We’re often asked at Trauma Aid UK for ideas and advice about support literature and equipment for therapists setting out on the practice of EMDR.

Trauma Aid UK has a range of particularly useful and simple publications and aids for EMDR suitable for both clinicians and clients/patients.

These can be ordered directly from Ulf Jarisch at EMDR Equipment Europe with proceeds going to support the work of Trauma Aid UK.

We are always looking for original materials to sell so if you have ideas or are able to design new materials, we’d love to hear from you.

Please note that Trauma Aid UK takes no responsibility for any choice of equipment you might make after reading this page.


Handbook for Clients

The perfect summary to hand to clients at the start of EMDR therapy, setting out how it works and how it’s applied, and with space for clients to capture their keystone memories and the associated cognitions, and track their own progress. Note that this book can also be bought in e-book form and downloaded from Amazon, here, for slightly less cost.

Case Formulation

Direct from Francine Shapiro herself, outlines and summarises in simple, direct language how EMDR is best applied, all the way through the three prongs and the eight stages. Greatly prized by newcomers still getting used to the protocol, but invaluable too for older hands concerned to keep their practise sharp. Note that this book can also be bought in e-book form and downloaded from Amazon, here, for slightly less cost.

Clinical Supervision

A collection of useful resources for EMDR supervisors to facilitate the process of supervision and accreditation, including an EMDR therapy checklist, an EMDR fidelity checklist, reflections on the process of learning EMDR and suggestions for how to structure a supervision session.

EMDR and Mourning
