Total Immersion EMDR Weekend

5 Hours of Advanced EMDR x 3 Consecutive Days = Even the Busiest Professional Can Accelerate Their Path to Life-Changing Results

$7,500+GST CAD ($2,500 Per Day) (Virtual)

Despite Appearances...

Many Celebrities, CEOs, Established Entrepreneurs, & Other Professionals are secretly struggling. 

On the outside, they look in control.

Money. Success. Prestige. Power.

But alone in their minds...

It's a different story.

They can't escape their inner criticism.


It's the prison they take with them everywhere they go.

And it shows up in many forms.

Anxiety. Depression. Addiction. Trauma. Insomnia. Eating Disorders...


Some push it down for years.

Others for decades.

Until a lifetime of pain erupts all at once.

With disastrous consequences.

Others will continue to spiral in secrecy...

Now just a few spirals away from burning everything they've worked so hard to achieve right to the ground.

Deep down they know they can't keep this up without something really bad happening.

Eventually the individual (and their loved ones) reach the point where they know they need help.

So they search for podcasts to listen to.

Books to devour.

They decide to contact a coach or a therapist to help them change their thoughts and behaviours.

They see their doctor and maybe even a naturopath to improve their health.

They might even start meditating.

Everything looks good for a while...

And then they hit the Wall of Practical Reality.

Most elite professionals cannot afford to waste time visiting a coach or a therapist every week for years hoping to see change.

They need change NOW.

Their entire legacy depends on it.

And for some...

Their life depends on it.

Eventually, when they can't keep up with their regular sessions...

Or when they feel like they're taking one step forward and two backwards...

They fall back into their pattern of self-sabotage.

Not because they want to.

But because it's familiar.

Only this time because they understand their pattern a little more...

Their relapse back into old patterns comes with an extra dose of shame and frustration.

Hamster Wheel_edited_edited_edited.jpg

So they decide to "go it alone."

Self-medicating with alcohol, drugs, shopping, sex...

Or pouring themselves into some other pattern (sometimes perceived as positive) like work, art, exercise...


Pretending...

They've "got it."

Or worse...


Pretending the problem doesn't exist.

Because it's just too painful.

And they don't have the time anyway.

Until another wheel starts to fall off...

And they have almost no choice but to seek help again.

Only now...they feel even more hopeless than they did before.

And around and around...

This story goes...

Many come to the conclusion that "nothing works" for them.

Each time leaving the individual feeling more and more frustrated.

More and more exhausted.

More and more hopeless...

After trying "everything" with no real results, the intelligent, self-aware individual comes to the conclusion that they're the common denominator in it all.

So it must be them.

It can't be the mental health professional's fault.

Afterall they went to school for this.

Leaving the client feeling that there's something wrong with them.

Some feel they're broken beyond repair.

But You're NOT Broken...

The Old Model is Broken.

And I believe clients deserve the best.

"Industry Standard" to me means "average."

For Years I Fed Into the False Narrative
On Both Sides of "The Couch"

Struggling with anxiety and depression for most of my life, I eventually sought counselling during my masters education. 

I felt it was time.

Little did I know...it was going to be a LONG time. 


Almost a decade, 4 therapists, 3 different coaches.

Endless books, audio tapes, and podcasts...

I thought nothing of it. 

That's what I grew up expecting.

Freud, Jung, Adler, and Yalom proudly featured their long-term case studies in their paradigm-breaking books and research studies.

When I opened and started growing my practice...I proudly followed.

Black and white geometric shapes.png

I would take my clients on a journey spanning several years...

Feeling I earned my paycheck when they would reach an insight after weeks of exploration.

Only to feel discouraged when the insight never led to change.

Years would go by.

Clients would come and go.

The loyal ones that stayed...

Had the same belief that I did.

Healing takes time.

Fortunately...burnout set in for all of us.

And I was forced to find a better way.

Or get a "real job."

 

Global interview.JPG

Then I discovered EMDR...and was not only able to provide my clients with "actual" results...

...I could wrap up treatment in 12-24 months for my more complex cases and only needed 3-6 months for the "straight-forward cases."

And knowing that the World Health Organization, American Psychological Association, and dozens of other leading health authorities around the world endorses EMDR as an evidence-based treatment...


I couldn't wait to share EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with the world.

Global News, CTV, and CBC started requesting my presence as an expert-guest.

Talk Show Host Female_edited_edited.jpg

A High-Profile Media Celebrity caught my Global News segment and gave me a call.

And when she found out it would take her at least 3-6 months to eliminate her addiction...

With no real guarantee of success.

She got up and left 3/4 into her first session.

She said she had to be on the air in 4 hours...

I never heard from her again.

And while her walking out on me surprised me...

She was the catalyst I needed.

I was done with providing "ordinary."

It was time to provide Extraordinary.

And then on November 4th 2019...

My "Total Immersion Weekend" Was Born.

Robert Grigore of Grigore Counselling in Blue Suit in White Chair Looking at Hand Mid-BLS

My first "Weekend" client was a stock broker.

Struggling with feelings of inadequacy, lack of self-worth, and fears of failure...

(In his words, "I'm just never good enough.")

He jumped at the opportunity to "clear it all in one shot."

Understanding the ROI of our success was non-tangible...

He loved that his positive results of self-love and confidence was delivered to him with speed and precision...

I quickly understood that my Total Immersion Weekend had the potential to change a ton of lives (and save a lot of futures)...

Especially as it met the needs of busy professionals who have time sensitive and restrictive schedules.

"I immediately felt comfortable with Robert and felt sincere compassion from him in our interactions. He provided valuable insight and understanding of the anxiety I was experiencing and he helped me shift my perspective on specific situations where anxiety was at its highest intensity.

