Sheehan Counseling Center, P.A.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy which helps clients to resolve the development of the trauma related disorders caused by exposure to distressing, traumatizing or negative life events. The goal of EMDR therapy is to process these distressing memories, reducing their lingering influence and allowing clients to develop more adaptive coping mechanisms.
Clinical Hypnotherapy - Hypnosis -- or hypnotherapy -- uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. Working with memories, hypnotherapy helps a person to reframe, relax, absorb, dissociate, respond, and reflect. The process reconstructs healthier associations with a person's past events. Dealing with a wide range of conditions, such as anxiety and depression, people become responsive to new solutions that can lead to personal development through hypnotherapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy refers to a range of techniques which focus on the construction and re-construction of people's cognitions, emotions and behaviors. Generally in CBT, the therapist, through a wide array of modalities, helps clients assess, recognize and deal with problematic and dysfunctional ways of thinking, emoting and behaving.
Ego Oriented Therapy
Ego oriented therapy refers to bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness which promotes insight and resolves conflict. Psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
In this therapy, clients are directed to relive experiences in which they felt strong emotion and to truly be present with those emotions, so as to develop greater emotional openness and resilience in the face of future challenges.
Play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on the play to help therapists communicate with children and assess their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and diagnose the problem.
