Eye Movement Integration (EMI) Therapy, is a powerful therapeutic technique that we use here at Pembina Counselling Centre. As the Clinical Director of PCC, I have seen firsthand the transformative effects that EMI can have on individuals who are struggling with the aftermath of traumatic experiences.

The basic principle behind EMI is that traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the brain’s processing system, causing a range of challenging or difficult symptoms to persist. By using a protocol involving guided eye movements, we can help integrate the brain’s natural processing system, restoring¬†our capacity to deactivate.

At Pembina Counselling Centre, we take a holistic approach to therapy, and EMI is just one of the many tools in our toolbox. We work with each individual to deal with what stands in the way of good outcomes.

If you or someone you know is struggling with the aftermath of a traumatic experience, I encourage you to reach out to our team at Pembina Counselling Centre to see how we can help.
