Parent Testimonial:Turning Poiint's Sharon Schwartz used "2-Square" EMDR to help my son overcome his anxiety about food alergies and it has changed our lives. Our son is the only one with food alergies, but it impacted all of us. His anxiety was paralyuzing, making eating out while traveling very stressful and sometimes impossible. He was in talk therapy for over 1 1/2 years and showed little improvement, however, after only 1 session of EMDR he felt less anxious. After 3 sessions, he was like a completely different person. We are so grateful to sharon for giving us back our son...I wish I had sought this treatment approach sooner. Although the responsibility for his allergies will always be a part of his life, we travel and dine out without the panic and drama. As a parent, to have found Sharon with "2-Square" EMDR make such a noticeable and immediate improvement in my child's life is amazing, and we are so grateful.

Participant Reviews:

Take a minute to review this excerpt. This therapist's observations just might echo some of your own goals:

"I have used EMDR in my practice and worked with children for years ...this material added significantly to my practice and creative options, especially for an effective use of art and a protocol with children...(rather than just unstructured play).  I appreciated Sharon's generosity of spirit in her sharing of her office set-up, tools, and her training (delivery)... it was like she wanted to share everything she has learned in her years of practice with children to help others be as effective as she has learned to be.  I can't wait to use this method (in my office).  On my learning experience, I was able to print and keep the workbook and felt I had as much to take with me as I get in face-to-face settings, (all the while) being able to do this from the comfort of home/office and in my own time frame."

Let the healing take root

When you put this therapy technique to work, you will be amazed at the results. As the client heals, their sense of who they really are emerges. They are able to access memories and negative cognitions that are holding them back. They are able to reprocess those memories, form new positive thoughts about themselves, break old patterns, and seek different outcomes they truly want. As they change before your eyes, their joy and success willl be a true mutual reward.

Your role as therapist in delivering this EMDR intervention is to act as the stenographer as they rewrite their past memories and develop stories about who they are now and what experiences they can manifest for themselves in the future. Enjoy this experience as you watch your clients heal and grow.
