make those memories and responses less intense and debilitating.

Everyone has experiences that change the ways we think about ourselves and the world, sometimes in a negative way. Some of these events can involve major traumas like experiencing violence or being the victim of a natural disaster, while others involve things like humiliation, shame, or other things that damage our self-worth. Sometimes, when we experience highly stressful or traumatic events, the memories, emotions, and beliefs associated with them get “stuck “or “locked” in our brains, so that when we are reminded of them, our bodies react as if we are still in danger.

EMDR focuses on processing past events, managing current triggers and their impacts, and addressing future challenges and goals. It involves 8 phases that entail : exploring your personal history and present circumstances to ensure EMDR is the right approach for you; identifying distressing materials you want to target, as well as the negative or self-limiting beliefs associated with it; identifying more positive or helpful beliefs to move toward; processing the distressing material using sets of bilateral eye movements; checking in, following up, and identifying on-going supports.
