EMDR Level 1 Training

(From the EMDRAA website) "Applicants for EMDR training programs should possess the following qualifications when registering (to be evaluated by the trainer):

1. Allied Health Professionals

Allied Health Professionals with specialist training in mental health (Psychiatry, Psychology, Mental Health Social Workers, Psychological Medicine, etc) must have full registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (or NSW Registration Board if residents of that state).

2. Mental Health Professionals not covered by legislation

Social Workers must also belong to AASW. Counsellors and psychotherapists must  be registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) as a Clinical Mental Health Practitioner or the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) as a Level 3 or 4 member.

3. Interns/Students

Students enrolled in a graduate level program in mental health (psychiatry, psychology, social work, counselling, etc.) who are currently involved in the internship portion of their program and are working under the supervision of a qualified mental health professional."

Mary Sutton has spent over 15 years of private practice specializing in trauma-based disorders. Her post-graduate study has been in psychotherapy for adults still affected by complex childhood traumas. Mary has lectured in Psychology, Counselling and Social Work at Macquarie University, University of Western Sydney and Tabor College.


I have undertaken the EMDR Level 1, EMDR Level 2, and Level 1 Supervision with Mary Sutton as the Presenter/Supervisor.  I found Mary’s presentations of an excellent standard.  She has a wealth of knowledge and is available for consultation after completion of EMDR Level 1 via email, phone conversation, Skype, and appointment.  During the presentations Mary imparts  many years of practice in a clear, easy to understand format.  She enables development of a thorough understanding of the use of EMDR for the treatment of a wide variety of mental health issues, including PTSD, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.   I would highly recommend Mary Sutton as a presenter for EMDR Level 1, Level 2, and Supervision.  I have obtained a wealth of knowledge from Mary’s presentations in a very short amount of time and value the experience immensely.
