Wendy Irrinki Counselling

Virtual Appointments

About



My name is Wendy Irrinki and I am a Licensed Counselling Therapist from New Brunswick, Canada. During the day, I am a Registered Nurse with The Horizon Health Network working in youth mental health services. In the evenings, I offer counselling appointments for older adolescents, adults and families.

I provide virtual appointments specializing in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). My education includes the follwing modalities; CBT, DBT, addictions therapy, mindfulness, play therapy, the ARC trauma model, SANE training, CISM training and solution focused therapy.

For me, the missing piece of the puzzle is EMDR. It is a very powerful therapy that goes beneath the surface to access root memories that cause symptoms. At your appointment, I will use a combination of modalities, including EMDR, to provide care.

About

EMDR


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an empirically valid, evidence-based practice that has been shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD, trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, addictions and many other symptoms that people experience.

What we know from an ever-growing body of research in EMDR, is that when we activate both sides of our body, we also activate both sides of our brain. This stimulation, together with standardized and adapted protocols, can help us to desensitize and reprocess disturbing or upsetting experiences that may be causing us difficulties in our day-to-day life. This process also helps us to reconnect to and access more healthy and adaptive information about ourselves. EMDR can’t change what’s happened, but it can help you change how you respond to what’s happened. It can also help you to let go of unhelpful, negative self-judgements that may be keeping you stuck and help you connect to a more adaptive, healthy view of yourself and your ability to navigate the world. During our initial visit we assess together if EMDR is the best treatment to help you regain your health and well being.

Please visit the EMDRIA website more information about this treatment modality.
