Q: Do MD Psychotherapists have Certificates?

posted on May 26, 2017

A: Some members have chosen to become “Certified” by the provision of proof of hours of supervision, hours of personal therapy and evidence of formal training.  A few have chosen to expand that to become “Mentors” and a resource to their colleagues. Others have certifications in their chosen area of interest.  For example, BESTCO (Board of Examiners in Sex Therapy and Counselling in Ontario) may certify a sex therapist.  EMDRIA (EMDR International Association) may certify an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) practitioner, and so on. Some are qualified Psychoanalysts.
