It’s been 10 years since I wrote EMDR Essentials: A Guide for Clients and Therapists, and I can hardly believe what has happened since then. I wrote this book because I kept hearing from therapists that they didn’t know how to explain EMDR therapy to their clients and felt there wasn’t anything good that they could give to clients to help them understand this powerful modality. I resisted writing this book wondering if I had anything to say, but something inside me said you just have to do it. What a learning process that was for me. But the thing that touched me the most is that when I approached my clients to share their stories for the book, they gladly offered their experiences to share so that others could relate to what they experienced and how they got help and felt real change.
