EMDR Therapy

We are happy to announce this new service at Heartsbloom called EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is a psychotherapy treatment that enables people to heal from emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. This method involves moving your eyes a specific way while you process traumatic memories.

EMDR therapy demonstrates that people can experience the benefits of this technique with accelerated results that once took years to make a difference in traditional therapeutic settings.

EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, our clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.


EMDR and Anxiety: With specific training on empirically based EMDR Anxiety protocols and other anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks, phobias, and generalized anxiety. EMDR can be a great compliment to your psychotherapy sessions.

EMDR and Chronic Pain:  Additionally, EMDR can help support clients with chronic pain and illness. As pain is often a symptom and indicator of something deeper that is going on in the clients system. And in order to treat effectively chronic pain, it is necessary to reprocess the early advert childhood experiences and attachment patterns that are at the root of persistent pain.

Research:  More than 30 positive controlled outcome studies have been done on EMDR therapy. Some of the studies show that 84%-90% of single-trauma victims no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only eight 90-minute sessions. – emdr.com


CRM Therapy

CRM, also known as The Comprehensive Resource Model is a neuro-biologically based, trauma treatment model which facilitates targeting of traumatic experiences by remembering the healthiest parts of the individual self that were lost due to the trauma. The second facet of the work looks at ego states and the parts of the individual that got split off when the traumatic event occurred. CRM accesses information from the midbrain and brain stem, clearing away neruo-biological debris from the nervous system which is necessary for the mind-body connection and the healing of the healthy self in the present moment. 

Various forms of somatic attunement behaviours are used to help relax the nervous system and in turn give access to the subconscious traumatic material to be processed. Some of the Somatic Resources are breathing techniques, internal resources of attachment neurobiology, sound healing and toning, connection to nature, sacred geometry and anchoring to individual eye positions (similar to EMDR). These resources used in combination release chemicals associated with secure attachment, and it gives the body the strength to stay fully present and aware with otherwise unbearable emotions and pain.

Overall, CRM is a heart-centred approach in which clients are guided to re-member who they really are and to learn to embody their true authentic self.
