EMDR Counselling with Sally-Anne Haug, MA, RCC

Do you find yourself worrying all the time or constantly feeling stressed and anxious? Are you choosing unhealthy ways to cope or have your needs met? Perhaps your thoughts keep you awake at night and it’s difficult to function or relax. If you are tired of feeling this way, I understand. This type of stress and worry can disrupt your day making it difficult to cope, make good decisions and enjoy life. You may even be making choices that sabotage your success and don’t understand why you are repeating them. Please trust that you are not alone and that together, we can cultivate increased understanding, gentleness, peace and freedom. Counselling can give you tools to respond to what life throws at you more effectively. Life can be better when you free yourself from worries and negative thoughts. I aim to empower you to work through negative thoughts and to find the way for you to live happily and maintain healthy well-being. I look forward to working collaboratively with you and invite you to join me for a complimentary 20 minute consultation to see if I am a good fit for your needs. My schedule offers flexible appointment times and I welcome all adults as a potential client.more info

EMDR Therapy Vancouver Island, Online in BC and in Person in Victoria

We offer EMDR therapy, an evidence-based form of psychotherapy based on the adaptive information processing (AIP) model, which posits that trauma is stored and stuck in the brains neural network. Any memory of a traumatic event causes a person to connect to the negative feelings, body sensations and cognitions associated with it. The goal is to add adaptive emotions to the neural network. This is obtained through bilateral stimulation, a process that creates new neural pathways and the ability to access the stored trauma. This allows for the reprocessing of the trauma and a reduction of associated anxiety, thereby creating new associations with memories and increasing adaptive behaviours.more info
