Default First EMDR session-total bummer

Hi, my name is Ashley, I'm new to this board. I'm happy that I've come upon a place that can openly discuss our progress with EMDR. I've been seeing the same therapist now for about 2 months. He tells me we have all this "preliminary" work to do with my personality before we could progress with EMDR. I've tried every other form of psychotherapy out there, including hypnosis although the lack of finances have been sort of a hinderance. I had my first session of actual EMDR yesterday and these last two months I've been thinking that EMDR would be the "miracle" I was searching for, I have a lot riding on my mental health including gaining full custody of my son again. My therapist waived a pen back and forth in front of my face and I have to say nothing really happened. I have to go for now but does something start happening after time goes on? Did I pick the wrong target/trigger? My therapist was postive EMDR would help me but I'm really dissapointed. Thanks for your replies.
