I had problems with EMDR not done correctly


New Here
I had a therapist do EMDR and not follow the protocols, particularly did not use a safe place. I got flooded with memories. Other therapists all said she didn't follow the protocols. Eventually, less flooded. Used EFT tapping more recently.
Sorry, I know from experience how awful that can be. Did EMDR with a therapist once (wasn't the first time but discontinued my previous therapy before that), he was nice but the EMDR went COMPLETELY sideways and I remember walking out of the session still half in my trauma-daze, it wasn't a great experience. Given that it's trauma not having a safe space can evoke so much bad feelings. Hope you'll have a better experience in another setting going forward
