Trauma is a popular word and its meaning
varies from person to person. One common
symptom of unresolved trauma is a feeling
of “stuckness”, “being frozen” or “paralyzed”.
Two highly effective therapies for reducing
EMDR is a specialized approach, which seems to accelerate the treatment of a variety of psychological complaints such as PTSD, depression, and anxiety. EMDR’s techniques employ a strategy that helps shift brain images from the traumatic event to a healthy image. It works well with fears and phobias, and issues of self-esteem that are related to upsetting past events and present life conditions or situations, or disturbing experiences.
Somatic Experiencing is a body-focused therapy that identifies the “stuckness” and helps release the trauma. Often this can be done without reliving the actual traumatic event.
