At Hope Springs Counseling, we are proud to offer Licensed & Trained EMDR Trauma Therapy Services, in addition to Multi-Day EMDR Intensives in our Monroe & Athens, GA Locations.
E.M.D.R. (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, traumatic, life experiences. EMDR Trauma Therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body can heal from physical trauma, via a subconscious bilateral stimulation approach. The ultimate goal with EMDR based therapy is to break the malaligned trauma bonds that are stored in the mind, formed through past experiences, big or small. There has been extensive research and multiple controlled studies on the positive effects of EMDR & EMDR Intensives, so much so, that it is now recognized as an effective form of treatment for trauma and other disturbing life experiences by organizations such as The American Psychiatric Association, The World Health Organization and The Department of Defense. We are honored to offer Licensed & Trained EMDR Trauma Therapy Services at Hope Springs Counseling in both our Monroe and Athens locations, and to be named the GA Affiliate for the Complex Trauma Training Consortium.
Our 2-day EMDR Intensives allow our clients to fully dive in and combat trauma, big or small, in a safe, targeted and efficient manner. These Intensives provide a safe haven away from external triggers and scheduling constraints while providing an extremely customized and personalized approach to trauma therapy treatment. Each Intensive includes a pre-session intake evaluation and customized treatment plan with one of our Licensed and/or Trained EMDR Therapists. Accommodations are available along with additional wellness services to compliment your treatment, such as Intentional Bodywork, Movement Mat Work, and Reiki Energy Work. Explore the walkable town and culinary options of Monroe, GA as you gain clarity, heal & transform with EMDR Trauma Therapy.
An EMDR Intensive provides our clients a more efficient and experience based means to combatting and healing trauma. It involves the same attention and personalized care as a normal EMDR therapy session, but conducted in a condensed amount of time, within a safe, trigger free, total healing environment.
A typical EMDR Intensive program is 2 days. Each day will consist of two, two and a half hour EMDR sessions, along with ample time for meals, integration breaks, rest, and optional on site wellness add-ons.
We currently offer Intentional Massage/Bodywork, a Mat Based Movement/Pilates class and Reiki Energy Healing on site during the intensive. These will be selected and scheduled based on therapist availability once your dates are confirmed and itinerary is set.
Hope Springs Counseling offers full accommodations via their sacred space, The Well at Hope Springs. This safe and private renovated cottage is located behind the Hope Springs Counseling office in Monroe, GA. Guests can choose to come and go on the same day, or stay the night to explore the walkable town, shopping and culinary options of Monroe, GA.
Intensives offer our clients a more efficient approach to healing, away from the normal triggers and scheduling constraints of everyday life. The sessions are very targeted based on the intake process and provide our clients a safe and private space to not only experience EMDR, but to allow for integration, clearing and total relaxation. EMDR Intensives can provide a total healing experience and are extremely personalized.
Just as with any EMDR treatment, or therapy in general, there are no guarantees when it comes to trauma healing. Our intensives are designed to target specific traumas and/or allow for smaller 't traumas' to present themselves via subconscious bilateral stimulation work, and have shown to be extremely successful in our trauma-based counseling practice. The success of EMDR treatment is highly coveted overall, and is now recognized as an effective trauma healing therapy by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense. In addition, Hope Springs Counseling is now recognized as the only GA Affiliate of the Complex Trauma Training Consortium, and we hold that title with the upmost respect and care.
The cost of the Intensive depends on the level of EMDR Professional providing therapy, dates selected, whether overnight accommodations are needed and the potential for wellness add-ons. By contacting our Client Liaison, you can inquire about booking your personalized experience. Rest assured that our services are priced extremely fair for the immersive healing experience, private accommodations, and professionally trained therapists provided.
