So much to take away from this interview.
The information regarding EMDR for children was especially helpful too.
Thank you, Ally, for watching! I am glad to hear the EMDR information for children was helpful. 🙂
Thank you both for this. You’re both amazing! Really resonated with me from start to finish. I have signed up on Kristen’s website. I have been curious and trying to find out more about EMDR for a while (I am currently in therapy but don’t think it would be offered to me there). One question – I did hear that EMDR works best on specific isolated PTSD trauma. My trauma is ongoing childhood related, predominately attachment – could EMDR possibly help in this case? Or brainspotting (i’d not heard of this)?
Thanks so much
Thank you so much for your feedback and for divining up fir the newsletter! I am glad it resonated and helpful. You have asked a wonderful question. EMDR is extremely helpful with attachment trauma so it doesn’t have to be a single event. It is more often the case we are reprocessing years of childhood experiences from many forms of abuse and neglect. If you visit http://www.Emdria.org, you can find an EMDR therapist in your area or someone that offers it via teletherapy. I am cheering you on with your personal work! You are worth it! 💕
