What Are Other Clinicians Saying About PTI training?

" A life changing experience for me"

Upon looking at a variety of training programs, I chose PTI because I got the sense of care and safety for your trainees. With the work we do safety is so important to me not just for my clients but for my own personal processing. Thank you for not just teaching the S.A.F.E way but also for practicing what you teach.
Anyway, it truly was a life changing experience for me.

"Can’t wait to use this with clients"

This was an excellent training that was personally life changing. I can’t wait to use this with clients and continue my own EMDR work. I am grateful for Deborah, who is not only an amazing resource full of information and clear insights, but also models a way of living and interacting- I was so blessed by that. I’m inspired to live freely and teach others to do the same by these two components that I experienced this weekend.

"She ignites the room"

Deb Kennard is warm, knowledgeable, and passionate in her teaching style. She ignites the room with her passionate energy for EMDR, clearly her life’s purpose. She empowers the student to expand their own boundaries to learning with unbridled energy. I find myself entering a new life phase desiring more knowledge about EMDR and its ability to fulfill my life’s purpose of helping others.

"Kept me engaged"

I felt comfortable and welcome. I felt like you had not just an extensive knowledge of EMDR, but had a warm and an inviting nature that encouraged me to ask questions, kept me engaged, and helped me feel safe in the process. Thank you!

“This EMDR approach is a total game-changer for me.  Even though I haven’t even started doing processing with anyone yet, just the ideas behind the “answer” and insight this brings is enormously helpful to my clients.  The fact that we now have a tool to actually go in and shift early attachment trauma is utterly incredible!  It is just blowing my mind how huge this could be – we are actually helping to shift the foundations of a persons character structure!  Wow!
“I’ve done healing work since 1992 and am not easily impressed by people or methods. I’m still learning about EMDR, but I’m impressed already with its rapid, penetrating efficacy.”
“I really appreciate the explanation of EMDR in relation to attachment issues.”

“This training exceeded expectations and the attachment aspect was instrumental!

“This was the most important training I’ve had in my career, including graduate social work education!  Thank you so much!”

“Deb embodies the depth of presence, the quality of care, and the breadth of applied, experience-based knowledge which distinguish the best of true healers.”
“Absolutely wonderful!. The best training I have ever attended…seriously.”
“Very beneficial training. I know that my therapy practice will be greatly improved as a result of this training. Enjoyed the days and all that we learned.”

This training was by far the best I have been to.  It has been great to experience another form of psychotherapy besides the typical talk therapies.  Thank you for sharing your expertise.  I also feel your training is perfect!  You have thought and developed so much of the model!”

“This was excellent. Thank you so much!!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed Deb’s teaching/coaching style. Her knowledge, warmth, smile, resources (esp her dancing?) were excellent.”
“It was one of the best trainings that I have ever been through. She had an innate ability to teach, get the point across and was engaged throughout.”

“Unlike many other courses, this felt like it indeed presented advanced and usable clinical information.  I really appreciated the instructor’s knowledge, skill and playfulness.  I look forward to more trainings!”
