Tonight's special guest is Carolyn Robinson from Dorset and London in the United Kingdom, an incest survivor and author of the book "The Silent Amongst Us" which is available through her web site. Carolyn's not only an incest survivor but she's battled bulimia, a drinking problem and countless bouts of anxiety depression and PTSD. "In fact," she says, "I was at the 'last chance saloon' when my mental health team asked if I'd like to try EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy) currently being used to treat the armed forces suffering with PTSD." She goes on, "I agreed. I went and sneaked in a tape recorder so I could record each live session because I was adamant that if I was going to go through all this to get to the root of my problems I was going to share it to help and inspire others." Carolyn has certainly succeeded! She's become a big advocate for the use of EMDR. "The journey was dark and harsh but worth it. I believe EMDR should be readily available as a counseling option and I'm going to campaign to raise awareness about it." Carolyn's "The Silent Amongst Us" is an inspirational book which has been written to help others. It is a real life account of the dark of journeys she traveled as the memories of her past were unlocked. Incest, she points out, is perhaps the most heinous of betrayals. "I want my story to be a message to people who have had this hurt in their lives - it’s not too late, you can have a life, a happy life. Just make sure you get the help you need."
