Are you suffering from intrusive negative thoughts, flashbacks or sleeplessness due to operational stress injuries brought on by your work as a healthcare professional, a first responder, or a Soldier /Veteran? Do you have negative memories of childhood trauma?
Are you a victim of sexual assault or suffer from negative symptoms and triggers related to a critical incident that you survived?
Do you find yourself stuck in hypervigilance, quick to anger, feeling ON or not feeling at all? These symptoms are normal responses to witnessing something traumatic at work or having survived something traumatic. Over time the brain and nervous system fill up with cumulative incidents that need to be processed. Left without some intervention, you could end up with PTSD. Eye movement desensitization therapy helps you process the trauma so that you no longer experience these negative symptoms. Processing trauma is also helpful for the complex post-traumatic stress of childhood trauma.
