EMDR Intensives Course

Do you want to learn how to conduct EMDR Intensive therapy with clients?

Based on feedback from consultees and fellow colleagues, it is becoming more clear that

therapists are feeling burnt out.

For us, the constant week-to-week schedule of changing clients and appointments

every hour was becoming exhausting.

We needed a change of pace and we wanted to see clients get better faster!

That's when we started switching our private practices over to conducting EMDR Intensives

and we are not looking back!

Hi, we are Kelly Smyth-Dent, LCSW and Sadie Smith, LMFT (EMDRIA Approved EMDR Consultants) and we want to share with you our stories of changing the structure of our practices to give us more time, money and freedom to work with clients that is congruent for us.

We offer EMDR Intensives to clients both in-person and virtually that gets them results faster and

gives us the lifestyles that we want. 

Because we began receiving more requests for consultations regarding how to start an EMDR Intensives practice, we thought we would share our collective knowledge and experience on the topic in this comprehensive and affordable online course!

The truth is.... 

There is not one right way to offer EMDR Intensives.

That's why we share two different models and perspectives to empower YOU to create the private practice that works best for you and your clients.

Frequently asked questions

Does this course train me to become an EMDR therapist?


No, this course requires that you have already completed an EMDRIA-approved Basic Training. Then you can utilize the EMDR Intensives Course as a complementary resource to help the therapist understand options for conceptualizing cases and designing the structure of their EMDR intensives services. The course recommends various EMDRIA approved advanced trainings to take in order to best prepare yourself to conduct EMDR intensives with clients. Sadie and Kelly also recommend that therapists are EMDRIA Certified before conducting EMDR intensives with clients.




How much does this course cost?


Our standard pricing is:
$497 for the Comprehensive Package and $1,497 for the Professional Package.
However, sometimes we offer discounts throughout, so get on our email list so you will be the first to know!




What is the difference between the Comprehensive Package & the Professional Package?


The on demand courses for each package are the same. However, the Professional Package offers a variety of customized touches and discounts, such as: - Receive 1 free online individual consultation with Sadie to ask any questions you want! - Obtain a customized feedback video about your business strategy & website marketing - 20% off discounted EMDR intensive therapy experience with Sadie - 10% off discount for Dr. Jarero's EMDR Advanced Training

Yes! The EMDR Intensives Facebook Group is free to join. You do not have to purchase our products to join the group :)




Do I need to be an EMDR Basic Trained therapist to purchase this package?


Yes! We do not teach therapist how to conduct EMDR in this course. You must already have completed the EMDR Basic Training before purchasing this course. I recommend checking out Scaling Up's Virtual EMDR Basic Training.




What if I haven't been using EMDR since I received my Basic Training?


I am so happy you asked and are thinking about getting back into using EMDR therapy. In this case, we suggest that you first take an EMDR Refresher Course to get back into the swing of things. After you take an EMDR Refresher Course and start practicing with clients again, we recommend that you work toward becoming EMDRIA Certified. I recommend taking Elizabeth Legg's EMDR Refresher Course.




Is this course refundable?


No, this course is not refundable. Because it is on demand, you receive all the content immediately after purchasing. Please note that there is not one correct way of offering EMDR intensives. That is why we offer two different perspectives and empower our customers to make their EMDR intensives their own. Additionally, if you purhcase the Professional Package, then you can receive individual, customized feedback from Kelly and Sadie to offer additional support.




Can I pay with a payment plan?


Yes, for the Professional Package only. If you pay for the Professional Package in full, then you will receive the entire course and access to the discount codes immediately after purchase.

Who are Sadie & Kelly and why are they qualified to teach this course?


Sadie Smith and Kelly Smyth-Dent are both EMDRIA Approved Consulants and have a combined 14 years of EMDR experience. They both run their private practices fully by offering EMDR intensives. They also both run their private practices and EMDR intensives slightly differently, so this training offers you the unique oppotunity to learn two different ways of running EMDR intensives in your practice AND receive direct feedback from Sadie and Kelly to help you customize your own way of offering EMDR intensives that fits your desires, lifestyle and comfort level.
