EMDR Counselling in Calgary

Putting the Past Behind

Trauma is a difficult experience that can have long-term effects on a person’s health and well-being. It can be caused by events such as accidents, violence, abuse or neglect, and it can cause intense feelings of fear, anxiety or sadness.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of therapy that was originally designed to treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and has been perfected by the skilled trauma clinicians and Orchestra Counselling Services. It works by helping individuals process the traumatic memories in a way that reduces their levels of distress.

EMDR Counselling in Calgary has been shown to be effective in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety disorders, panic attacks and other trauma-related problems. It is also useful in treating chronic pain, stress-related eating disorders and many other conditions.

With EMDR treatment therapy, yesterday is history but tomorrow is a gift.

Reclaim your innocence today.

The Studies

It’s time to unload that excess baggage of your past for good. Twenty-four randomized controlled trials support the positive effects of EMDR Counselling in Calgary in the treatment of emotional trauma and other adverse life experiences relevant to clinical practice. Seven of 10 studies reported EMDR therapy to be more rapid and/or more effective than trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy.

Miraculous Treatment

“Of particular note with respect to general clinical practice is a study conducted at Kaiser Permanente that reported that 100% of single-trauma victims and 77% of multiple-trauma victims no longer had PTSD after a mean of six 50-minute EMDR therapy sessions, demonstrating a large and significant pretreatment versus post-treatment effect size (Cohen’s δ = 1.74). This is consistent with 2 other RCTs that found that 84% to 90% of single-trauma victims no longer had PTSD after three 90-minute EMDR sessions.” (Shapiro, 2014).

Discussion of traumatic memories, a disturbing memory, negative memories, distressing memories, or even difficult memories are painful. Rather thank talking about these long-term memories outright, please have comfort in knowing that they will not be discussed in detail and that EMDR can perform memory processing of these traumatic unprocessed memories without it.
