Recovery from the effects of trauma and abuse is not only possible, but can act as a pathway to transformation.
Establishing and maintaining a surer sense of safety and well-being in the 'here and now' - both within and beyond the therapy room- is central to this work. The power of the present moment is unfathomable.
The use of mindfulness can be a vital tool to discover how trauma might be influencing us in our everyday lives, enabling us to feel freer from its charge as a result.
Like the tortoise who carries a home on its back, so our work will develop ways to bring more of a feeling of belonging and comfort within ourselves in each present moment.
EMDR can be an effective way of helping to free up from the hold that traumatic memory can have on us. It may be incorporated alongside the work that has already been established. Sessions including EMDR will last 30 minutes longer than the usual hour.
