My name is Ayan Mukherjee and welcome to EMDR Therapy Toronto. As a Registered Psychotherapist and a Certified EMDR Therapist and Consultant, I specialize in EMDR Therapy, anxiety, PTSD, childhood trauma, Complex PTSD and Spiritual Psychotherapy.

I was trained in EMDR in 2017 and I have earned the designation of EMDRIA-Approved EMDR Consultant, which means that I can train and supervise EMDR therapists.

I have completed the EMDR Certification process and the subsequent process to become a consultant/supervisor, teaching EMDR Therapy to newly-trained EMDR therapists. This process takes a minimum of 3 years to complete and a lot of experience using EMDR Therapy in various situations with different client populations and issues.

Prior to my EMDR training, I graduated with a degree in Spiritual Psychotherapy from the Transformational Arts College, Toronto, in early 2016. Since then I have also trained in other trauma-informed, somatic therapies, such as Internal Family Systems, Ego States Therapy, Somatic Psychotherapy, Deep Brain Reorienting, etc.

I transitioned to become a psychotherapist from a 9-year long successful career in commercial banking. I discovered the power of good psychotherapy, while dealing with my own issues. I experienced extensive healing and transformation over a period of 3-4 years, while completing therapy school, before I felt I was ready to start seeing my own clients.

I truly understand the anxieties and awkwardness associated with going to see a therapist, especially for the first time. I have been there, done that.

Also as a survivor of trauma you may have felt misunderstood, or even been abused by mental health practitioners. You may have tried CBT and when that didn’t help, you may have been shamed for not trying harder, or for being “too much” for your therapist. I see you and I applaud your courage for choosing to trust yet another therapist in your healing journey.

These issues teach me to be an approachable, collaborative and results-oriented therapist, especially for those who have never experienced therapy before, or those who haven’t had the best experience with “talk-only” therapists.

I like to make sure that my clients understand the treatment plan that we develop collaboratively, why and how we use different modalities in each session, and develop a focus on tracking results and growth achieved after each session.

I have an East Indian background, speaking Hindi and Bengali. I grew up in India, I have lived in the Middle East for a few years, and I have been a proud Torontonian since late 2010. This informs my culturally sensitive method of counselling, which is crucial for serving a city like Toronto. I am also a dad of two daughters and can appreciate the challenges faced by parents who are working hard to not pass down their trauma to their kids.

I am also a mental health illustrator and the owner of the Etsy store – Therapy Illustrated. I create mental health art for psycho-educational and inspirational purposes. I have published 3 visual aids flipbooks on EMDR Therapy, General Trauma Therapy, and Attachment Trauma & Dissociation.
