Safe Trauma Therapy: Waji’s Approach to Self-Guided Rapid Eye Movement Therapy

Here’s How Waji Ensures Safety and Effectiveness:

At Waji, we understand that navigating trauma therapy requires a personal and safe approach, especially for those exploring alternatives like self-guided EMDR or rapid eye movement therapy. Our method is intentionally designed to be gentle, allowing you to progress at your pace, and ensuring you never feel pushed beyond your comfort zone in a secure environment often sought in the safest PTSD therapies.

1. Agency in Healing: Your Self-Guided Alternative to EMDR:

You choose the focus of each session—whether you’re ready to tackle deeper traumas or need to ease into therapy with less intense triggers.

Unlike some traditional therapy models that can be rigid—often requiring extensive recounting of every painful life event or encouraging you to start with the “first” or “worst” events—Waji offers a different approach. You can begin with what feels most comfortable, whether that’s addressing smaller stressors or more significant trauma events. This gradual approach allows you to build confidence and emotional tolerance – enabling significant strides in your healing at your own pace.

2. Flexible and Adaptable Online Trauma Therapy for PTSD

At Waji, we understand that healing from trauma is a unique journey for each individual. That’s why our self-guided approach provides a comprehensive step-by-step framework that allows you to address your trauma in a way that feels comfortable and empowering. With Waji, you take back control of your healing process and determine the pace that suits you best. Consequently, ensuring that you receive the relief and help you need, both in the short-term and long-term.

3. Verbalization Not Required:

With Waji, recounting your trauma isn’t necessary, which means you avoid the risk of retraumatization that comes with verbalizing painful memories. Our self-guided sessions are about moving forward, focusing your energy on healing rather than explaining.

4. Single Focus per Session: Enhancing the Safety of Eye Movement Therapy:

To keep things manageable, each session concentrates on one session focus ( traumatic event, trigger, or unwanted emotion). This specific focus acts as a guide for your session – preventing the overwhelm that can come from trying to tackle too much at once.

5. Brief Controlled Recall:

Each session includes a single, 30-second recall of your session focus —this is just enough to connect with your emotions without overwhelming you. This short recall sets the stage for the session, ensuring you start from a present, and emotionally connected place.

6. Healing Focused on the Present and Future:

While the first phase of your session asks you to revisit your trauma for a brief moment – this is the only part of your session where you’ll look to the past. The remainder of your session focuses on your healing in the present, and future.

7. Complete Control:

You always have the option to pause, end, or shift the focus of the session whenever you need to. This complete control ensures the therapy process always aligns with your comfort level.

Who Might Find Waji Challenging?

While Waji offers a safe and gentle self-guided approach for PTSD, there are some it may not be suitable for everyone to use independently. Individuals who struggle significantly with panic or dissociation may require additional support. For these users, we recommend integrating Waji therapy with guidance from a professional therapist.
