EMDR was born from the PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) research on war veterans. Later its use was extended to many other traumatic or stressful experiences.
We shouldn’t think that only a catastrophic event represents a trauma to the human mind.
Sometimes even minor experiences may exceed the mind’s ability to process them and remain “frozen” in emotional memory networks (in the limbic system) which are then reactivated by daily stimuli, generating symptoms and dysfunctional behaviors.
“EMDR saved my life.
It was almost as if a surgeon removed the horrible memories and negative thoughts about me, replacing them with positive beliefs and giving me confidence. Who had abused me had convinced me it was my fault if they felt attracted to me. Now I can feel clean again”
“Thanks to EMDR I overcame my fear of flying, I was able to laugh on a plane!
Thanks for making me a better parent and moving on instead of being stuck in the past. At every session I felt relieved of an unnecessary and heavy burden”
“I started with EMDR during a time when I was fighting daily with severe migraines and anxiety. I am truly grateful that I have found such compassionate and professional listening.
EMDR helped me to walk inside deep memories and emotions and resume the path of serenity”
I’ve always been passionate about getting to know how the human mind works. For this reason my training has always been focused on the clinic, which is one of the most fascinating branches of psychology.
I specialize in a cognitive-oriented doctoral degree, a research-oriented institution focused on therapies based on scientific evidence.
There I learned about EMDR and this approach impressed me so much that I continued specializing and participated in the courses to obtain the official training.
Today I am grateful for this extraordinary method and to be able to give my patients back a life worthliving and to witness each time a small miracle.
