    It's exposure therapy and I doubt whether a squint would effect that. He can see and that is the main thing.
    EMDR can be very effective, although it's not a quick fix, but I think you are aware of that already.
    The positive will be if your son agrees to not self harm, it's like making a deal. If he agrees, it will show he is willing to get the help he needs.
    It must have been an exhausting day for you both and you had storm Brendan to deal with too.
    Pleased you both back safely. xx

    Thanks for the explanation, Carnation. I know nothing about EMDR (fortunately for me) but am pleased that my son will be getting this treatment from someone so specialised. It's not available on the NHS in our area so it will be expensive but it has to be tried at least xx

    Glad you're both back and progress has been made - I'm really happy your son's willing to make an agreement like that in order to get the help he needs.

    There's plenty on here about EMDR with good results.
    No doubt you'll have a search and gather info from the real people that have gone through the same thing.
    It's so disappointing that the NHS don't provide this for you when we are supposedly getting more support with mental health.
    But it is what it is, so it has to be dealt with.
    It's something to hope for, for your son and maybe now he's in the door, a relationship can be built and worked on.
    Self harming is normally a cry for help and loathing of his state, so if he can feel there's something positive happening to relive that, then there's definitely light at the end of the tunnel. xx

    Just as well Pulisa, bloomin freezin tomorrow.

    Has EFT been mentioned for your son. I think it could be quite beneficial and it's something he could do by himself. x

    No it hasn't yet. It would be an alternative to pulling his teeth out!

    Re: hugs

    It might be worth a go. EFT is supposed to be good for emotional relief so maybe it could be an outlet? The NHS was doing research into using it when I remember reading their proposed studies a couple of years ago (it was nurses recommending it's use in a clinical setting) but I haven't followed it up.
