EMDR

This is the first time I’ve come across EMDR – must research further!

“If you follow the paintbrush with your eyes while not moving your head, it forces you to use emdr which is a therapeutic technique to calm anxiety/panic. Watching fish swim causes the same effect.”

    I had one session of EMDR. Which I can resoundingly say wasn’t enough to make a realistic judgement. It was interesting though. No fish or paintbrushes though. Just watching a therapist wave her hand back and forth whilst thinking of things.

        The way the counselling service is commissioned locally means you only get 8 sessions of counselling. I was on my second go round (so 14/15) when I started the EMDR. The first was a preperation (embedding the ‘safe place’) and then I had a full 45 minutes of it the next time.

        At that point my sessions ran out. The second full session I was expecting didn’t happen (the only time I was late to the appointment) and the one after that was essentially an exit the service meeting.
