Self-guided therapy is a gift

I have PTSD and was an ER doctor for 15 years, the last 10 as an attending physician in a level 1 trauma center. I also flew Life Flight helicopter a couple of times a month for several years.
It makes me shake my head when therapists comment on your Facebook ads that it's dangerous to do EMDR without the support of a therapist.
Some of my trauma came from therapists!
I am completely phobic about therapy, so being able to do EMDR without a therapist is a gift.
No judgement, no wondering about whose stuff we are talking about, no manipulation.
I tried the sample Virtual EMDR program and found it helpful for bringing up negative emotions.
It was enough to see that it might be helpful to do more.
