    I have noticed your job application for Somatic Experiencing and/or Sensorimotor Psychotherapy/EMDR therapist.

    I am an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist with experience in working with clients who have experienced historical abuse and am currently completing my EMDR training.

    From the job description you have marked the Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy as essential. Is there any flexibility in this?

    I am interested to hear from you with this regard.

    Many thanks
