WHEN THE PAST IS STUCK IN THE PRESENT
FOR TREATMENT OF TRAUMA, PTSD, GRIEF AND MANY OTHER THINGS
(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
In 2017, my mother was violently murdered by my brother. I experienced a complete shattering, both internally and externally. When the initial events settled down and I returned home to my regular life, I fell into a deep depression and struggled for months to even get out of bed. Finally someone recommended EMDR to me and I decided to try it out. On a scale of upset I went from a 10 to a 0 in three months and it absolutely lasted. It was nothing short of miraculous. This is not to say that I didn’t continue to grieve and suffer for years to come because I did. I obviously still missed her, but the trauma, the horror, the acute shock, the debilitating depression were gone. Now they are having tremendous success with veterans.
I have now completed my training and am reminded of the miraculous effects this work has to heal difficult events in a short amount of time. It didn’t even matter that it was online. I worked on a small thing in the training which cleared up in 30 minutes and last night I found myself dancing around the house in pure joy.
I am here to tell you that if you are carrying around unresolved trauma, there is no need to allow this to affect you any longer. EMDR is not a fad or hack, it absolutely works and the effects are lasting. I am living proof and NOW, I am thrilled to have the tools to help others heal in this way.
