Living in the moment is the best place to start. There is no way to go back in the past and change anything as well as not being able to jump to the future to make any changes. That's impossible. But, in the moment, realizing that you have the ability to enjoy that moment, feel comfortable and happy.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems: depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness.
