The Program:

The 48 hour EMDRIA approved curriculum assures participants the highest standard of training and includes 10 hours of group consultation. Both Part 1 and 2 training involve lectures, live demonstrations, video and individual supervised practice of EMDR Therapy.

Upon completion of both Part 1 & Part 2 and 10 hours consultation, participants receive a  EMDR Therapy Basic Training Certificate recognized by EMDRIA. EMDR Therapy Basic Training workshops are for clinical purposes only. They do not qualify participants to train others in EMDR.

The Trainers:

Brynah Schneider, Ph.D., C.Psych., is a registered psychologist in private practice in London ON since 1992. Brynah works with a wide range of therapeutic issues with a special interest in working with crisis, grief, loss, personal growth, posttraumatic stress, trauma and couples. She trained in EMDR Therapy in 1998 and is passionate about integrating this therapeutic approach into her practice. As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Trainer she supervises a number of clinicians working in both private practice and agency settings.

Kathy Karn, M.Ed., a Registered Psychotherapist in private practice since 1987 in London ON, is a Certified member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists with extensive training in many therapeutic interventions. Kathy is a Certified EMDR therapist, Approved Consultant and Trainer with the EMDR International Association. She has over 30 years experience planning & delivering personal development workshops both in Canada and internationally.

Both Kathy & Brynah have extensive experience with a variety of EMDR Therapy applications. Professional development in the field of EMDR has deepened their appreciation of the depth and breath of EMDR processing. Attendance at International EMDR conferences has enabled them to learn specific protocols in areas such as anxiety, panic, couple work, and migraines. Both Brynah and Kathy have done peak performance EMDR with members of Canadian national teams. Some of their specialized training will be introduced in their training curriculum.


The program is open to anyone with a minimum Masters level degree working in the mental health profession. A clinical background is a prerequisite for the effective application of EMDR Therapy treatment. Applicants must belong to a professional organization with a code of ethics. Private practice therapists must be licensed or certified with their professional organization. If a student, applicants must be enrolled in a Master's or Doctorate level program in the mental health field and currently involved in the practicum and/or internship portion of their program (first year students not eligible) and on a licensing track working under the supervision of a fully licensed mental health professional.


Both Kathy & Brynah give helpful feedback and encouragement. I enjoy their enthusiasm for the work and their passion for their clients.

There is optimal use presenting, video demos of really tough cases and situations, and live demonstrations that equipped us really well - I'm very impressed with this training!

A very concise and searing ability to conceptualize cases and steer EMDR therapists in a more effective direction.

Very thoughtful and compassionate to those of us who are beginning EMDR therapists. Able to hone in on the essence of a case and therapist interventions to provide excellent guidance.

Great insightful coaching. Excellent feedback - takes you to a new level of practice. Thanks!

Created a very open and comfortable setting within which one could share cases and reveal one's uncertainties and questions regarding EMDR therapy.

The instructors both demonstrated an openness and readiness to support and facilitate learning all the way through.

Brynah and Kathy are a dynamic duo in training together. They are passionate about EMDR therapy and the work they do and it shines through. Excellent teamwork!

Great caring instructors, attentive to the process, helpful instructions, good pacing. Lots of resource material for future reference.

Practicum assignments were well thought through and very useful. Everyone got a chance to experience the process from both client and therapist point of view.

Great training! Great fun! Very engaging despite a packed program and a packed weekend.

Five years ago this November I began my journey into becoming an EMDR therapist with Kathy & Brynah in London. It was by far the best training I have ever received and perhaps the best decision I have made for my practice. I practice the protocol regularly and to date with very good success.  Thank you for showing me the way to a truly transformative and evidence-based protocol. I love helping people release their stuck points and feel freer in the now.
