EMDR Certified Therapist based in Calgary, Alberta
Wendy Thompson, BA, BSW, MSW
EMDR Certified Therapist, EMDR (CIT)
Hello & welcome!
I am a psychotherapist, registered social worker and EMDR Certified Therapist based in Calgary, Canada, who helps people heal from traumatic experiences and the effects of these painful events - 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.
