Mindfulness therapy has emerged as an extremely effective, evidence-based tool for enhancing psychological health and wellbeing. It’s been clinically proven to successfully treat a wide range of clinical conditions including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and OCD. Mindfulness can effectively reduce stress, increase self-awareness, improve emotional intelligence and help one to become better equipped to handle painful thoughts and feelings.
EMDR therapy is recognized worldwide as an effective form of treatment for trauma. EMDR therapy can also be effective in treating the “everyday” memories that are the reason people have low self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, and all the myriad problems that bring them to therapy. Offered by Psychologist Anu.
