Therapy: A frozen part

In therapy today a younger part came out. She’s 12. And she was frozen. She couldnt feel her body, she couldnt find her words. She was completely frozen and unable to talk or describe how she was feeling.
Eileen was very helpful. She asked me to give my care and attention to this frozen part. We did the butterfly hug, which is an EMDR exercise and while I tapped on my body Eileen played a sound and I brought up the feelings associated with the younger part.
That was tough, very very tough.
But in a way it was also good. After a few minutes of doing this the young part began to feel a little better, she began to relax.
I started to show her some things, like our house, our family, our life now. She was stuck back in the past so she didnt realise how our life is now.
I think it was a positive experience for her. She seemed very curious.
A lot of other stuff happened during our sessions today, which I will write about later on when I have a little more time to process it.
