Finding the Right EMDR Therapist for Mother Wound Work

May 31, 2024

The mother wound, a complex mix of emotional pain and unmet needs stemming from our relationship with our mothers, can deeply impact our lives. If you've decided that Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a path you'd like to explore for healing, finding the right therapist is essential for a successful journey.


Here are key things to consider when making your choice:



    • Specialization: Seek therapists who specialize in working with relationship issues, attachment trauma, or have a specific focus on the mother wound. These therapists will have a deep understanding of the complexities involved.


    • EMDR Certification: It's vital your therapist is certified in EMDR therapy. You can verify their credentials on the EMDR International Association's website (


    • Consultation: Before committing to therapy, schedule a consultation call. This allows you to ask about their specific approach to mother wound healing using EMDR, and get a sense of their style.


    • Trust Your Gut: Healing is a deeply personal process. Choose a therapist with whom you feel safe, understood, and comfortable enough to be vulnerable.
