Welcome to EMDR Focus

A warm welcome to our EMDR Focus website, building on the powerful work of pandemic years online with some of our favourite coastal pictures (two from our home in Sheringham, North Norfolk, and the third our stunning new lighthouse graphics) as frontpage banners.

With the pandemic with luck now behind us, we’re now focusing tightly on our popular Unleash Your EMDR workshops Parts 1 and 2 and developing a well-established series of two-hour Wednesday morning (UK/AUS timing) and now also Thursday afternoon (UK/US times) monthly live sessions, where Attachment-Informed EMDR can be experienced and explored for real.

Please do browse the website using the dropdown menus at the top, and hoping also you enjoy the image on the left of Jutta and Mark at Bluff at the bottom end of New Zealand/Aotearoa in March 2016, at the end of an epic 3000-km six-week tandem ride from Cape Reinga at the very other north end of NZ.

Bilateral teamwork!

Though if you’re thinking of joining us on a workshop, please be advised we’re taking a six-month sabbatical from Easter 2023 on the same tandem, now electrified, to pedal all around Germany and the Southern Baltic.

Excellent and captivating content and training. Not many 3-day trainings can keep me engaged the way these trainings do!

Mark’s knowledge, facilitation style and passion for EMDR [have] transformed my EMDR overnight and reignited my passion for it after it was slowly draining away through being frustrated by the

Since completing the training (Nov 2019) I’m witnessing some absolutely brilliant results. Each and every one of my clients now has a resource team, which they think is excellent by


The wealth of resources accessible is very helpful. It did feel like a ‘proper’ training and very useful. Your training was well managed, nice flow to the day, info, demo,

Inspiring stuff ! It has shown me how to use EMDR in creative ways to help clients with processing difficulties.


This weekend has been the most significant training I have attended in my career! The possibilities for healing old wounds in my clients are endless, the best part is this


Mark, you are SO good at what you do, and I think I will be longing to be half as good as you for years to come. Thank you for

The training was intense and enlightening in ways I could not have imagined when I booked and at last I have a way to work effectively and without scaring the

Thank you to EMDR Focus for the incredibly helpful training and practise day in London this September. I have subsequently had some incredible sessions using the modified protocol and being


Mark’s enthusiasm and depth of knowledge [about Dreams] inspires and lead us on a journey of exceptional learning. Dreams are indeed the royal road into our internal psyche and Mark


This training is the missing link between EMDR standard protocol training and the intricacies of complex trauma EMDR practice. Evolution happens and trying to deny it just delays our illusion


My memory from the original training was that EMDR was a rigid robotic like model in its implementation, which didn’t resonate with me. A refresher training some years later opened

I had one client who had really struggled to develop a peaceful image that really felt safe  – today she imagined being gently licked and lovingly encapsulated by a lion, protected by

I saw seven clients today, and I have to say that I brought so much of the training into the day and with really great effect.


I was absolutely exhausted after 3 days of training & never felt more inspired in a long time in my work.

Learning how to resource so quickly [was especially useful]. I had been taking a lot longer to do this and it’s great to know if can be done fairly quickly

Even in one week the benefits I am seeing are amazing. Using the nurturing, protector and wise figures really helps the clients and they are reporting spontaneous “appearances” of the

It was just the most incredible weekend, absolutely life changing personally and professionally. It has changed and shaped my EMDR practice for ever more. Thank you!

The ability to use both this protocol & the standard one has been so incredibly useful & I wish I had done this training several years ago.


I have been blown away by your training, Mark. Having now completed Part 1, 2, AI-EMDR with couples, Case Conceptualisation (and intending to attend Parts in December), I am aware


From the EMDR focus attachment training I have learnt so much. I completed part one and part two this year. It has absolutely transformed my practice. An analogy would be


Grateful to your leadership, guidance, and support during this time. Online EMDR has been working awesome!! I am so pleased with the timing when I attended your workshop in London.

I think anyone working with EMDR and complexity should do this training (Jan 2020).


Excellent (couples) course, loved how the AI-EMDR couple protocol dovetails so productively with Imago therapy/the CCPE approach to couple therapy. EMDR can be used to alleviate barriers to empathy and


This was probably the best CPD I’ve done. Mark is such a fantastic trainer. A little fast for me on Day 1, but the ideas really landed with me on


Astonishing clearly presented. Inspirational training. Goes to the core, reaches the places that talking therapy just can’t reach. This will change my practice forever! Thank you SO much

Julie (March 2023)

I had been integrating EMDR with attachment in my own way but your approach is a gamechanger and it allows me to integrate EMDR and attachment work in a way

Excellent training and incredibly practical and useful. Mark was very clear, compassionate and entertaining.


I thought I’d share some feedback I just sent to Mark on the wonderful training he gave in New Zealand a few months ago For context I’ve had the chance


I am so glad I volunteered for the demo for two very specific reasons – for myself and also for my practice as an EMDR therapist. As a therapist, the
