You may have come across EMDR therapy in professional or media articles, and wanted to know more. Or you may have heard from colleagues and clinical supervisors how EMDR therapy has been transforming their work with their patients. If you are curious to find out if you too could change your practice with EMDR therapy, and work more successfully with your clients across all presentations, do read on.

Training in EMDR Therapy

The 2-Part EMDR therapy Basic training is where you begin to learn and master this unique and powerful psychotherapy. Training in EMDR therapy is an experiential process, in which lectures, video-taped segments of EMDR Therapy sessions and participants’ own supervised practice as both therapists and clients throughout the training, are designed to give you a comprehensive and first-hand understanding of this approach. During the course of the Part 1 and Part 2 Basic training courses participants learn a broad range of EMDR therapy applications to enable them to begin to use EMDR Therapy immediately after the training with different clients and issues.

Our aim is for participants to leave the training with confidence and a clear understanding of what we do in EMDR therapy, how we do it, and why.

Entry criteria 

The eligibility criteria for attending the EMDR therapy training are outlined by the NZ EMDR Association here . If you are unsure whether your professional training meets these requirements, do get in touch with the details of your professional registration and CV to inquire.


Part 1 and Part 2 of the Basic EMDR Training are 3 days each, starting at 8:30am and finishing at 17:00. Whilst we endeavour to complete each day on time, it is possible that practicums or demonstrations may take longer than anticipated, hence finishing the day later. Participants must be present during all lectures, videos and demonstrations. Attendance certificates cannot be issued if these requirements are not met. Any travel, childcare commitments, work related calls, etc. should not take place during training times. If you are unable to commit to the full 3 days of the training then it is probably best not to pursue registration at this time.

Still contemplating? you might find the following brief videos useful, about the cost effectiveness of EMDR therapy, EMDR as an early intervention, EMDR with children and young peopleEMDR in the treatment of depression, of chronic pain and of combat-related PTSD.
