Counseling is sought out when we experience internal distress, which may include loss of significant relationships, changes in life circumstances, or coming in contact with emotional experiences that are unfamiliar to us. When these life situations take place, we may find it more difficult to engage in meaningful relationships, find enjoyment in work or other activities, or make sense of our emotional experiences. Individual therapy is a means of addressing these challenges.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR therapy has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness for trauma.
"The Circle of Security is a relationship based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Decades of university-based research have confirmed that secure children exhibit increased empathy, greater self-esteem, better relationships with parents and peers, enhanced school readiness, and an increased capacity to handle emotions more effectively when compared with children who are not secure."
