Andrew Leeds is a brilliant trainer and consultant.
I was trained by Dr. Leeds in EMDR, and was impressed by his expert knowledge. From the training, I took away a great understanding of theory and practice, as well as an eagerness to begin my EMDR practice.
Andrew Leeds facilitates wonderful consultation groups. I participated in two series and found the experience extremely helpful in my practice. Andrew provides excellent, insightful feedback and inspires growth among the therapists in the group. He also provides a wealth of reference materials, many from other well-respected experts, and many from his own research and publications. I intend to continue consulting with him on an individual basis.
I highly recommend Andrew to anyone seeking training or consultation.

Andrew Leeds’ book adds enormous value to the in-person training in EMDR that he has offered for many years by making available to anyone the clinical wisdom and depth of understanding that he brings to this therapy.
This volume gives the EMDR practitioner, whether novice or experienced, an extremely useful, clinically sound reference to call upon.
It's a book that I'm going to add to the reading list for my trainees, and recommend to colleagues who practice EMDR.

Master clinician Andrew Leeds has written a truly magnificent book that fully explores the art and science of EMDR for PTSD, phobias and panic disorder.
Highly instructive in its descriptions of clinical procedures, solid in the presentation of empirical evidence, clear in the theoretical underpinnings, and rich in its case illustrations, this Guide should be required reading for both beginning and experienced EMDR clinicians.
I also strongly recommend it to clinicians who, so far, have remained unfamiliar with this highly effective and consumer-friendly treatment approach.
