The trauma you have experienced is affecting your everyday life. You have difficulty sleeping, intrusive thoughts pop up without warning, and you feel anxious most of the time. You want to feel better, to move on from the haunting images in your mind of the trauma you experienced.
Everyone reacts to trauma differently. However, some of the common symptoms of trauma that indicate a person might have PTSD or at least benefit from a trauma therapy like EMDR include:
Depending on the constellation of trauma symptoms, an individual could also qualify for a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialized trauma therapy. This method is an evidence-based trauma treatment. Research shows that EMDR helps with other issues, such as panic attacks, depression, chronic illness, and grief/loss, to name a few.
When you meet with your therapist, they will explain in more detail how EMDR works. The short story helps your brain to process the traumatic event. This way, you can get the traumatic memory unstuck from the “fight, flight, or freeze” part of your brain. Then, you’ll begin to have fewer unwanted symptoms of trauma and PTSD.
Therapists weren’t always sure how well EMDR therapy would translate to online therapy. But, since COVID-19 started, we have adapted our method to be able to work via our online telehealth platform. We use various effective methods and a special type of software to help facilitate the sessions. We have great results with a new way of facilitating EMDR therapy that works for our clients. From our therapy offices, we can now offer EMDR to people across Pennsylvania.
Maybe you are afraid to start therapy because you don’t want to discuss the trauma that you have experienced. This form of trauma therapy is different from other types of treatment. Most notably, it doesn’t require you to talk about the trauma in detail like other forms of trauma therapy might. However, it’s still really, really effective. EMDR therapy can be offered via online therapy, making it accessible to anyone living in Pennsylvania.
