It does sound like you have a really careful and caring EMDR therapist. I had 5 sessions with mine before we did the actual process.
Although we did not go through the "here and now" experience of being asked to notice specific items in the room and how my body was feeling at that time, what would happen after an EMDR session was that my perception of my surroundings, while I drove home, we really heightened. I was cautioned to go home and to bed after an appointment so I would not be overwhelmed.
I think if we had gone through that separation of past and present impressions that this effect might have been lessened. I actually found it exhilarating as I felt very in tune with the places I drove past on the way home.
