Trauma Informed Therapy & EMDR 

Are you struggling with the weight of past traumatic experiences? Do you find yourself haunted by memories or trapped in a cycle of emotional pain and distress? If so, you’re not alone. Trauma is a common human experience, but there is hope for healing and reclaiming your life. At VOX we are trauma informed therapists, with individuals on our team that specializing in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). We are here to offer you a path towards recovery and growth.


Understanding Trauma:

Trauma comes in many forms, from childhood adversity (complex trauma) to major life events (“Capital T Trauma”). It can leave lasting scars on our mental and emotional well-being. However, it’s important to remember that healing is possible, even when it feels out of reach.


EMDR: A Powerful Tool for Healing:

EMDR is a therapeutic approach that has shown remarkable effectiveness in helping individuals process and heal from trauma. It’s based on the findings that our brains have a natural capacity to heal from traumatic experiences, much like our bodies can heal from physical injuries. EMDR harnesses this innate ability through a structured and evidence-based protocol.


How EMDR Works:

During EMDR sessions, the therapist will work with you to identify and target the distressing memories or beliefs that are contributing to your emotional pain. Through a process that involves bilateral stimulation, we’ll help your brain reprocess these memories, allowing you to integrate them in a healthier way. This can lead to a reduction in emotional distress and a newfound sense of empowerment.


A Trauma-Informed Approach:

In addition to EMDR, we also employ a trauma-informed approach.That means we recognize the widespread impact of trauma and approach each client with sensitivity and understanding. We create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your experiences at your own pace, free from judgment.

Key Principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach:

1. Safety: Your emotional and physical safety is a top priority.

2. Trustworthiness: We aim to build trust through consistency and clear communication.

3. Empowerment: You are the expert on your own experiences, and we are here to support your choices and autonomy.

4. Collaboration: We work together as a team in your healing journey.

5. Cultural Sensitivity: We respect and honour your cultural background and experiences.


Healing from trauma is a courageous journey, and you don’t have to travel it alone. If you’re ready to take the first step toward healing, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are here to provide a safe and compassionate space for you to heal and grow, using the power of EMDR and a trauma-informed approach. Together, we can work towards a brighter, more hopeful future.
