ABOUT ME

Wendy Thompson, BA, BSW, MSW

Certified EMDR Therapist

Hello & welcome! 

 

I am a psychotherapist, registered social worker and Certified EMDR therapist based in Calgary, Canada, who helps people heal from traumatic experiences and the effects that these painful events have - anxiety, depression, nightmares, stress, emotional exhaustion.

 

I am trained in many types of therapy however my focus is on using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). It is recommended by the World Health Organization as the first line of treatment in working with individuals who have experienced trauma and PTSD.

My own journey with EMDR started more than a decade ago when I had the therapy myself and realized how quickly it helped me heal. EMDR changed my life! When I started using this therapy with clients I saw that they had similar results. They were able to get relief they could not get from other therapies.

My background is diverse. I was born in Nova Scotia, grew up in the Lower Mainland (BC) & I now live in Calgary. Before I entered the field of psychotherapy I worked in the fine arts and journalism. I have a life-long job as a mother of two boys. 

 

I believe in  authenticity, respect & trust. I am here to help you heal.

 

-Wendy
