We love that Amanda brings something new to the Soulhub Team with her EMDR specialism, which is so very much needed as we uncover more conditions and trauma that can benefit from this practice. We look forward to enjoying her enthusiasm for her work, her knowledge, depth of practice and receiving her desire to join our community.
