Brief, intensive EMDR therapy entails meeting for between one and four sessions of 2—3 hours in length. The advantage is that a lot may be accomplished in a short amount of time—sometimes in days or weeks vs. months or years. This model can be useful to help an individual—or a couple—become "unstuck," or as a stand-alone intervention when the issues are clearly defined.
CAVEAT: This model may be a companion to—but is not a substitute for—weekly therapy in cases of complex trauma or lifelong issues with numerous challenging relationships—matters that warrant ongoing therapy and support.
It is also not appropriate of you are in crisis or need more continuous, long-term treatment. If such issues surface in the course of the intensive therapy model, or it becomes clear that you need more continuity and support, then you will be advised to change to a conventional model of meeting with me or another therapist on an ongoing, weekly basis.
