Counselling is the first positive step in the right direction. Seeking counselling isn’t a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength.
I chose to have EMDR because I had a lot of issues I hadn’t been able to put behind me and could not get them out of my mind. I found EMDR to be a sucessand it helped me put a lot of my unresolved issues to rest and I was able to move forward with my life. After I had EMDR I found that everything was up, up up from there.
In February this year I had a road traffic collision and at the time tried to deal with the injuries of the person who I was in collision with while calling the emergency services. To cut the story short I started to suffer flashbacks and sleepless nights so it was suggested that I visited a psychologist for an assessment, I was advised that I would benefit from some EMDR sessions, at first I was a bit sceptical but after my first visit to my counsellor I decided to embrace the sessions and see what happened. My counsellor explained all about the treatment until I was fully aware of what we may endure over the next few sessions. The next three weeks were totally amazing I was taken back to the vision of things around the collision and what emotions I felt at the time, shedding a few emotional moments I genuinely could feel the anger and negativity releasing from my body and positive emotions coming into my thoughts. I know I still have more to get out of my sessions but I am totally amazed how this treatment has worked so far.
