News: Cognitive Interweaves in EMDR Event with Joany Spierings


On Saturday 10 March 2018, Jesmond Therapy Centre hosted its Cognitive Interweaves in EMDR seminar, presented by the widely known Dr Joany Spierings who travelled across from the Netherlands to present the 1-day seminar in Newcastle upon Tyne, on behalf of Jesmond Therapy Centre.

The workshop brought together a large number of delegates from across the UK, with over 45 EMDR practitioners and consultants in attendance.

The event was held at the four-star Crowne Plaza Hotel in Newcastle upon Tyne, which is ideally located in the city centre, close to all transport links and only a stone’s throw away from the railway station. The Crowne Plaza Hotel also has excellent car parking facilities.

A buffet lunch was provided including tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the day.

We had a fantastic day and we have shared a range of pictures and feedback from the delegates.

Here’s what the delegates had to say about Cognitive Interweaves in EMDR:

“Fantastic, exciting, emotional, moving, passionate and knowledgeable”

“Best presentation I have seen to date – excellent!”

“High quality!”

“Engaging, challenging and charismatic”
