I wanted to thank you so much for the excellent workshop on EMDR and health related problems. There was much that I can use in my practice which is primarily people with pain conditions. I hope you will do more, and possibly consider taking some of these topics in-depth for specific targeted workshops.

– Maureen McSweeney
