Yes I agree, a T should call back with a day or so. Most would, so maybe they are on vacation or something. Does your T have any suggestions?

They will need to take a history on you, just like any T would. I have read the link before and phobias are not as treatable as other issues. It would depend why you have the phobia to begin with I would think. Was it due to trauma related incident (even if not remembered) or is the phobia unrelated to anything. I have a phobia of deep water and spiders, both are trauma related, one goes back before the age of 3. So I guess it depends on many things. Some T's are better at dealing with phobias than others, some know EMDR and some do not. Some T's return calls and some don't, you know how some T's can be.


> Thanks Babytoes.
> I called one provider listed at the EMDR institute, and she hasn't called me back. I suppose it's only been a day? No, two days. I don't think I'll call her again, but I might call someone else. How long is reasonable to wait in the belief that they intend to return a phone call?
> I was a bit put off after reading from this, also from the EMDR institute. In addition to the fact that it did nothing for me the time I tried it, I think I'd also say that the description of my phobia/obsession falls more into the category where they said EMDR may not be as helpful - even if I had responded.
> If I do go to see one, I hope I don't have to go into a tedious history of unrelated things. Surely I can limit the scope to my phobia?
