Using spiritual belief systems and rituals as a part of therapy (fully dependent on client belief systems)
I utilize internal family systems as a framework for therapy. This is to get to know your inner child, inner critic, shadows, and other internal committee members. When we know our internal family, and can communicate with them, the internal world can live in more harmony.
When you undergo EMDR, you access memories of a trauma event in very specific ways. Combined with eye movements and guided instructions, accessing those memories helps you reprocess what you remember from the negative event. That reprocessing helps “repair” the mental injury from that memory. Remembering what happened to you will no longer feel like reliving it, and the related feelings will be much more manageable.
