Transpersonal and EMDR Therapy Helps to
Overcome Traumatic and Other Distressing Events
Experiencing a highly stressful or traumatic event or series of events can turn your life upside down.
Your mood and overall quality of life have deteriorated. You may have lost a sense of meaning or purpose.
Worst of all, you worry that you’ll always have these troubles.
Yet, you’re desperate for relief.
You’re hoping counseling can help even though you may have tried it before to no avail.
It shows strength and courage to reach out to a therapist.
Seeking a therapist indicates that you have a strong desire to overcome your troublesome symptoms. A willingness to heal your pain and distress is the first step in healing from trauma.

Any troublesome event that caused distressing symptoms
If you experience symptoms of trauma or PTSD, you’re not alone, and there is NOTHING wrong
The distressing symptoms you experience are “normal” reactions to abnormal events. Stressful and traumatic situations can overwhelm your nervous system and cause a pattern of negative responses that get stuck in your brain.
Often specific types of therapy, such as EMDR, [link to section on approaches page where this is discussed] that are known to help release these patterns and heal trauma symptoms are required.
While major stressful events often cause distress, sometimes even events that seem insignificant at the time can cause a great deal of turmoil.
