Many of our clients were surprised to learn that therapists even prior to the Coronavirus were already providing EMDR services online. Much of the preparation needed for EMDR is done through careful discussions with your therapist about goals, trauma/stress targets, trauma maps, and shoring up internal resources. This is done without much change from in-person sessions.
The bilateral stimulation works quite well in an online format with traditional eye movements (visual bilateral movements), self-tapping (tactile bilateral stimulation) or with an inexpensive phone app and headphones (auditory bilateral stimulation). Your therapist will help you decide which modality is best for you. Both the research and our own anecdotal information from our clients indicate EMDR is remarkably effective in clearing trauma and distress from the nervous system when done online.
