Is emdr the best therapy for PTSD? I was the victim of a violent home invasion 2 months ago and I can see that I am not getting over this in fact I am getting worse. My GP has prescribed me with Xanax but I am not sure I want to go down that road if I can avoid it.

Loren Gelberg-Goff Says...

I am so sorry for this experience in your life... EMDR has been shown to help people get past trauma as has EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)  Deciding what therapy is best often depends on what symptoms you are having since that traumatic event.  Anxiety, panic, nightmares, etc... If you haven't spoken with a therapist yet, that might also be a good place to start to really assess the best intervention... Hypnotherapy can also be effective.  You have options, as long as your goal is to take back your power.  Neurofeedback can also be very helpful in overcoming the stress/anxiety reactions that your body and mind are experiencing. 

I hope that these suggestions are helpful to you.  I wish you success in overcoming this trauma.  Loren (www.beingwellwithin.com)
