Not specifically but as far as I’m aware it has trauma as the route course so I imagine resolving the trauma would help therefor emdr would be useful

I believe that. I wish NHS offer EMDR therapy! I am searching for one, and it is expensive though

Nhs do offer emdr therapy in some areas but like everything its a postcode lottery. It’s usually offered as a specialist therapy once you reach the trauma specialist stage of treatment though and not as a first line response.

I have trauma secondary in my life to schizophrenia (this means even if the trauma didn't occur, it was highly likely I would have developed schizophrenia anyway). I attempted EMDR with who I thought was a qualified therapist. In actual fact, she'd never done it before and it ended very badly with me suffering a lengthy psychotic break requiring hospitalisation.

you mean, she is inexperienced in trauma approaches? Is she a private EMDR therapist or from NHS?

Past 20 years the injection of Flupentixol 240mg is not keeping the symptoms away. There were chains of trauma before hearing voices. Taking antidepressants for a long time. And became high dose of insulin dependant. Continue appetites and sugar cravings.
Don't know how much emdr is going to help? Finding a therapist is another challenge. Can GP get one for the complex issue.
rTMS is another treatment is considered, don't now NHS is providing?
