I think it is great that you are considering giving EMDR a try. Are you going to see someone different this time?

I wouldn't worry about you don't feel like it will work. Most T's (who are trained to be skeptical about things like this) go into the training not sure if it really works. Part of their training is actually having it done on themselves while being trained and most of them come away astonished on how it effectually worked on themselves. (even just minor issues)

I have read most of EMDR books that is out there and I like this one the best because it is written by a T and gives her personal experience when learning it and her professional experience in using EMDR.

This one is similar to Parnell's book, but written from a male T's prospective.

If you have a choice, I would try to find an experienced EMDR T who has had some recent training in the last 5 years, or had some recent classes because EMDR has evolved into some new tweaks on how to best do it for other issues other than trauma or PTSD.

Every T I have had uses EMDR and they were all somewhat different. The standard procedure is mainly the same, but the way they do it can be different.

My current T allows me to free associate during the experience (using hand buzzers) and letting my mind go where it needs to go and let me talk about what I am experiencing. Some T's prefer that you don't talk (like my first T) about the experiences while it happens.

I would recommended a T who specializes in trauma and who uses it often in their practice. While your issue may not be due to trauma, it just seems to me trauma T's know how to deal better with emotions sensitively that may flood during the procedure or after.

One of the most important things in the beginning is making sure you have a safe place and can effectively use it you need to. Ways of relaxing are good too. Good luck Dinah.
