I am appalied that a therapist would try to hug a client without permission and even more shocked that the therapist would yell at you. In my sessions, my therapist is very gentle, when I start to cry or feel the past emotions associated with abuse, she will encourage me by restating "this is only a memory, it is not happening now" She also explaned that the tears are necessary for healing. I have made great strives in my therapy and believe that EMDR has assisted me in letting go of the past abuse and moving on in my life journey. I encourage you to find a therapist who is supporttive. I believe that no therapist should ever ever ever yell at their client. this is ABUSE and not therapy.
