Has the EMDR training cost stood in your way, preventing you from learning how to do EMDR? You want to become an EMDRIA-approved therapist. As long as you aren’t one, you, your clients, and your practice are missing out.
Of course, your clients can just go see a therapist who CAN do EMDR, but where does that leave you and your therapy practice?
Mental health counselors aren’t strangers to covering educational expenses. Yet some use the price of training as a reason to put off becoming competent in this powerful treatment approach. And yet, the cost of EMDR training can prove very affordable – surprised?
5 Ways to Get Low Cost EMDR Training
Did you know that you can influence how much you have to pay to become an EMDR therapist? Note that some of the following options might not be available through other EMDR trainers. But at EMDR Educators of Florida, our core mission is to advance the use of EMDR therapy. We offer several ways to help mental health graduate students and therapists learn EMDR without cost being a barrier.
1. Refer Other Therapists
The 10 consultation hours you must complete to become an EMDR therapist are part of your training expenses. At EMDR Educators of Florida, each consultation is only $25. The low price reflects our efforts to maintain an affordable EMDR training cost. But more than that, you can earn free consultations just by getting other therapists and graduate students to train with us.
For each person you refer who registers and pays for class you get one consultation free. If ten people you refer pay for their training- even if they opt to pay in installments – that means you get all ten of the required consultations free.
2. Register for EMDR Training Early
