Eye Movement De-sensitisation & Re-processing (EMDR) Therapy


My 15 year old girl has been recommended EMDR therapy (often used for post-traumatic stress disorder) as she has been unable to go to school/ballet classes for almost 2 years and has anxiety (but only certain things trigger it).

I just wondered if anyone else had experience of this type of therapy?

Thank you.
