Regional Groups

The EMDR Association’s aim is for every member to have access to a regional group and the chance to contribute towards, and to be consulted on, Association matters. However, it requires the interest and availability of members at a local level to get involved on a voluntary basis, just as members of the Association’s board are all volunteers.

By becoming a member of the EMDR Association UK you can join your Regional group. Many report this to be one of the most useful aspects of membership
