How does it work?
Let’s say that something tragic happened in John’s life when he was 5 years old. He saw something bad happen but couldn’t do anything about it, leaving him feeling scared and helpless. John didn’t get hurt physically, but he had some trouble sleeping and didn’t want to go to school for a while.
Now as an adult, when someone he cares about is struggling and needs help in a situation where he really can’t help, John gets an ache in his stomach, he has trouble sleeping and doesn’t want to leave the house.
EMDR can help John heal that childhood memory of feeling helpless so that he’s not affected by it in the present. In the future, he won’t feel so stressed when others need help, and he can respond as a reasonable, rational adult.
