“I have seen Robert due to an addiction that was rooted in childhood trauma. The memory of the trauma came up in a session with another counsellor about one year prior to the treatment with Robert. That means, my trauma was hidden for more than 20 years deep down before it surfaced. Unfortunately, I was not able to heal through talking therapy for more than a year. A different counsellor mentioned to me that EMDR might be helpful and this is how I found Robert.
EMDR was able to solve something within a few sessions that talking therapy could not for more than a year.
Before the EMDR treatment, I felt like my life was surrounded by a bubble filled with painful memories and emotions. It was almost impossible to let myself feel the pain of physical abuse and neglect that occurred to me in my childhood. EMDR helped me to process the painful memories and stabilize my emotional response. Subsequently, my triggers became much less and the addiction became much less severe. I would say the painful memories have lost their intensity, which was simply liberating and lead to a new life.
Robert was very professional and helpful throughout the entire treatment. At times, when the memories were so painful (I even contemplated walking out of the session), Robert was able to guide me through the session with kindness and understanding. For that reason, I can only recommend Robert as a counsellor and EMDR as a therapy approach."
