We’re thrilled with the feedback for our various EMDR Focus workshops, all with full-on, supervised practicum sessions to practice Attachment-Informed skills. A small selection of recent comments…

Dr Laurel Parnell EMDR Workshops UK

For someone who absolutely hates Marmite, I have to say I’m delighted to find I absolutely love Mark Brayne and his team…………what a remarkable training! I find my already impassioned enthusiasm for EMDR ignited even further by the last 3 days and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to Unleash Part II.

I cannot recall how many years it has been since I last felt this degree of excitement! Thank you all so much!

This really has reinforced my understanding and experience of EMDR: the power and potential of its application; how creatively and intuitively it can be applied; and how breaking free of certain limitations regarding the standard protocol is the next step in EMDR’s evolution.

I now feel I am considerably better equipped and informed than before the training, and can say, with a good deal of confidence, that I will be incorporating all that I have learned into my practice. The brilliant resourcing tools and revelatory application of the bridging back technique will become standard practice.

These three days were brilliantly conceived and presented, with just the right balance of teaching and practicum. I also think that spreading the training over three days broke it down into readily digestible, bite size, chunks, promoting the assimilation and retention of information…………superb!

What can I say! The humility and generosity of heart with which you laid yourself bare, identifying the two small t events, involving the video and momentary lapse of concentration when treating (volunteer demo client), were deeply moving, and served only to illustrate your humanity, and the robustness, resilience and wisdom, demanded of training of the quality provided by yourself and your team over the last three days.

Thank you all, I feel truly honoured and privileged to have been a participant and to have witnessed all that I have…………remarkable!


I would highly recommend Mark’s excellent training. A combination of theory, live demonstrations and supported practice, this training will take your EMDR practice to the next level and give you the confidence to further enhance positive outcomes with your clients. Definitely one of the best PDs I have attended.


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 to use the training some now and am starting to get more of a feel for it and have been able to see and hear feedback about the impact on clients. I’m amazed how much can be done in an hour and how contained it all is, even though it’s such core stuff. The relief for clients appears to be huge. I am starting to appreciate how important the petalling is (and why Mark emphasises that aspect) to the work remaining focused and containable and being able to complete so much so quickly. Also how well the resource team process appears to prime clients for being able to find helpful resolutions during the processing. I don’t use this with all my clients as not all are ready yet; for those who are ready this is like magic. I am kicking myself for not doing the training in 2010 when I first wanted to as life happened and then I didn’t follow it up. Big mistake!

“I’m so glad I did the part 1 – 3 days. The training was very clear and educational as well as fun; one of the best trainings I’ve done. I’ve been using the AI EMDR and IG emdr with a few clients now and the outcomes are truly amazing. Very powerful and deep transformation for the client within an hour with everything wrapped up and completed by the end of the session. That’s really something when the session can cover for example a present trigger, a 2 year old self, a 7 year old self, a parent of the 2 year old self, and that parent’s younger self, all 8 phases for each part of the work, all targets completed to 0/10, 7/7, and a clear body scan in an hour. This is a game changing protocol. A most heartfelt thank you from me and my clients.”


I am someone who has really struggled to get going with using EMDR regularly with my patients and clients. I would get hung up on the protocol, struggling with NCs and PCs and SUDs! The key thing I have taken away is this simplified protocol, the concept that it does not have to be difficult, the learning around how the left brain stuff (NCs, SUDs etc) interferes with the right brain process totally made sense and I can see where and why I have been stuck.

Thank you, I think this is really going to make my practice so much more effective for my clients and patients.
