Talking about abuse in therapy

Talking about abuse in therapy

So I've alluded to my childhood sexual abuse in therapy. And I'm hardly comfortable with what I've shared. But my therapist wants to try some 'rapid eye movement' therapy or something similar to that but I don't know how to say I'm not ready for that. I'm super avoidiant of my abuse. I'm more then willing to wallow about it and feel bad for myself (which I know isn't good). But I'm so hesitant to talk about it in the therapy setting. So any advice?

I'm not ready to talk about it, or maybe it's just that I'm not willing, but I just don't know the best way to explain that to my therapist. Any thoughts?
