EMDR Basic Training

Yorke Services

I feel privileged to have been given the trust of many people over the years, asking for my help to heal issues in their lives. I am passionate about the work, and extremely dedicated to my clients.
I begin where my client is, and initially focus on what I view as the most fundamental task of successful psychotherapy: establishing a positive, safe, therapeutic relationship, the ingredient, research shows, that most facilitates change. Using a collaborative approach, I empower my clients to build upon their own resources. I utilize numerous therapeutic modalities depending upon my clients? needs. I welcome diversity with respect to cultural, religious, sexual, and gender issues. I enjoy working with a variety of presenting concerns, such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, past and/or present abuse, other forms of trauma, as well as relationship difficulties, sexual orientation issues, medical and health concerns, grief and loss, stress management, and family of origin issues.
Feedback over the past 28 years that I have been using EMDR Therapy has been excellent, and clients continue to find great relief from issues that brought them to therapy. Some examples of traumatic or high stress events processed during therapy include but are not limited to sexual, emotional and/or physical abuse, war trauma, violence, bullying, motor vehicle accidents, medical/health traumas, childhood with alcoholic parents, and stress from a wide variety of issues. Phobias are another type of problem that are often eliminated with the use of EMDR therapy, for example, fear of flying.
I am a Registered Provider for the Canadian Military.
