Train to be an ERT therapist

Three days training can provide you with the skills you need to offer ERT to your clients either as a standalone therapy or in combination with other therapies you already practice.

Why learn ERT?

The aim of any therapy is to provide people with a service that can help them recover from distress in as short a time frame as possible whilst being as easy for the client as possible. ERT is able to offer this.​

If you would like to help people reduce their emotional and psychological distress in a way that is both kind and sensitive to the difficulties clients experience in therapy then training in ERT is highly recommended.

The aim of the training is to support delegates who undertake ERT training to become accomplished ERT practitioners, so they can begin to offer this therapy to their clients immediately following training.

The supervision support over two sessions further enhances your skills in this approach through sharing experiences with colleagues and receiving support to develop your competency. This aids good practice and high quality care for the clients with whom you work.
