Healing emotional trauma
With EMDR, help is in the eye of the beholder Christine Baird (not her real name) never had reason to distrust her husband of 22 years. So when he confessed to an affair, Baird plunged into four months of sleeplessness, anxiety and despair. "I couldn't see the future as holding any hope for me," says Baird, 49. What she didn't know was that she was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition associated with sexual assault victims and war veterans. Counseling didn't help, and Baird was referred to Glenis Holmes, a therapist trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It's a technique Baird says helped turn her life around.
