EMDR--therapy--for TOBY

Posted by DL on April 13, 1999, at 21:42:02

I wrote to you in the long strand above a few days ago --in case you did not see it. however someone has asked that we start new strands so here goes.

Liked the therapist. She agreed that EMDR would be good next step for me. Session planned for 4-22 at 3PM-----a little nervous!

Below is e-mail message from her (she teaches at local University and has e-mail there) in response to my message after visit--asking how the me she read about in all the forwared records matched the me she met and how I should prepare for EMDR---

"I was impressed with our first meeting in that you appeared to be so open
and ready to move ahead with fighting "the demons". You also struck me as
a person who has been through a lot, learned a lot, and has hope for her
future. All of these things bode well, I think, for your own work and
desires to feel better and more whole.

AS for the EMDR exercise itself, you may want to be thinking about a
specific memory that you feel best explains to you the way that you are
presently relating to your world. As in something that made a statement
that you find continuing to define you or your behavior.

We'll start with that when you come in and see how we progress. It is not
unusual to be anxious. We will also see how that feels as we decide how
to progress."

She also said that sometimes the brain keeps on processing after the session and I may have increased dreams etc. Is this something you have noticed?

Thank you again for supporting me. I hope this new adventure will open up life a little for me. If you are still interested and have time, post after my EMDR session and I will respond. Dotty
