Clinicians seeking EMDR basic training consultation and certification are required to work with an  EMDRIA-approved consultant. As part of our efforts to expand education on EMDR, we offer the opportunity to work with Suzanne Muirheid, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Facilitator with the EMDR Institute.

Suzanne has extensive training in the use of EMDR with a specialty focus in Ego State Therapy and parts work, PTSD and complex trauma (C-PTSD), dissociative disorders and attachment trauma.

EMDR training from Suzanne is completed at your own pace. As a recognized expert in EMDR therapy,  she can help you through the certification process and guide you to a level where you are competent in implementing EMDR techniques at all levels.

Suzanne is accepting new consultees at all experience levels for consultation and can provide approved hours for the following:

  • Clinicians who are attending Basic Training with the EMDR Institute (10 hours)

  • Clinicians seeking EMDR certification from EMDRIA (20 hours)

What is EMDR Certification?

EMDR Certification is an advanced level of training and experience in EMDR therapy that goes beyond the basics. It offers a higher level of expertise compared to EMDR Basic Training.

As overseen by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) in the USA and Canada, this specialized credential requires additional training and experience beyond the foundational EMDR Basic Training.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which is used in many treatments today for symptoms of trauma, PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorders, along with a wide range of psychological symptoms.

Benefits of EMDR Certification

This certification serves as a testament to your exceptional skills and proficiency as an EMDR therapist. It demonstrates your dedication to continuous learning, integrity, and advanced therapeutic abilities.

For private practitioners, it showcases your qualifications and competency. EMDR Certification positions you as a leading practitioner among your colleagues and within the organization.
