Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello! Please remember that my response is for information only, we are not establishing a therapeutic relationship.
Hi --are you talking about DID or a related disorder?
how are you?
I'm fine, thanks! How are you today?
i am sure now i have dissoiated
and when i get out my house it goes away,because trauam happend here
10 guyes try to attackme 5 years ago
my q is
i used to take 1 tablet of remeron before emdr
That is horrible --no wonder you are having dissociation!
but after i did 8 sessions
of emdr with hypnosis
i start living the trauama more and more and more
i feel that emdr make my fear up to the surface
i make problem with the theripest because he was not good person
and stopped emdr
I'm sorry to hear that! Your therapist should be someone you can trust!
but now i feel the anixety increase
i feel everyone want to attck me
i feel all people want that
i feel the fear come on the surface
i know emdr should help me
how this happend?
I think we have chatted before ---weren't you going to move to Canada?
so i want to know what to do
Do you have a new therapist?
It sounds like you stopped in the middle of EMDR...before everything was processed through
That can be the most difficult place to stop, because then you are have the elevated fear, symptoms, etc.
so this is common?
Yes --EMDR can initially elevate the symptoms before they get worked through --because you've "stirred things up" without completing the entire process. Can you find another EMDR therapist where you are?
are you sure?
but he was doing emdr with hypnosis
so do i need emdr
or emdr with hypnosis?
I have not heard of someone mixing the 2 like that --just focus on finding a good therapist, one that can help you first process through what you experienced with this guy.
Then you can evaluate which might be better for you --hypnosis or emdr
Although it seems to me, that you started emdr, it would be good to finish it unless a there's a compelling reason not to --which a good therapist should be able to explain to you if that's the case.
but he take too much money from me
he did 20 sessions
and all of them was about 5
so i want to know usuelly how many sessions it needed?
what is the range?
That varies so much depending on the trauma and other factors --the range is one (minor, single incident trauma) to years (ongoing childhood abuse). When dissociation is occurring, therapy is generally longer term.
ok then in canada
first i have to find a theripest
i need what?
Above all, you need someone that you can trust and build a good working relationship with.
Focus on that
Their assessment of your situation and recommended treatment plan should make sense to you.
You need safety and help coping with the dissociation.
Then you can focus on finishing processing the trauma --in whatever form that takes.
do you recommend someone there?
I don't know anyone in Canada --you could try looking on the websites www.psychologytoday.com, www.therapytribe.com, or on the emdr website, www.emdr.com
You are welcome! Best wishes to you!
