My therapist wants to start EMDR (eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) therapy with me to work on my relational trauma.
I know a lot of people who’ve done EMDR for the more “typical” or “big-T” traumas, but I have never heard of its use for complex trauma before.
Does anyone have any experience of this? What was it like for you?
We talked it through today and bottom line is I’m frikkin terrified. I dissociated really badly just talking about some memories, events and even some simple practicalities relating to what EMDR entails.
I don’t like what’s happening to me one bit!
I guess that therapy isn’t meant to be likeable is it…
