Consultation for completing the basic training

You will be going through a learning curve as you start to master the EMDR method. For this reason, Melody provides consultation support that encourages learning the basics of the method, ensuring you have the foundational knowledge to achieve your EMDRIA-approved basic-level EMDR certificate. Melody can provide up to 10 hours of training to help you achieve your basic training certificate. This basic training certification can be completed with written approval by the EMDRIA-approved consultants who are providing your basic training.

Consultation for clinicians that want to become certified in EMDR therapy

Now that you have achieved your basic training, CONGRATULATIONS! If you want to continue to grow through the stages of learning in the EMDR method, the next step is to become certified. How do you do this? See the EMDRIA website for details.

If you choose to work with Melody for clinical practice and to achieve your certification, you need to provide a case presentation, sample recordings of your work, or transcripts depicting your skills as an EMDR therapist. These work samples are used as a guild to review your understanding of the EMDR method. This type of consultation allows for the support needed to become a certified EMDR therapist and, at the same time, has an evaluative nature to it. Melody’s job as a consultant is to ensure you are competent in this method, as she will be endorsing you to EMDRIA. For this reason, when Melody has seen your competency in the case presentation, sample recordings, or transcripts, a letter will be sent on your behalf to EMDRA.

Melody can help you complete your minimum 15 hours of consultation training. You will need a total of 20 hours to become certified. Five of your total hours must be completed with approved EMDR consultants. We can also make arrangements for an EMDR consultation group. If you are interested in doing a group consultation, please contact us at 403-917-0764.

Please note once you and Melody have agreed to start a consultation, a contract will be signed. This contract must be signed and received before beginning consultation or tracking any consultation hours toward your certification.

If you decide to move forward on the path to mastering EMDR, we are pleased to accompany you in your EMDR journey. Thanks for choosing to work with us as your consultant. We will review EMDR therapy procedural steps, the eight phases, the AIP model, and more. Melody is committed to supporting you in achieving your highest goals as an EMDR therapist or as an EMDR consultant.

Call or email Melody today to discuss your consultation needs.
