Laurel Parnell and Mark Brayne at the first Parnell Institute Conference, Scotts Valley California, Dec 2017

Following Dr Laurel Parnell’s sold-out workshops in the UK in 2015 and 2017 on Attachment-Focused EMDR, these London weekend workshops offer a detailed introduction to the principles of using EMDR at relational and attachment depth with complex clients, and – unique to these courses – a practical and supervised chance to test the skills for yourself.

Open to psychotherapists and counsellors trained at least to Part 3 level in basic EMDR, the weekends are led by EMDR-Europe Accredited Consultant and Parnell Institute Training Facilitator Mark Brayne.

Feedback from our last workshop April 7/8.

Brilliant! I was staggered at the speed of the modified / simplified protocol.

Plenty of opportunity to practise and get your teeth into the process.

I’d like to say a big thank you for the weekend. Your passion and enthusiasm is contagious and your knowledge incredible. I feel a lot more confident to use an attachment-focused approach.

It was a wonderful and inspiring weekend – learning on so many levels, and this approach certainly expands the possibilities for EMDR within psychotherapy.

Approaching EMDR from the perspective of transpersonal psychotherapy, we explore and practice the use of creative imagination in resourcing clients who present with dysfunction rooted in experiences of childhood, and, especially, the importance of an attachment-focused identification of key targets for EMDR processing .

The weekend offers a space to build on the fundamental skills of what was learned in basic training (Francine Shapiro’s Adaptive Information Processing Model AIP, with its eight-phase treatment structure and the three prongs of past, present and future), highlighting also the importance of creative interweaves and of session structure in working with intuition and with client-centred flexibility.

CCPE London, W2 6NE

With a maximum of just 36 places, and meeting in the beautiful ballroom of the CCPE on the Grand Union Canal just north of Paddington station, the weekend explores key elements of creative and attachment-focused resourcing, bridging and interweaves, with a live demonstration session and discussion of attachment-focused EMDR in practice.

On Sunday, participants have the opportunity to practise with each other in dyads/pairs, both as therapist and client, with proactive supervision from our experienced team of EMDR Focus- and Parnell Institute-trained Facilitators.
