The importance of knowing all eight phases of EMDR cannot be stressed enough; and I am here to help you with that. I know it can be overwhelming to “learn a new language” when first trained in EMDR. You might have had a successful practice or been in the mental health field for years before learning this technique, so we already have a great foundation onto which we can base your new skills in EMDR. Learning anything new takes time and a lot of practice, so let’s go through this together and I will help you apply this with your clients in a therapeutic and methodical way. Only after you learn the basic skills as taught in the first two weekend trainings will you be able to see how to branch out and individualize this therapy for all of your clients.
Once you have a confidence and competence in the standard EMDR protocol, you can begin to use consultation and trainings to broaden out your therapeutic horizons, perhaps to early developmental trauma, phobias, OCD, eating disorders, chronic pain and dissociation. It can be both an exciting and daunting thought to do this, but together let us consider the possibilities and how to appropriately apply these techniques. It is very important to be skilled in the basics before jumping to the advanced courses of EMDR, so let me help you build upon the basics to help you improve both your confidence and competence.
