Idk about like or dislike but it certainly left me emotionally raw immediately after and sometimes into the next morning. But I benefited immensely from it. As long as it’s used appropriately with other forms of therapy.

I have in the past when recovering from an abusive relationship and I think it helped.

I think you can do it yourself (felt pretty simple to me) but I’ll say it’s certainly helpful with a therapist. The results were instant. I could feel my breathing slowing down when I practiced the technique when having flashbacks.

My spouse does it. It has really improved our lives

Yep, it was really good for me this past year, trying to process the trauma around my dad's death.

I have and had good results with EMDR. Depending on the duration, intensity, and complexity of the trauma, it can generally take 1 to 10 sessions to resolve.

I am interviewing for a new IT Manager position. I started putting out soft feelers and then hit the hunt harder. The problem: I have one offer and need to give an answer by next Wednesday. I have two other opportunities that are in final steps but probably won’t have offers by next Wednesday. Both of the other offers will be higher pay but clearly are uncertain for offers. Do I accept the offer I have, which is a good one or wait for the other two to finalize and possibly miss out altogether?

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?
