    Hi Sam, 

    EMDR does work! I would highly recommend it. Depending on how deep the trauma is stored you may need a few sessions.

      Great! You're so welcome.

      You should also check out something called TRE which stands for Trauma Release Exercises, it's been well known to be used with PTSD with soldiers and has worked very well.
