Having struggles in your relationship? Do things seem hopeless? Are you experiencing too much stress? Does conflict seem like a daily occurrence? Does reconciliation seem impossible?
In couples counselling we use strategies based on Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Goals include: disarming conflict; removing barriers to respect and intimacy; creating empathy and understanding.
The goal is to support couples in their relational goals and find ways to repair and renew relationships. In couples therapy, communication tools and strategies will be introduced to help work through conflict while planning and investing in the future .
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a statistically proven 8-phase method used for trauma therapy. EMDR asks the client to retain dual-attention by being grounded in the present while allowing the body to feel the feelings in “trauma time”. The greatest advantage of EMDR over other types of therapy is that it begins with the root cause of the problem.
EMDR is a form of therapy that is not a fit for all. Bilateral stimulation, (reprocessing of the traumatic material) is phase 4 of the 8 phases. Some people require resourcing, (phase 2) for many months or several years. All phases are equally important.
Nikki has received EMDR training from Sue Genest, Dr. Roger Solomon, Dr. Kathleen Martin, Dr. Carol Forgash, and Dr. Michael Hase. In addition, she receives ongoing (monthly) and as needed consultation from Michelle Gay.
