Whether you have been blindsided by being served court documents or you have initiated the proceedings with the intent of a fair outcome, the process of custody decision-making or family litigation can range from collaborative to traumatic, and everything in between. Clinical Counselling can help you navigate this transition and gain tools to regulate your nervous system and emotions.

Ally will support you with a trauma-informed and family litigation-informed approach to clinical counselling. Ally's approach is integrative using strengths-based interventions including Narrative and Response-Based.


What Is EMDR?

EMDR is a structured treatment that supports an individual in focusing on a disturbing memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation. The outcome is associated with a reduction in the intensity of emotion associated with the targeted memory as well as a reduction in impact to daily life impacted by subconscious "triggers" associated with the targeted memory.

How Can EMDR be done online?

EMDR requires bilateral stimulation to occur, but this can be achieved in a number different ways. Machines generating sound alternating to left and right ears, the client following a light across a screen from right to left (back and forth), or buzzers in hands alternating left and right are some of the ways bilateral stimulation is achieved. Tapping alternate shoulders using a butterfly self-hugging pose is a way to achieve this same result of bilateral stimulation and it is easily accessible during online video sessions. The remainder of the treatment protocol remains the same using any other form of bilateral stimulation like eye movement.
