Accelerated Therapy Programs
DISCOVER DEEP HEALING AND CHANGE WITH EMDR INTENSIVES
Do you know that something needs to shift ASAP and don’t have time to wait for the effects of traditional weekly sessions? EMDR intensives are the new “fast pass”, accelerated form of therapy focused on change and progress on a specific issue so that you can begin to resolve the parts of your inner system that deserve some dedicated attention and care.
If you have experienced a stressful event or trauma, or know logically one thing but your body or mind will not cooperate, this program may allow enough focused time to dive deeper into some of the inner workings that are blocking you from attaining more peace and confidence.
PERSONALIZED FOR YOUR NEEDS
Personalized EMDR intensives can bring about profound healing and lasting change. Some examples are below:
Reduce your Anxiety: The focused nature of EMDR intensives can help you delve into the underlying causes of your worries and overthinking, avoidance or setting impossible standards. The program is customized to help you make significant progress toward recognizing more adaptive beliefs and feeling more at ease.
Address Old Patterns: Through specialized techniques, we will identify past experiences, traumas, and beliefs that have kept you stuck. The intensive will give you focused time and energy toward breaking free from the chains so that you may discover more authentic and balanced ways to live your life.
Boost Confidence and Balance in Relationships: In the safe space of EMDR intensives, you'll explore your emotions, fears, and thoughts. Unpacking the experiences that shaped your automatic reactions and thought patterns, may help to rebuild your self-esteem and confidence. Unhooking from your experiences may also allow you to feel more natural and calm, to set fair boundaries, to communicate your needs to find win-win situations.
Make the Most of Your Time and Energy: With EMDR intensives, you get to expedite your progress without compromising your valuable time. Instead of weekly sessions, you'll dive deep into your healing during focused periods. You would skip the multiple trips, review, catch ups and closing of weekly sessions. This efficient approach is perfect for individuals who lead active lives and want to maximize their time and resources.
EMDR intensive programs can be stand alone with proper resourcing, or can act as an adjunct program to compliment other therapy models and therapists. It benefits clients who already have other supports or a regular therapist, but need some dedicated time and expertise to work on one, specific stuck point.

The economy is compelling: even compared to other trauma therapy, the intensive format may decrease treatment time, because of time saved from the beginning and end sections of a therapy session, leaving more time in the part of the session that promotes change. Learn more here.
