EMDR and Trauma

PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Yazmine Marimon has a vast experience working with people with trauma.

Some of the traumatic events Yazmine has treated are:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Emotional/physical abuse
  • Accidents
  • War/combat

How do you know you may be diagnosed with PTSD?

Have you experienced a traumatic event where you:

  • Have flashbacks or nightmares?
  • Avoid things that remind you of the event?
  • Feel emotionally numb at times?
  • Feel irritable and constantly on edge but can't see why?
  • Eat more than usual, drink or use more drugs than usual?
  • Feel that your mood is out of control?

These and other questions are part of the initial evaluation that Ms. Marimon completes in the first session.

She helps you differentiate between ordinary stress and trauma.

Yazmine tailors the treatment to your unique needs in a safe and trustful environment.

Yazmine has been trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a psychotherapy approach recognized as the most effective treatment for trauma by the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense.


Other psychotherapies Ms. Marimon finds useful with her clients are:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, problem-focused psychosocial intervention effective for depression, panic disorder, generalized anxiety and obsessive–compulsive disorder (Department of Health, 2001). Increasing evidence indicates its usefulness in a growing range of other psychiatric disorders.


Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the short term for Mindfulness Meditation Practice. This is a form of self-awareness training adapted from Buddhist mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening in the present, moment-by-moment, without making judgements about what we notice.

Mindfulness Involves:

  • ‘Stopping’
  • Paying attention
  • Becoming aware of present moment realities
  • Not to judge what is happening as ‘good’ or ‘bad’

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.

Yazmine Marimon has practiced EMDR for more than 5 years. She has received basic and advanced training to treat complex trauma and addiction.

EMDR is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Ms. Marimon will schedule a first evaluation to determine if you will benefit from this approach. EMDR sessions may last up to 90 minutes.

The number of sessions needed will depend on the type and severity of the experienced trauma. From 8 to 12 sessions.

If you would like to obtain more information about EMDR, Ms. Marimon will gladly answer your questions.
