Trauma Therapy

“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.”

~ Buddha

A trauma refers to any situation in which a person feels overwhelmed and unable to cope.  This may include “Big T” traumas or situations which we naturally think about as traumatic (war, car accident, assault, etc); or “little t” traumas which are situations/events that in and of themselves may not appear traumatic but become traumatic when they accumulate (job loss, relationship break-up, feeling unseen/unheard).  The impacts of trauma are far reaching and can impact our mental, physical, social, emotional, and psychological well-being.  Specialized treatment provided by a therapist with advanced knowledge and training in the treatment of trauma is often necessary to move towards recovery.

At Corbiell Counselling & Consulting Services, we specialize in the treatment of complex and developmental trauma and dissociative disorders.  Through many years of advanced training coupled with personal and professional experience with EMDR, I have found a strong somatic focus with EMDR to be most effective.

Natural Processing

(Process Oriented Somatic Therapy – Somatic EMDR)

Natural processing (NP) is a somatically-based, process-oriented therapy that integrates many approaches to healing and growth, including EMDR.  By focusing heavily on sensation and emotion, NP assists clients in expanding their resiliency, while gaining greater awareness of the disconnections and dynamics that impact effective processing.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an evidence based psychotherapy aimed at helping people recover from trauma by focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts and behaviors associated with a distressing situation or event.  This process allows the brain to resume the natural healing processes that are often disrupted after a traumatic event.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) uses the body as a powerful source of information to guide resourcing and the accessing and processing of challenging, traumatic and developmental experiences.  The SP approach includes somatic, emotional, and cognitive processing and integration.
