The Safe Space exercise can help you deal with intrusive thoughts between EMDR sessions by providing a sense of emotional safety and security. This exercise can help to create a calming and comforting environment to help reduce the intensity of intrusive thoughts. You can create a safe space in your mind or in a physical space. This exercise can help you feel grounded and connected to a safe place within yourself. Visualization is a key part of this exercise and can help you to focus on the positive aspects of your safe space and push away negative intrusive thoughts.
You may be looking for a way to overcome trauma and emotional distress, either for yourself or for someone close to you. EMDR therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option, and it can help you start to heal and make progress in your life. But it can be hard to know where to start.
