EMDR Preparation, Resources and Supports

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, distressed, tense or anxious?

EMDR therapy includes a component called resourcing.  Resourcing skills and techniques are practical ways to deal with difficult things.  The more you use resources, the more you will be able to tolerate stress, frustration, negative emotions or bodily sensations.

One such resource is called a light stream.
