Why Include EMDR Therapy to your Repertoire?

  • likelihood of increased confidence and adaptive daily living;
    more hope for the future, and
  • a clearer sense of their own healing power.

EMDR Therapy training may be covered by government funding

Since 2011, the Ontario Ministry of Health and The Canadian Department of Defense have provided funding for EMDR training for programs delivered by the NSTC:

  • The Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Treatment Centres in Ontario hospitals have over 50 staff members trained,
  • The Primary Health Care Services of Peterborough (a network of Family Health Teams servicing 113,000 patients in that city) also commissioned a Ministry-funded EMDR training, and
  • We have now delivered courses to three Canadian Forces Bases, training base clinical staff who work with our service men & women and their families.

The clients/patients of these programs now have access to publicly-funded EMDR.

An added benefit for private-practice clinicians… EMDR is marketable!

The word catches on quickly – physicians & other referral agents and satisfied clients are enthusiastic about EMDR for its efficiency as well as effectiveness. You will recoup your course fee in short order.
