Consultations for EMDR therapy trained clinicians pre and post training.

As a Facilitator for the EMDR Institute and EMDRIA Approved Consultant in EMDR, Basic Training consolation hours are provided here.

As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, Certification as well as Consultation-for-Consultation hours may be gained here.

EMDR and other clinical consultation is always available for you.

Consultation in EMDR therapy is provided in these four areas:

  1. Consultation that is required for each weekend of EMDR Basic Training. Ten hours for EMDR Institute or EMDR-HAP trainings or other EMDRIA Approved Training agencies are required to complete your training.
  2. Independent and on-going EMDR therapy consultation (or other consultation such as in domestic violence, child abuse, psychotherapy in general, ethical issues specifically, for example) tailored to you for your own professional enhancement specific to your own practice.
  3. Consultation to become Certified in EMDR therapy.
  4. Once Certified, you can seek Consultation-for-Consultation and earn your status as an EMDRIA Approved Consultant in EMDR therapy.

EMDR Basic Training Consultation is for those who have or are currently taking the Basic Training Weekend One and Two through the EMDR Institute or EMDR-HAP, or another EMDRIA Approved training agency.  Five hours of consultation is required before attending Weekend Two of the training.  Another five hours post Weekend Two is needed before your Basic Training in EMDR is considered complete. Then, you get a certificate of completion. To become Certified, however, is a different matter and requires a higher level of interest and committment.

Certification in EMDR therapy emphasizes practical applications toward mastering the eight phases and three prongs of EMDR therapy, taking you to a deeper and more thorough understanding of the applications of EMDR.

Consultation for those seeking to become¬†an Approved Consultant in EMDR therapy¬†is provided once you’ve become Certified in EMDR therapy. The bar of competence and mastery is even higher for Consultants.

General Consultation is also available offered to you to help you discover, cultivate, strengthen, and enhance your existing abilities in practice. Consultation can assist you in learning and integrating  the protocol into your practice and increase your client’s successful experiences of EMDR therapy Рwhether you are treating those affected by trauma, adverse life experiences in childhood and adulthood, domestic violence, child abuse and other traumas.

If you would like to discover if this is the right place for you, please call me for a brief and free Q&A. ¬†If all is good, your EMDR therapy consultation can be conducted by phone, in person, or by SKYPE/VSee, please call ¬†805 544-2273. Or you can email me by¬†clicking here.¬†¬†¬†Please leave your phone and contact information so I can call you back. Don’t text. Texts are not delivered so please do call instead.

A “Certificate of Completion‚ÄĚ is provided when you attend all hours of an EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training. This certificate is¬†not¬†the same as becoming ‚ÄúEMDRIA Certified‚ÄĚ in EMDR.

The definition of “Certified in EMDR” has been understandingly confusing. For more information on what role EMDRIA has in qualifying the statuses of licensed mental health professionals who are trained in EMDR therapy, please visit¬†www.emdria.org.

Consultation received here is aligned with EMDR therapy just as it was conducted in the 30+ controlled studies and 12+ nonrandomized studies that rightfully award EMDR therapy the empirically validated and A-rated status it has in the professional and scientific communities.

EMDR therapy is “client centered” meaning the client will never do or believe what is not true for them. Therapists do not tell the client what their goals, thoughts, beliefs, or desires should be.
