Paul Krauss’ EMDRIA Profile
Traumatic experiences can trigger stress responses in our bodies even years after an incident. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy helps the brain process traumatic memories and allows normal healing to resume. The experience is still remembered, but the fight, flight, or freeze response from the original event is resolved. Unlike other therapies, EMDR involves less talking about details of the event. It focuses on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors associated with the event by pairing the negative thoughts with reprocessing through an eight-phase treatment guided by a trained therapist. EMDR can assist with recovery from:
- Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias
- Chronic Illness and medical issues
- Depression and bipolar disorders
- Dissociative disorders
- Eating disorders
- Grief and loss
- Performance anxiety
- Personality disorders
- PTSD and other trauma and stress-related issues
- Sexual assault
- Sleep disturbance
- Substance abuse and addiction
- Violence and abuse
