Course Details

EMDR Intensives are a powerful resource for clients to be able to get movement in specific areas in a short amount of time. They can be an effective way to get quick results. They can also be a great method for growing your business, working with ideal clients, and increasing your business income without taking on more clients. While they aren’t the right fit for all clients, they can be incredibly rewarding for you and the right caseload.
