Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

ART is an evidence–based novel psychotherapy that fosters rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories and imagery. ART has roots in and includes elements of existing evidenced-based modalities. The treatment program incorporates memory visualization techniques that are enhanced by the use of horizontal eye movements, as well as memory reconsolidation, a way in which new information is incorporated into existing memories.

Experience remarkable benefits starting in the first session.

The client is always in control of the entire ART session, with the therapist guiding the process. Although some traumatic experiences such as rape, combat experiences, or loss of a loved one can be very painful to think about or visualize, the therapy rapidly moves clients beyond the place where they are stuck in these experiences toward growth and positive changes. The process is very straightforward, using a technique called Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement to change the way in which the negative images are stored in the brain. The treatment is grounded in well-established psychotherapy techniques, and the end result is that traumas and difficult life experiences will no longer trigger strong emotions or physical reactions. Importantly, clients do not even have to talk about their traumas or difficult life experiences with the therapist to achieve recovery.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a well researched and highly effective treatment for trauma in all forms. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If you poke or re-injure the wound, it causes you pain and healing is disrupted. Psychological trauma is very similar. Your brain naturally moves toward health and healing, but often that process is blocked or thrown into dis-regulation by a disturbing event (or series of events). Your emotional wounds can then fester and cause intense suffering. Once blocks are removed, healing resumes. Using EMDR, Sean can help you activate your body's own natural healing processes.

Studies show that up to 90% of single-trauma victims no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only three 90-minute sessions. In another study, 77% of combat veterans were free of PTSD in just 12 sessions.

Sean is an EMDR trained clinician.
