EMDR for post-cult trauma?
Posted by: happytown ()

I'm in therapy after experiencing extreme trauma from time in a spiritual group.

A few people have recommended this EMDR for trauma. But my therapist said for this kind of complex emotional trauma its not really effective.

Does anyone have a second opinion or experience on this?

Can't move most days. When I do get out of the house I return triggered and exhausted. I'm slowly getting better and looking for ways to support myself.

Many thanks

I have been there . I dont recommend emdr dear one
It tsmds time to recover from trauma . Take it one day at a time . I was in a cult for 30 years .just 5 years ago i bro,e free . At first i felt alone .
Thought God hated me or i did something wrong
Dont worry we are here for you . Thousands post on here
And im kinda new here too , but im glad to meet others
And to know i am not alone ...

Take baby steps , one day at a time , take up a hobby
Tslk to others that have been there , it took me almost 5 years to even be bold to talk about it .

Good luck your in my thoughts and prayers
