@Ducktape hi I think it's a possibility more than a probability. I haven't heard of anyone trying this worth a try

I think it would be very dangerous to try EMDR on your own. I describe it as pulling the scabs off and letting the wound drain. It hurts like hell but needs to happen to heal. Opening up Pandora's Box without a professional to guide and support you .... the idea of that scares the hell out of me. I only do it because I trust my therapist.

My therapist let me know numerous times that EMDR will make things worse before it makes things better, so the guidance of a professional, particularly in the early stages of EMDR therapy, is vital. After doing EMDR for a few months my therapist let me know that I was ready to try it on my own, so it is possible, just after you've gone through the worst of it with an experienced professional.
