This is probably the one you have heard the most about. It looks at how your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions all work together. We start by understanding what negative thoughts get in your way the most, how they make you feel, and how you respond. We'll explore what often causes these negative thoughts to come up for you. Then we'll make sure you know tools you can use to calm your body down in these situations so you can respond differently.
EMDR is a highly effective trauma therapy. It starts out like any other therapy - getting to know your therapist and building a rapport so you can feel safe navigating challenging topics. The therapist will spend time making sure you have tools to help yourself regulate your physical and emotional response to stress; that you feel more confident in talking about your emotions; and that you are taking care of yourself outside of therapy sessions.
In SFBT, we work backwards. Instead of focusing on how to "fix a problem", we focus on answering "what is the end goal?" and learning from our past success to tell us how to get there. We start by asking questions like, "what do you want your life to look like?", "what would need to be different between now and then?". You work with your therapist to create your own path forward, focused on where you want to go versus why it will be impossible for you to get there.
