When a person experiences emotional disturbances such as depression, anxiety, or anger then it is these stressors will be made worse by a baised way of thinking.

It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Daring Way™” tab_id=”1537996093378-6515186a-e282″][vc_column_text]Daring Way is program to promote authentic and wholehearted living using experiential methodology.
