EMDR Intensive Therapy
What is EMDR?
Is weekly therapy not working for you?
Typical 50 minute therapy session:
15 minutes: Check in about the week
25 minutes: Skill building/trauma processing
10 minutes: Wind down/recap/homework
About half of the session is dedicated to opening and closing the session, leaving a limited amount of time for you to learn new skills or process trauma. Other things may come up throughout the week that you want to talk about and you are not able to complete trauma processing that week.
An intensive gives you a 3 hour or 6 hour block of time (with short breaks) to process trauma. Thanks to EMDR therapy, you can often accomplish the same amount of work that you would in 2-4 months of weekly therapy in one day.
You will need a specific focus or goal you are trying to achieve such as (these are just a sample of examples):
Developing a go-to toolbox of skills for managing anxiety
Stopping panic attacks (often by processing the first and worse)
Overcoming a phobia (flying, public speaking, needles, insects, throwing up, etc)
Resolving anxiety/trauma that keeps you from dating again
Clearing blocks/past experiences to setting boundaries
Processing specific traumatic experiences that are most troubling (recent or past)
Preparation for something you are anxious about (birth, surgery, etc)
Resolving trauma related to emotional eating
And many more!
