Want to feel confident in treating complex cases?

Have you ever been tempted to pass on a complex case to a colleague, because you didn’t feel confident in treating them effectively?

Or perhaps you’ve experienced treatment obstacles while working with complexity, and worried that you’d dealt with them incorrectly?

I’ve definitely been there… 

And those concerns are certainly justified. Because complex cases (those with experiences of prolonged, repeated trauma such as early childhood abuse, neglect, or ongoing interpersonal violence) can lead to more severe and chronic symptoms compared to single-incident trauma.

And they can present various treatment challenges, such as high emotional dysregulationretraumatisation riskscomplex dissociation, and resistance to treatment.

So, how can we treat complex cases confidently?

If you’d like to be prepared to handle these challenging clinical situations with confidence and competence, then you’ll want to buy my short online course – EMDR and Complex Cases.

What do I bring to the course?

Hi, my name is Dr Hannah Bryan and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and a Europe Approved EMDR Consultant Facilitator. I have used EMDR in my Clinical practice since 2006. I have been an EMDR Consultant since 2014 and an EMDR Facilitator since 2019.

I was slow to start my EMDR journey, I had a supervisor next door to support me and that was just amazing but I worked in NHS secondary care mental health services and often felt my clients were too complex to use EMDR with. I was looking for a single straightforward trauma that just never seems to be referred into services.

So I think I went a bit off piste and made life a bit harder for myself then it needed to be. When I found that I stuck to the standard 8 phase treatment protocol, I started to see massive improvements in my clients and in my confidence. So I completed refresher training and felt it re energised my EMDR practice.

I want to share with you some of the steps and the key learnings that helped me learn to become a better EMDR therapist and achieve some amazing results with my clients.

I am extremely passionate about helping clinicians improve their knowledge and skills in EMDR. I want you to improve your confidence and practice it more with your clients.
