Default EMDR and dreams?

Anyone? Does your therapist want to discuss them with you?

I just started EMDR again. Only had one session as I had to title every single trauma event I felt still gives me emotions when I think about them.

Any who.....I had a dream about Lucifer depicted as a black goat standing on its hind legs. I know this is a common picture of how he is depicted. In my dreams I saw it as a picture in a very old book.

Yes, I think the EMDR is helping you to let go of certain negative aspects of yourself, symbolized as the devil in your dream.

This is easy to just google and read articles on EMDR. You wont go right into it anyway. They have to install Resource Imagery like Safe space and containment. That can take many sessions.

Just had my second emdr appointment, opened up a can of worms, reliving the past for another hour is not my idea of fun.
Last week was bad but this week I cried and sobbed like a baby.....
Dr kept saying go to your safe place but by then nowhere in my head was safe.
Session ended with the Dr telling me I should go to the police about my past. I went there for help not advice , if I go to the police then my family would find out about my past as would the rest of the village that I live in. Then my demon wins again.
