“Carol was responsible for helping me develop my interest in ego state therapy as a way of enhancing my EMDR practice. I invited Carol to present her two-day workshop in Belfast to introduce psychotherapists in Ireland to this approach. The attendees benefited from Carol’s comfortable style of presentation and her immense knowledge and experience.”
