Offering EMDR Therapy in Huntington Beach
I specialize in using methods such as EMDR Therapy and Brainspotting. Why? They can provide fast relief and permanent healing and recovery.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR Therapy, is an efficient, effective and extensively researched therapy. It helps release and clear negatigve emotions, thoughts, physical ailments and dysfunctional patterns of behavior. Often people have almost resigned to a “status quo.” They fear never being able to change some issues from which they suffer. After EMDR Therapy, they report the results are “miraculous.”
The negative beliefs that get cleared out through EMDR Therapy in Huntington Beach generally stem from past experience, very often from childhood, where the young child perceived painful/neglectful/abusive situations as meaning something about his or her own self. Examples are: “I am not good enough,” “I am bad,” “I am alone,” I am not deserving,” “I am stuck.” These negative beliefs are not really true (We know it intellectually. But such beliefs feel true at a gut level nevertheless).
These core beliefs do run the show of our lives whether we are consciously aware of them or not — until they are cleared.
