Course Reviews

“Very helpful and informative materials presented. I will be utilizing skills and techniques taught immediately. ”

“Loved this training. Very helpful to my current practice in several ways.”

“Dynamic presenter. Great and applicable strategies.”

“Very good trainer and training. User friendly platform”

“Excellent speaker and presentation. Very informative and interesting content.”

“It was so good! I work in collegiate athletics and am almost certified in EMDR. I was hoping to find an EMDR workshop on performance and I did! Thank you so much!”

“One of the best trainings since initial EMDR training. As I begin to implement performance enhancement into my private practice, I learned so much that I have not implemented into my practice that would be a great benefit. Understanding heart rate variability and some of the skills taught has equipped my tool box to another level.”

“To be fair, some of this was obvious to me. However, I absolutely love the introduction to heart mapping / HRV. Because of this training, I started using it and my clients love. I agree with the presenter that at the end of the day I feel way more energized after practicing heart mapping. I also feel this presentation was empowering to EMDR practitioners, get out there and safely be creative. Lastly, I kept thinking of the body keeps score. So cool how presenter touched on storing audio trauma, trauma can be stored in so many different ways. All in all I am giving it a 5. Thank You!”

“An amazing training, chock full of relevant information. I've been working with performers using EMDR since 2008 and I still learned some really great stuff. HRV training up next!!”
