In partnership with EMDR Focus, Dr Parnell has held four training events in advanced EMDR for complex trauma in London and York in September 2015 and 2017, and is now returning for a further practical three-day workshop in September 2018.

There’ll be space for 45 participants only, with live demonstrations and daily supervised practice in triads.

As with Laurel’s last workshop, in York last year, this London event has again sold out within two days of going live, and with the waiting list now also full, .

Those at the top of the list may well be able to join us as colleagues drop out (as they do), so if you’re reading this well into the spring or summer, we’re sorry that you will have missed out on this occasion, but may wish instead to consider Mark Brayne’s shorter Unleash the EMDR Magic weekend workshops on July 7/8 and Nov 24/25, going over the basic Parnellian principles of attachment-focused work.

Dr Laurel Parnell has pioneered EMDR for more complex clients, incorporating relational strategies to facilitate the long-term healing of childhood neglect, physical and sexual abuse, death and early loss, birth trauma, medical trauma, caregiver disconnection and vicarious trauma.

After this training you will:

  • Understand the foundational principles of Attachment-Focused EMDR, including safety, resourcing and creative imagination.
  • Be empowered as therapist efficiently to repair early developmental stages using imagination and bilateral stimulation.
  • Transform your EMDR targeting with the bridging technique to help clients overcome current symptoms.
  • Upgrade your interweaves to better handle dissociation, phobias, grief, loss and addictions.
  • Leave with new techniques to structure your sessions and unblock blocked processing.


If you need to cancel, and we can secure a replacement delegate, we will refund your fee in full.

If no substitute can be found, cancellations up to six weeks before the training will be refunded minus a 10% handling charge. After that point, without someone else to take the place, there will be no refund.
