EMDR for Loss


I am part of a great peer group of EMDR practitioners and was sent a link to this wonderful article today which is definitely worth a read. It mirrors my experiences of working with people who feel stuck with the images of a traumatic loss which is blocking their ability to move through to a more complete emotional understanding of what has happened.

I've noticed this being resolved using talking therapy and also using EMDR. This lady noticed that talking therapy on its own didn't help her fully resolve the stuck bit (flashbacks) but that EMDR helped to shift this.
