Course Reviews of Sara Gilman's OnDemand EMDR and Performance advanced course

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”
