Because We Believe You Matter

Elena founded Very Good Counseling in 2021. As a therapist, she finds that specializing in EMDR therapy elevates her abilities to help individuals with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Passionate about freeing people from years of negative thoughts and destructive habits, Elena is committed to helping individuals find liberation from their past, embracing their truest selves.

“If we understand that traumas, nightmares, and bad memories of adverse situations are stored in a maladaptive form in the brain networks, then we can begin to understand how EMDR can reprocess these fears, phobias, terrors, and anxieties that are connected to painful memories that keep victims trapped by these ghosts from the past.”

The Heroic Quest For Certification

Picture this: you’ve acquired the foundational knowledge and skills of EMDR, equipping you with the power to heal and transform lives. But your journey doesn’t end there. To achieve true mastery and become a certified EMDR practitioner, you must undertake a sacred quest known as post-training supervision. It’s time to unravel the mysteries of this vital component and unlock your full potential!

Harnessing The Power Of Post-Training Supervision

Enter the mentor, the sage, and the trusted ally: post-training supervision! Much like seasoned superheroes who rely on their mentors, EMDR practitioners benefit from the guidance and support of experienced supervisors. Let’s explore how these consultations can supercharge your growth:

  1. Guiding Light: Supervision sessions illuminate your path, offering clarity and insight into the intricacies of EMDR therapy. With the wisdom of your supervisor, you’ll navigate through challenges and discover new strategies to enhance your practice.
  2. Refining Your Superpower: Through personalized feedback and case discussions, post-training supervision hones your skills and deepens your understanding of EMDR. You’ll refine your techniques, ensuring your superpower is wielded with precision and compassion.
  3. Embracing the Hero’s Journey: Supervision provides a safe space to explore your own reactions and emotions during sessions, enabling personal growth alongside professional development. This transformative process empowers you to become a more resilient and empathetic practitioner.

Soaring Towards Certification

Imagine a world where trauma is healed, and individuals find solace and strength through the power of EMDR. With post-training supervision as your trusty ally, you’ll forge ahead on your heroic quest towards certification. Let’s summarize how these consultations will help you soar to new heights:

  1. Meeting the Certification Criteria: Post-training supervision hours are an essential requirement for EMDR certification. These sessions will ensure you fulfill the necessary criteria, making you eligible to proudly don the certification emblem.
  2. Personal and Professional Growth: Supervision is not just about fulfilling requirements; it’s a transformative journey that nurtures your skills, self-awareness, and resilience. You’ll emerge as a more confident and competent EMDR practitioner, ready to make a profound impact.
  3. Developing Unique Protocols and Pointers: Post-training supervision opens the door to developing your own unique protocols and pointers tailored to specific symptoms or diagnoses. As you delve deeper into EMDR therapy under the expert guidance of your supervisor, you’ll gain insights and strategies for addressing specific challenges that clients may face. This creative process allows you to contribute to the field by expanding the repertoire of effective EMDR interventions, making you a true trailblazer in the realm of trauma healing.
  4. Embracing the Hero Within Others: As you progress through post-training supervision, you’ll not only grow as a practitioner but also empower others to embark on their own hero’s journey. As you gain expertise and refine your skills, you’ll have the opportunity to mentor and guide fellow EMDR trainees. By sharing your knowledge and experiences, you’ll inspire others to develop their superpowers and work towards their own certification. Together, you’ll create a community of empowered healers, united in their mission to transform lives.
  5. Unlocking Metaphors and Symbolism: During the post-training supervision process, you’ll encounter clients who express their experiences through metaphors, dreams, images, and symbols. These powerful expressions can sometimes leave practitioners feeling stuck or unsure of how to proceed. Fear not, for post-training supervision can equip you with the tools to unravel the hidden meanings within these metaphors and guide your clients towards profound healing.
  6. Going with the Flow: Your supervisor can teach you how to embrace and work with metaphors, allowing them to become allies in the therapeutic journey. You’ll learn to listen attentively, observe patterns, and follow the client’s lead as they traverse the symbolic landscape of their psyche.
  7. Jungian Interpretations: Building upon the wisdom of Carl Jung’s analytical psychology, post-training supervision can introduce you to Jungian interpretations of dreams, images, and symbols. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of archetypes and the collective unconscious, enhancing your ability to unravel the profound messages hidden within your clients’ symbolic expressions.
  8. Integrating Symbolic Healing: Armed with the knowledge of Jungian interpretations, you’ll be able to integrate symbolic healing techniques into your EMDR practice. This integration can unlock deeper layers of trauma and facilitate transformative experiences for your clients.

As you progress through post-training supervision, you’ll not only refine your skills in working with metaphors but also expand your understanding of dreams, images, and symbols through a Jungian lens. With this additional knowledge, you’ll become adept at unraveling the profound messages hidden within your clients’ symbolic expressions, leading them towards deeper healing and transformation. Embrace the power of symbolism and metaphors as you soar towards certification, and watch as your clients’ journeys unfold with newfound clarity and insight.

Dear fellow adventurers, the path to becoming a certified EMDR practitioner may be challenging, but with post-training supervision, you’ll find yourself equipped with the wisdom and support needed to conquer any obstacle. Embrace this opportunity to refine your superpower, heal hearts, and transform lives. Step forward, for the world awaits your compassionate touch. You are now prepared to embark on the hero’s journey towards certification!
