MindfulYou.com is the newest venture by writer, speaker, teacher and psychotherapist, Dr. Michael A. Gordon. Michael’s specific qualifications are: Ph.D., MSc. in Consciousness & Transpersonal Psychology, EMDR trained.
Michael is also 6th Dan in Aikido, trained in conflict resolution, and a speaker and writer on issues addressing the confluence of neuroscience, trauma and contemplative/mindfulness practice.
With 20 years experience in the field of mental health and personal development, Michael offers a compassionate and sophisticated approach to treatment. Emphasis is placed on helping the client find the root causes of suffering, anxiety or unease, from their early family history, through present relationships to desired future outcomes. From an therapeutic standpoint, the focus is on first helping the client develop emotional awareness of underlying beliefs and behavioural patterns towards making more positive, holistic choices in their life.
While Michael offers verbal psychotherapy (talk therapy), he specializes in EMDR as it relieves the client from the stigma, shame and burden of the ‘why’ of their condition. Rather, it is a physiologically-oriented process based on accelerating self-healing by allowing the memory networks of the brain and nervous system to ‘re-metabolize’ and thus let go of past traumatic experience.
