Leading Edge Workshops

Our EMDR Focus workshops give you new opportunities to advance your practical and client-focused skills with EMDR in the UK – and now, excitingly, in Australia and New Zealand as well. Led by facilitators Mark Brayne & Dr Laurel Parnell.

EMDR Supervision

We’re committed to a model of supervision which encourages warmth and dance in support of your journey towards EMDR mastery, while respecting and honouring the structure and focus of EMDR’s Standard Procedural Steps.

Adjunctive EMDR

EMDR can be very successfully used alongside/in parallel with a client’s other mainstream therapy, as long as this is done with a clear focus and time-limited frame, and with full transparency and agreement between both therapists. 

EMDR with Couples

Using EMDR with Skype, and especially with couples, has been some of the most rewarding therapeutic work I’ve ever done. If you’re OK with the technology and are couples-trained, give it a go. If the former not the later, then risk it with an individual. If neither, get a colleague to introduce you to the simplicity of Skype.

Online EMDR Therapy

Online EMDR therapy can offer clients more choice, as it helps overcome geographic and logistical constraints.  Whilst some therapists might find it less satisfying than in-person sessions, it can nonetheless feel very close and intimate.
