Individual EMDR Retreats
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy method that was developed by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. in 1987 and has become a well- recognized and effective treatment for trauma and other types of painful emotions and experiences. The HERE (Healing EMDR Retreat Experience) Program at Labyrinth offers an intensive and rapid treatment approach that is grounded in well-established and effective methods of strengthening coping skills and processing painful experiences to promote healing. In our individual retreats, clients will work with one of our highly trained EMDR therapists to develop a focused treatment plan, increase mastery over intense emotions, strengthen interpersonal connections, and work through a series of painful memories using EMDR and other specialized methods. In standard weekly therapy, this type of treatment can take months or years to complete. Our healing retreats allow clients to progress quickly over a series of days, without the interruptions and unnecessary limitations of weekly sessions. Often our clients report experiencing significant relief and meaningful change in 3 to 15 days of treatment in our HERE program, though each person is different and makes progress at their own pace. Most insurance companies do not yet recognize the significant benefits and cost-effectiveness of full-day EMDR treatment and therefore do not currently cover this type of treatment. We strive to provide our individual retreats at competitive rates and recognize that clients are making a significant financial commitment to themselves by participating in the HERE program. Our clients consistently report that the out-of-pocket cost of this treatment was well worth it. They tell us that they never expected to feel better so quickly. They notice the benefits of treatment in many aspects of their life. And when we are able to follow-up with clients months or years after their retreat experience, they report ongoing benefits of this treatment including improved relationships, self-mastery, and an improved ability to consistently make good choices in their lives.
