Miranda Counseling

Basic Consultation

Once you are finished with your level 1 and 2 trainings, we are here to support you in implementing EMDR with your clients. As part of the training, you receive 10 hours of consultation that you book with one of our EMDRIA approved consultants. These hours are paid for as part of the training package with Miranda Counseling.

If you are shopping for trainings in EMDR, be sure to ask other training providers if consultation is included in the price, and if not how much you should expect to pay as prices for consultation can vary (from $80 to $250 per hour!) These 10 hours are required by EMDRIA in order to complete your training and be approved to provide EMDR therapy. Many trainers do not include this in the cost of training, which can add expense.

Basic level Training Participants: If you have attended our basic level training, read on to learn how to sign up for consultation.

*this page is for training participants who are finishing level 1 and 2, or “basic level training” in order to provide EMDR. If you are finished with this and looking for additional consultation towards certification in EMDR, please see the Certification tab Important information to remember.

1. EMDRIA requires you attend 10 hours of consultation in order to be finished with your Basic Level Training.
2. All 10 hours of consultation are included in your training price.
3. You must finish these 10 hours within 1 year of having started your level 1 training.
4. If you need to reschedule, we ask that you cancel your consultation with as much notice as possible, if you miss or cancel within 48 hours you will be charged for this consultation at a rate of $25/hour.
