EMDR therapy can be practiced by licensed mental health professionals, such as psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists.
It is important for individuals to seek out an EMDR provider who has completed the full EMDR training and meets the requirements set forth by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
Additionally, it is recommended that those seeking EMDR therapy seek a provider who also has additional relevant experience in resolving trauma-related issues.
It is advised that individuals should do their research before selecting an EMDR therapist. Questions such as…
- How long have you been practicing EMDR?
- What kind of training have you had?
- Do you specialize in working with trauma?
These questions help individuals to determine if a provider is qualified and experienced in providing EMDR therapy. Additionally, it is important for individuals to feel comfortable with the EMDR therapist they choose, as this will be essential for successful treatment outcomes.
