Our centre was established in 2020 by a group of therapists who had a shared vision of creating a space for healing, with a focus on the evidence-based psychotherapy approach EMDR. Together we formed a collective, which became the Kāpiti EMDR & Therapy Centre.
Who we are
We are a collective of three therapists with a shared vision of helping people on their healing journey in a safe and warm therapy environment.
Our therapists have a shared passion for EMDR and its effective and positive outcomes we have seen for our clients.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.
Studies show that by using EMDR therapy, people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
Our resources page is for both new and existing clients of our centre.
We share a list of helplines for those in crisis, or needing 24/7 support.
We also share grounding and stabilising strategies that are an important part of the EMDR process.
We update these as regularly as we can.
