Dr. Amanda Bell provides advanced training and consultation to support clinicians to become confident and skillful EMDR or play therapists.

Virtual EMDR Basic Training

Given the vital need to adhere to social distancing guidelines to reduce the transmission of Covid-19, Dr. Amanda Bell’s EMDR Basic Training program will be offered virtually and fully meets the EMDR International Association’s (EMDRIA) virtual training standards. The required classroom lectures, practicum sessions and group consultation sessions will be offered using Zoom, and “Thinkific” on-line learning platform.

EMDR and Play Therapy Consultation

Dr. Bell is a certified EMDR consultant and approved training provider with the EMDR International Associates. Individual and group consultation is offered to clinicians wishing to enhance their EMDR practice or work toward EMDR certification. Given the limited availability of certified consultants who specialize in EMDR with children or adolescents, Dr. Bell’s consultation is generally limited to these client populations.

Dr. Bell is also an approved supervisor with the Canadian Association for Play Therapy (CAPT) and provides ongoing supervision and individual case consultation to play therapists who work with traumatized children and youth.

Group, agency or individual consultation services with Dr. Bell are provided at her office or by Zoom video conference.

Clinicians who have attended an EMDRIA approved Basic Training program or the CAPT educational program and who wish to contract consultation towards EMDR or CAPT certification are asked to email [email protected]

Other Consultation and Training offered

Dr. Bell can be contracted to provide workshops and training seminars for child protection, children’s mental health, and criminal justice professionals. Training programs are designed to meet each group’s needs, integrating current research findings with her extensive clinical expertise.
