Have you been considering EMDR for trauma that occured as a child? Listen tonight as Carol the Coach talks to Katie Raines who will be discussing how she uses it for clients who have been through trauma and feels that it is interferring with their lives.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting. Many types of therapy have similar goals. However, EMDR appears to be similar to what occurs naturally during dreaming or REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Therefore, EMDR can be thought of as a physiologically based therapy that helps a person see disturbing material in a new and less distressing way. We must access the parts of the brain that process pictures and symbols, and connect with troubling emotions and body sensations, in order to effectively address and heal from trauma. EMDR has been extensively researched and proven as a highly effective form of treatment. Clients find new vitality in their lives after each EMDR session.


Carol the Coach has worked with 1000's of clients who have fought this disorder and learned how to manage it and live fully optimal lives. Listen to her as she shares her wisdom and interviews the experts in her field.
