Kelowna EMDR Clinic

Hello, my name is Ashley Phillips and I am the founder of the Kelowna EMDR Clinic in the Okanagan. Over the course of my counselling career I noticed how frequently my clients’ problems stemmed from some experience of trauma earlier in their lives. In fact, prevalence of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and other mental health issues in our society indicates to me that many of us have

unresolved psychologically traumatic experiences that continue to adversely affect our daily lives. So when I learned about the effectiveness of EMDR therapy in treating traumatic memories, I was naturally drawn to it. I ended up studying EMDR therapy under Sue Genest who is widely considered to be one of the best EMDR trainers in Canada. 


When I started using EMDR therapy in sessions with my clients, it felt very satisfying and rewarding to see how quickly my clients were making progress. And because I recognize that there are many more people who can benefit from EMDR therapy than I can treat personally, I decided to start Kelowna EMDR Clinic, where I could work alongside other excellent EMDR practitioners.

We are the first-of-its-kind clinic in the Okanagan that primarily focuses on EMDR therapy.


Every day we strive to be the go-to place for EMDR therapy in Kelowna. We do that by creating and cultivating an environment that attracts and retains the best EMDR therapists to our currently small, but growing, team. Right now we have five EMDR therapists to serve you. I anticipate that as we establish the clinic, our team will continue to expand.
