In a safe, relaxing environment with a caring, intuitive, highly-trained therapist, consciously obtain the following results:

  • Permanently clear away emotional disturbances from negative events on 4 levels:  psychological, neurological, emotional (feeling), body (cellular).
  • Face long-term challenges and achieve results that are permanent.   Discover emotional or mental blocks and then release these negative barriers, replacing them with positive, affirmative thoughts and feelings.
  • Eliminate old or new fears, phobias and barriers so you can move forward in life and fulfill your goals and dreams.

Successful results have been achieved by therapist Deborah Bogle, M.A., L.L.P., I.C.A.A.C., when using EMDR in treatment of, but not limited to, the following conditions:

  • childhood abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, neglect)
  • childhood traumas
  • rape
  • compulsive overeating
  • poor body image
  • food restricting or purging (anorexia, bulimia)
  • low self-esteem issues (not-feeling “good enough”, not feeling worthy or lovable)
  • fear of public speaking
  • grief and loss issues (divorce, death, abortions, sig. other break-ups)
  • performance anxiety (test taking, dance, athletics, work assignments)
  • medical/dental procedures, tests and surgeries
  • job interview and job exits
  • auto accidents and driving fears
  • fear of relationship rejection and abandonment
  • panic attacks, anxiety disorders and adult traumatic events

Deborah Bogle was trained directly by Psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro who developed EMDR in 1987 in California. Dr. Shapiro studied it scientifically and then clinically, reporting much success (Journal of Traumatic Stress, 1989). Deborah has been a therapist for the last nine years and was a Human Resource Representative in the corporate arena five years prior.
