I work as an EMDR Coach for Roy Kiessling (EMDR Consulting). In Roy's program, 10 hours of consultation is included in the fee you pay for basic training - so there is no additional fee to you. I offer consultation on Wednesday evenings (6:30 -8:00 pm) and Thursday morning (9: 00 - 10:30 am). I do this work by video conference - so you need a computer and high speed internet connection.
My signups are on a website called "SignupGenius.com" (link below). You can sign up for as many or as few dates as you would like - you have 1 year to complete your consultations for basic training (please check EMDR Consulting Website to confirm - EMDRIA keeps changing the amount of time allowed to complete the work).
Link to my GROUP CONSULTS for basic training:
INDIVIDUAL CONSULTATION for basic training: If you want to do individual consults then you need to contact me by email (see contact me page) and there will be an additional fee for the consult. I work on a sliding fee scale from $150 - $200/hr. Roy will cover the first $33 and you pay the remainder.
NOTE: I am licensed in Alberta and am only able to provide consultation to professionals while they are in Alberta (if you live in BC, Saskatchewan etc.. I would need to get a temporary licensee in your province to provide consultation to you). The better plan is to pick a coach in your home province - see the last page of your training manual for a list of Roy's Canadian Coaches) or use one of the psychologists on the Alberta Team.
If you have completed basic training but wish improve your skills, I provide both group and individual consultations. Consults can be done "in person" or by video conferencing. Fee: sliding scale: $150 - $200 an hour (shared if there is more than one participant). If you work for a non-profit you get to use the lower fee. If you are in private practice then I charge the same fee that you would for an hour of client service. So if you charge $170 for an hour session with a client then I charge you the same fee for a one hour consult. Contact me by email or phone at 403-331-0352.
Note: You will have to scan and send me as copy of your license to practice and your EMDR Basic Training Certificate before I provide consultation. Payment is made by e-transfer and receipts are sent by email.
If you want to start working towards being an EMDR Certified therapist please contact me about one of my certification groups. Certification consists of 20 hours of consultation work - up to 10 of these hours can be group consultation. My consulting fees for certification are:
Sessions generally occur on a monthly basis. It generally takes 1.5 years to complete certification. Know also that as part of the individual consultation hours you will need to provide videos of yourself doing EMDR with clients. I will not "signoff" on your certification unless I have seen your work with clients - know that this is a "Kirstenism" - in other words other consultants often do not require videos (but I do). If you do not want to do videos check the EMDR Canada website for other EACS (EMDRIA Approved Consultants). See the EMDR Canada Website to get more information on the certification process or email me.
Social workers with a master's degree (MSW) are eligible to apply to be a candidate for RCSW status. This requires supervision by an RCSW and a learning plan approved by the ACSW (Alberta College of Social Workers). I have supervised 4 RCSW candidates to date (some are still the the process of completing their RCSW program). I prefer to work with RSW's who are EMDR Trained and/or who are willing to include this as part of their learning plan.
