    The Story


    When I was going through my own healing journey, there were times that the time between the EMDR sessions with my therapist seemed too long. I couldn't afford to do sessions more frequently, and even though I got so much benefit from each session, there were times when my suffering between sessions seemed unbearable. I needed a lot of help at times and I couldn't seem to wait for my next session. I wanted to get out of that dark place faster. I wanted to be free of the suffering and so with the help of my EMDR therapist, I began to do my own self-sessions in between.


    As I became an EMDR therapist myself, I fine-tuned the technique. When I saw similar signs of suffering in some of my clients I began to teach them how to heal faster using EMDR themselves between sessions. Over the years, as my practise filled and my waitlist got longer, and the waitlists of my trusted colleagues got longer, I realized there were many people who we had to turn away but who still really needed help.


    After teaching dozens of clients how to perform EMDR on themselves between sessions, I created the comprehensive course for self-healing using EMDR.


    In the fall of 2018, I began running the live version of the course as an intensive healing experience in Toronto, Canada. I taught people how this miraculous therapy works in the brain to create permanent healing changes based on the latest medical research, and how to administer a simplified version of the technique on themselves.


    At that time the didactic learning portion of the course and the group practicum of learning how to master the technique together and experience massive shifts in healing were run together.


    As the course was so successful from feedback from participants, and since my practice has been also online and global for years, the natural evolution was to start running online live versions of the course and practicum to international participants, which I began in the fall of 2019.


    In order to make the course more affordable for more people, I created a pre-recorded version, which split the didactic learning portion of the course from the online live practicum version. I published the online pre-recorded version of the course in 2020.


    I expanded the didactic learning portion of the course that has been pre-recorded to include special guides on how to perform the technique so that the whole process can be learned without the need for further assistance, making the course a completely comprehensive guide to using EMDR for self-healing.


    For those who complete the comprehensive EMDR online pre-recorded course and want further hands-on guided practise or to troubleshoot and master the technique, I run live online group practicum intensives.


    In order to be eligible to apply to one of the live practicums, participants must have completed the online pre-recorded comprehensive EMDR course as the basics of the technique are not covered but rather we dive right in and practise together. The group practicums are supervised self-emdr sessions, with breaks approximately every 10 minutes for questions and optional sharing with the group. (This is not group therapy but self-healing done in an online group setting). The group practicums follow the same format as the previous live in-person and live online courses, for which I have gotten excellent positive feedback.

    In this course you will learn:
    • All about the science, application, and practise of EMDR, a scientifically proven method for healing Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder (PTSD), with widespread applications in resolving many conditions and symptoms caused by psychological trauma such as depression, anxiety, excessive anger, feeling stuck, feeling out-of-control, feeling "messed up" or "broken", loss, grief, and physical illnesses and pain associated with unresolved trauma such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivities, and irritable bowel syndrome, for example.
    • How to process actual triggers and symptoms, with the option to do so under the guidance of a professional
