What is Consultation?

Consultation is one of the best ‘next steps’ for clinicians who have completed Basic Training in EMDR Therapy. It is through the consultation relationship that newly trained EMDR Therapists expand their practical knowledge and strengthen their clinical skills. It is also how you gain hours towards becoming a EMDR Certified Therapist.
