Exceptionally Gifted Body Psychotherapist "My experience with Bernie Soon was an incredibly positive one. After suffering severe panic attacks and depression I contacted Ms. Soon after reading about EMDR therapy on the internet. I found her techniques to be extremely comforting and effective. After just one EMDR visit I had a complete change in my mental state which allowed me to again feel free of anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I went to her for one follow up session primarily to let her know how successful her technique had been. I would highly recommend her. She is lovely, her place of business is very tranquil and she is very professional. It was a very positive experience." Hired as an EMDR / Somatic Experiencing Therapist in Los Angeles. Pros: Highly effective, Very professional, Compassionate.
Compassionate and Down-to-Earth Psychotherapist "I came across Bernie Soon for the first time online - actually on here and on Bernie's website - and I feel so lucky to have her as a first-time psychotherapy patient. I have sort of a different problem than the other reviewers on here - where my problem came from years of chronic, toxic parenting.. But the therapy of EMDR is the same. Bernie listens to you in a very comforting, serene, Zen environment and she offers sound suggestions. I plan on continuing to go back to her, also as a lifestyle/leadership coach." Hired as an EMDR / Somatic Experiencing Therapist in Los Angeles. Pros: Ambiance, environment, private.
Bernie Soon is an Insightful and Caring Therapist "I went to Bernie Soon because of an old cervical sprain that never properly healed and was continuing to cause me problems. Bernie showed me how to slow down and pay attention to the body. Using her background in EMDR and Somatic Experiencing we worked through the trauma that resulted in the neck problems. As a result I get "triggered" less and less and feel a renewed confidence in my body. I highly recommend her services." Hired as an EMDR / Somatic Experiencing Therapist In Los Angeles.

Yelp User Review "After years of being in therapy I ended up in Los Angeles and found Bernie online. I had never heard of EMDR but decided to take a chance. I have never had such a good experience or incredible progress.

Hired as an EMDR / Somatic Experiencing Therapist in Los Angeles - June 2012
Yelp User Review - Working with Bernie has been a truly life-changing experience. "I came to her after having suicidal thoughts, and since then have embarked on a journey of personal growth, identifying self-destructive patterns and witnessing a serious shift in my mental paradigm. She is kind, a great listener and guides me to the right sources of information in a nonjudgmental way. Since seeing her, both my friends and family have mentioned that I seem "happier," "content" and "in a better place." I have to credit Bernie for this. I look forward to our EMDR sessions each week, and I feel like I am on a path to healing and, overall, a more satisfying life. I have no idea what I would have done had I not begun seeing her. Worth every penny." Hired as an EMDR / Somatic Experiencing Therapist in Los Angeles - Nov 2011
Yelp User Review - "I feel rejuvenated and relaxed after every session. Bernie helped me target and identify areas of my body where I had trapped emotion and feelings. She made me understand that letting go of these feelings takes time and that through EMDR, somatic experiencing, and relaxation, I could move forward with a healthy perspective. Bernie is a unique therapist because she adds touch to her therapy sessions to allow the client to truly feel the blockage and free the tension. She always seems to know where the tension is. She is so friendly and I can talk to her about anything without shame and without judgment. She tailors each session to allow full benefit each and every time. I have learned so much about myself and how easy it is for me to blame myself when I don't warrant blame. The world we live in encourages anxiety and Bernie has been a blessing because I now have control over my anxiety! She is a phenomenal therapist. The therapy space is serene, peaceful, and calm. When I walk in, I immediately feel calmer and in a place of safety." Hired Bernie as an EMDR & Somatic Experiencing Therapist in Los Angeles - March 2011

"I met Bernadette Soon over a year ago and since then a brand new world has opened its doors to me. I had interviewed other therapists but I found myself unhappy with the more conventional ways of treating my problem. EMDR was totally unknown to me and I have to say that after just one session, I felt and saw the light at the end of my endless misery. I felt immediately something was in motion in me as well as a huge peaceful place where anxiety & discomfort were no longer alive. It is difficult to explain but her tranquil and very professional way of treating her patients, I am sure make her a highly sought after expert. Her EMDR and Somatic Experiencing techniques not only bring peace to you but her intuitive way of helping you will do marvelous things to your entire well being and soul. * Since my EMDR therapy ended, my energy level and enthusiasm have quadrupled along with a thirst for more in life and an incomparable success level which I have never experienced in my Business before.

"Bernie Soon is an amazing EMDR therapist. It is subtle work, but works on levels you didn't even know you had. I have had 5 of my best friends go to her, all very different, and we all have changed profoundly through working with her. She is completely trustworthy and discrete. There is absolutely no cross-talk. Bernie's manner is soothing, comforting and it works! I cannot recommend her enough. And what's great about working with her, is that she is honest. She does not want you to become dependent on her. She will tell me when I have had enough and to take a few months off. I took six months off from seeing her and then went back for a few sessions before I got married. It is so wonderful to have a therapist like that.
