Healing Trauma, Restoring Balance

Are you struggling with the lingering effects of past traumas? Do painful memories or experiences continue to impact your daily life? At Sea Change Psychotherapy, we offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help you overcome trauma, regain control, and experience lasting emotional well-being.

What is EMDR Therapy?

EMDR therapy is a highly effective and evidence-based approach to trauma treatment. It integrates elements of cognitive therapy, bilateral stimulation, and eye movements to help you reprocess traumatic memories and alleviate associated distress. EMDR has been recognized as a powerful tool in resolving various forms of trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, phobias, and more.

Our Approach

At Sea Change Psychotherapy, we are dedicated to providing a safe and compassionate space for your healing journey. Our skilled EMDR therapists are trained to guide you through the EMDR process, helping you access and reprocess distressing memories, beliefs, and emotions in a structured and supportive manner.

Services We Offer

  • Comprehensive Trauma Assessment: Our therapists will conduct a thorough trauma assessment to gain a deeper understanding of your unique experiences and challenges. This assessment serves as a foundation for developing a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs.
  • EMDR Therapy Sessions: In EMDR therapy sessions, our therapists will guide you through a series of bilateral stimulation techniques, such as eye movements or tapping, while you focus on specific traumatic memories or negative beliefs. This process facilitates the reprocessing of those memories, allowing you to reduce distress and develop new, more positive perspectives.
  • Resolving Negative Beliefs: Traumatic experiences often lead to negative self-beliefs, such as feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, or a sense of being unsafe. Through EMDR therapy, we’ll work together to identify and reframe these negative beliefs, promoting self-compassion, self-esteem, and a sense of personal empowerment.
  • Building Coping Skills: Alongside EMDR therapy, we will help you develop practical coping strategies to manage distressing emotions, triggers, and stressors. These skills will support your ongoing emotional well-being and resilience long after your therapy sessions have concluded.
