Background to the Training
Amanda developed Depth Enquiry over a period of 8 years, following her own training in EMDR in 2011 and her experiences of using EMDR with clients.
It became clear to her that she could take her clients deeper and could make faster, more lasting changes in them by incorporating Gestalt understandings into the process. (Amanda’s original psychotherapeutic training was in experiential Gestalt.)
Amanda started to call this amalgam “Depth Enquiry” – an enquiry into the psychic depths that underpin trauma and hold it locked (as in a fixed Gestalt).
Amanda found it exciting to see how long-held sufferings could be relieved by such a gentle and non-invasive process.
She quickly realised that the process could be valuable to other therapists seeking change for individuals affected by PTSD, so commenced her training workshops. These workshops have been warmly received and therapists report deep learnings as well as an engaging and enjoyable experience.
Amanda’s Depth Enquiry workshops for therapists are held from time to time in Sydney, Australia. These are 3 day experiential workshops involving theory, demonstrations, practice, feedback and supervision. An extensive manual is provided to participants.
In this format there are 19 hours of Professional Development. A training certificate for PD requirements is provided to participants.
