Hi everyone. I'm thinking about EMDR therapy for my ten year old son. I don't want to get into the details but I'm concerned about him. I know that this is a crucial age and I'd like to nip some of his emotional issues in the bud. I was actually just looking for a male therapist for him. There's not many to pick from here. The one that I found is trained in this therapy and suggested it for my son. I've watched some testimonials on YouTube and it looks pretty effective. But I was wondering if anyone here had any first hand experience?

Libra Noir, I've done it.  It's very powerful and will stir up a lot. It's helped me.

It can give you nightmares as your brain rewires itself. Three days after my first session I had the worst nightmare of my life. I was also  advised to be careful crossing the street right after and I found that to be very good advice as I misjudged a light at a crossing. 

I think it's worth trying.

I think you'll find out if it's effective.

 

There is also somatic experiencing, neurofeedback, EFT, and lots of other therapies and techniques depending on his issues, but from what I've learned (and I coach on this), one thing may work wonders for someone and not another. Or work temporarily, and then another style of therapy can be brought in.

Great that you're nipping it in the bud, momma.

Thanks capdb. It does sound like it at least can't hurt him. He also wants to play football this fall which (although I have my reservations because I have a fear that it can hurt him), I think might help direct some of his emotions and increase his self confidence. We will see.

I would do it just for the heck of it LN.

I have kinda done it using a tapping video, I found it helped me but after the first time I couldn't do it for a few weeks because it was a bit much. I guess I was not a good candidate to do it alone 🙂

Yes I figure it can't hurt. But I know this is a crucial time and also don't really want to fuck around, so to speak. It's 100 bucks an hour, which is ok (I'm making good money right now), but it sounds like the kind of thing that works quickly if it does work. And if it doesn't, it's pretty easy right off the bat. I'm also pretty blessed when it comes to choosing professional help. I always seem to find  the best, most compassionate people. I credit prayer for that.
