Hypnosis or EMDR?
Many EMDR practitioners will tell you that EMDR and hypnosis are very different. In fact, the EMDR originators go to lengths to explain that they are not the same. However, as most hypnosis practitioners will tell you, EMDR is just one of many hypnosis techniques and that the process is the same regardless. It is true that many of the techniques used in EMDR were adapted from hypnosis techniques already in use, but are they similar beyond that?
