We provide accredited EMDR training for mental health professionals in the UK and Ireland, currently in Manchester, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Dublin and Belfast. Accreditation is from EMDR Europe Association, and also the EMDR Institute which has provided quality trainings worldwide from the early 1990s.
EMDR training equips mental health professionals to understand a client’s presenting problems as arising from adverse life experiences which are stored maladaptively as memory networks in the brain. By completing EMDR training, the professional can learn to identify which past memories can be targeted for reprocessing and help their client move these to adaptive memory storage. Ultimately, the client not only knows the event is in the past, it then also feels as if it is in the past.
