Our Trainers

Graham Taylor - CEO of Therapist Training, EMDR & Schema Therapy Trainer

Graham has been providing training in Schema Therapy since 1993 and EMDR since 1996. In 2018 Therapist Training created the first accredited online EMDR training in the world, well before COVID-19 came along.

He grew up in a small New Zealand country town and discovered psychology at 17.  That began a lifelong passion for learning about and doing psychotherapy.  He graduated from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand in 1972, with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology.  He worked as a Clinical Psychologist in addiction treatment programs and a child and adolescent clinic before he and Min moved to Perth in 1979.   He taught social and preventive medicine at the University of Western Australia Medical School, before moving to full-time private practice in 1983. He was Director of Training for the WA branch of the Australian Society of Hypnosis in the1980s. He learnt EMDR and Schema Therapy in 1989, and assisted Francine Shapiro in the first Australian EMDR trainings in 1992.  In 1996 he was granted Accredited Trainer status with the EMDR International Association as one of the first group of trainers outside Shapiro’s training organisation. He started teaching Schema Therapy in 1993 and was grandfathered as an accredited Schema Therapy Trainer in 2008, when the International Society of Schema Therapy was formed. His training activities were an offshoot of his private practice for many years. Therapist Training was registered as a business in 2008.  He retired from full time clinical practice in 2016, and now focuses solely on training and supervising therapists.  His other hobbies are building a sports car and bushwalking / hiking / tramping (depending on which country you come from).
