For me, it was awesome!!
My biggest anxiety came from Mr Lucky's confession, six months later I wasn't able to cope and would literally throw myself into an anxiety attack recalling verbatim what he confessed.
I believe there are several methods of approach to EMDR? Mine was this ticking sound through headphones, going from ear to ear, we'd stop and talk about things, I'd put the headphones back on....
At the time I was pissed off purple that I was such a mess I had to do it at all, the anger and resentment kind of countered the progress.
Looking back - 7 years ago - I wish I could take it up again for other issues.
Just try it, not everything is for everyone.
