    I am seeing a counselor who specializes in PTSD and EMDR ....sorry I can't help , he won't use it with me because I still dissociate and sometimes if they take you to a trauma and you dissociate it's very dangerous and at times you don't come back from it...neither of us are willing to try this with me....Best of luck < I had to do all the memories the hard way......reliving them all...but I 've done it.....not finished yet....but hard as it was , sad as it was ....I am better for doing it...wishing you all the best...

    I had a shrink tell me years ago she wouldnt use emdr on me for the same reason, too traumatizing.
    Maybe some day ill try again.

    Can it really be dangerous if you dissociate?? I considered this but I have DP so maybe not
