Current couple dynamics are sometimes affected by earlier life experiences. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) may be helpful.

In situations of infidelity an injured  partner will frequently have trauma symptoms: nightmares, anxiety, flashbacks distressing and all-consuming thoughts.

EMDR can help with symptom reduction.

Exactly when and how EMDR is used as part of couple’s therapy is a decision between you, your partner and your therapist. Sometimes both partners are present. Sometimes only one partner attends.

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-day music therapy intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. The program is derived from nearly four decades of research on the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and social-emotional processes. Following successful completion of the intervention, individuals become better able to focus in school, work, therapy, and everyday life and experience a calmed emotional and physiological state.
