Have You Experienced a Traumatic Event?
Experiencing a traumatic event at any time in your life can have terrible consequences on your mental health. It may be difficult to process what you have been through, let alone start healing from it. If you are dealing with a trauma, a therapist can help you take the first steps towards recovery.
Some people are exposed to trauma regularly, such as soldiers, minorities, police officers, doctors and paramedics, while others experienced traumatizing events in their childhood & or as a result of inter-generational trauma. Regardless of the cause of your trauma, Amadew has experience in helping you process what happened and heal.
EMDR for Trauma (and much more)
Out of all the psychotherapies available, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) has proven to be one of the most effective methods for treating trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
An EMDR therapist often uses their fingers to guide eye movements, or other bilateral methods, like lightbars, and hand "buzzies". EMDR techniques are often calming, desensitize symptoms of trauma, and actually, remove it in place of a new and more appropriate belief system and response. This is a great therapy for people who need effective therapy that's effect continues after you leave!
Therapy for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Amadew offers a safe and understanding space to help you process and move on from the traumatic experiences that haunt you.
PTSD often affects people who have faced a serious threat or observed another experiencing something life-endangering. PTSD can also develop after physical or sexual assault, abuse, bullies in school, a medical emergency, or an accumulation of repeated traumas resulting in Complex PTSD.
