I've recently had 2 emdr sessions which involved resource installation. Both sessions began with using regular emdr to target a memory and we then switched to the resource installation. We did more of the resource installation than anything else. The week following the 1st session was a good one for me, positive, less anxiety etc. The week following the 2nd session has been a crazy one, some really down moments, an emotional roller coaster it seems, headache every 2nd day (I never get a headache). Last session we did not do any emdr, therapist tried to keep the stress down as I had had a very stressful week. I have a headache again today! What is going on here? I understood that resource installation was a more positive experience and, I guess, I expected the side effects to be more pleasant. Is this an expected reaction to resource installation? I know the regular emdr process can trigger some unpleasant responses, but how about the resource installation? I have contact with my therapist, he is aware of what has been happening. I'd just like to hear what others have experienced, get more information.
