Default Alternative to talk therapy?

Talk therapy has not worked for me, but the depression is starting to come back. Medications have also not worked, so I don't want to try that anymore, either.

I've read about something called EMDR therapy. Has anyone heard of this or have experience with it? I'd be interested in knowing how it's worked for you.

Thanks.

EMDR is good for people with PTSD, so if your depression is related to trauma it might help, it's important to go to someone who has done the right training though, it's very specific, based on neourological research
