Overcome Trauma With EMDR therapy...Intensive Trauma Therapy
We are certified EMDR Therapists in Coquitlam, helping you to find your voice and take control over your emotional well-being.
Are you struggling with disturbing memories, nightmares and flashbacks? Do you feel ashamed of what happened and wonder if you are to blame?
When an individual is emotionally overwhelmed by a traumatic event, the brain cannot process information as it normally does, and the emotion becomes “stuck.” The act of remembering triggers a “fight or flight” response.
The resulting memories of sights, sounds, smells, thoughts, and emotions can feel as intense as when the traumatic event actually occurred.
Such upsetting memories can have a profoundly negative impact on the way an individual sees the world and relates to self as well as others.

What is EMDR?
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an alternative to traditional talk therapy that can provide rapid relief from stress and anxiety caused by overexertion, traumatic experiences, or disturbing life events.
It is a phased, scientifically validated psychotherapy approach based on the theory that present distress is generally due to disturbing events that have occurred in the past.
When an individual has unresolved memories about such traumas, they are unable to naturally process and integrate them within the central nervous system.
It doesn’t matter what you are struggling with: EMDR therapy in Coquitlam can help.
