Rapid Eye Movement Desensitization....if I have my letters in the right order.

Yesterday my therapist used some of this technique to help me with guided imagery. Being depressed I couldn't think of a safe place. I don't feel really safe right now...not suicidal...just not comfortable and safe. So my therapist guided me to a safe place. I found it at home today in my chair for 15 minutes. Not a bad first try.

The last therapist that tried it used tapping. She was next to a noisy office of men and I didn't feel safe there anyway, so it just didn't work.

I really liked the guided imagery. I felt more relaxed after I did that.
Then he used the light bar. I can see how this is really going to help me.
I am excited to use this REMD!!

    That is wonderful, Angie! Just like the doTERRA Oils sometimes it takes a combination of things.
    Don't give up!

    Hoping to hear your story of success with that! I tried it, just once, but I did not care for the therapist too much and could not close my eyes in her office for similar reasons to yours. Good luck!
