Trauma - EMDR
Sharon utilizes EMDR for women and children who have experience trauma in their lives. EMDR is neurologically based.It is not hypnosis or mind control, but a method used by the leading of the Holy Spirit to guide into truth. It is a nonverbal therapeutic technique that uses the brain’s Rapid Eye Movement cycle (REM) – similar to the cycle your central nervous system uses during sleep to refresh, renew, and reprocess – to re-wire negative memories that were maladaptively encoded and/or incompletely processed at the time of a traumatic or disturbing adverse life experience. EMDR has been effective with healing past and present trauma, PTSD symptoms, persistent negative beliefs about oneself and much more. This eight phased process is one of the most effective and fastest forms of trauma therapy known in the field of psychology today. (Focus on the Family)
