Mary shares in Unfreezing Trauma: My Private Journal of EMDR Recovery her very personal experiences working to recover from multiple traumatic events.

She made breakthrough progress using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a powerful psychotherapy based on bilateral stimulation of the brain.

EMDR challenged Mary to go deep into some very dark places in a difficult journey and she shares her journal with commentary — a story that is sometimes joyous, often thrilling, and definitely inspiring.

Available in paperback and ebook.

In 16 EMDR sessions, Mary J. Held went from hiding out in her home, controlled by trauma, to a more active life full of joy. 

People suffering from PTSD or other traumatic damage will find in her story a compelling case for EMDR therapy and a source of hope. 

Mary shares the entry from her therapy journal for each session, followed by an account of how she felt, what she did, and what she experienced following the session.  

Therapist comments on each session lend a different perspective.