After working through his EMDR techniques, I left feeling incredibly relaxed and at ease. I also noticed residual benefits in my daily life through a reduction in the intensity of my anxiety.  

I highly recommend the work of Robert Grigore to anybody pursuing a life of health and well-being."

Kris was one of the first celebrities I worked with.

Since then, I've worked with actors, directors, costume designers, special effects supervisors, dance choreographers, make-up artists, and musicians.

My interest with how effective my Weekend was, took me to other top-performing professionals as well: Entrepreneurs, CEOs, Corporate Managers, Lawyers, Doctors, High-Performance Coaches, and of course more Top Level Athletes like Kris...

Now That I Could Offer My Clients Life-Changing Results Often Within A Single Weekend...

I Could Never Go Back to "Industry Standard."

Take Brenda for example...

Brenda (H) had struggled with a compulsive behaviour that she hid from the world for over 30 years...

She appeared to "have it all" on the outside.

She was intelligent, attractive, yet humble, and she founded a successful business that employed a small team.

But she felt desperately alone...

Hiding this secret from the world.

Causing her intense shame.

Making her feel that her success wasn't legitimate.

She felt like an imposter.

She felt unworthy.

I couldn't let her stay trapped with those feeling for 6-8 months...

She needed change now!

TESTIMONIALS

"I have been struggling with self confidence and a compulsive coping behavior for almost my entire life since i was like 8 years old (possibly earlier, it feels like nearly my whole life!).

​It was becoming progressively problematic and holding me back from realizing my full potential and enjoying life fully. I was struggling with my relationship with myself and with others, all stemming from limiting beliefs and destructive patterns that I knew where inhibiting me but didn't have the ability to deal with.  

Although therapy, especially this intensive, is an enormous amount of effort, Robert made the experience so enjoyable, relaxing, and I just felt so understood and comfortable. I also had the feeling he was truely an expert in what he does and that gave me a lot of reassurance that I was doing the right thing and was in capable hands.  

​Now, I am more confident, I am enough and in control. I have been able to think more clearly and detach emotion from the decisions I need to make. I have made some immediate progress in my current relationships and behaviours, but I also am working on using the tools he taught me for future hurdles. The confidence to grow as a person, let go of childhood insecurities, and contribute positively to my business, family, relationships, and society at large is exciting.  

I absolutely recommend Robert to you now, as I do regularly to others. I hope more people can experience this relief, the world will be a better place if they do. If you choose to undergo this transformation, it will be worth it in ways you cannot comprehend. Do it for yourself, your family, your friends, your business, your community. You will be happy you did. " 

Robert Grigore of Grigore Counselling in Black Vest and White Shirt against Black Backgrou

Business Icon Jay Abraham said, "If you truly believe that what you have is useful and valuable to your clients, then you have a moral obligation to try to serve them in every way possible."
 
Since I was now able to heal the root cause of... 
 
Addiction
Panic Attacks
PTSD
Depression
And More 

In as little as 3 days...

I had to offer this as a viable option for fastest results.

My clients wanted results "NOW."

Most would agree that being trapped inside your mind with a lifetime of anxiety, relentless inner criticism, or shameful secrets, with no way to get out...

...is basically the worst prison anyone can ever be in.

And after I freed one of my celebrity clients from their personal prison in 3 days...

With a smile and a hug, I was dubbed:

"The Celebrity Saviour."

I mentioned that nickname in passing in the green room with a radio host prior to an interview, and he ran with it.

Then...

 

Danette Kabunda Pic_edited.jpg

I was further honoured when Danette Kabunda (a 2-Time Emmy Award-Winning Television Producer) popularized that nickname during an exclusive interview she did with me.

So the nickname stuck.

Carbon Fibre Background_edited_edited_edited.jpg

And although I don't view myself as anyone's "saviour" (it's the clients who save themselves), I became The Celebrity Saviour in the media...

...and I work with other professionals in addition to celebrities.

Like Charlie...

Trapped to Freedom.png

Who founded a successful company that advocates for those without a voice.

Although she was "in-charge" of the company (Founder/CEO), Charlie struggled with "freezing" during difficult situations (such as confronting aggressive males).

She was in-control of every other area of her personal and professional life...but this one tendency to freeze had been holding her back for her entire lifetime.

She tried "everything" over the span of several decades...and after I worked with someone she knew, she decided to give me a shot.

She was extremely happy she did.

TESTIMONIALS

~ C, Founder & CEO ("Charlie")

"When confronted with a difficult or hostile situation, I would freeze and be unable to advocate for myself, present my point of view, or respectfully challenge or disagree with the other person.  

I had been struggling with these issues for my entire life (and I am a senior citizen). It left me with feelings of inadequacy and anger. I felt I could be bullied.  

Working with Robert, I felt heard, understood, and safe.  

Since the treatment, I have astonished myself at my ability to speak up and express myself effectively when the stakes are high. I am not vulnerable to being verbally or psychologically bullied or shut down. I actively use my (Container) and have nicknamed it Pandora's Box. I have had several situations arise where, without even thinking about it, I no longer freeze. An unexpected outcome is that I have lost my shyness or reluctance to introduce myself to strangers who are influential.  

I would recommend Robert’s services. If you are unsure of the method he uses, EMDR, do the research on the treatment to your satisfaction. If you are unsure if Robert is the right fit for you, meet with him as he will discuss any concerns you may have."

"I had seen many therapists over the years. Robert was the first therapist, who after I left his office, I actually felt a physical change in my cells. For the first time in my life things that would have and had always bothered me, just didn’t matter anymore. I could not explain it. He is a very gifted therapist. If you are ready to take the next big leap in your life, I would highly suggest considering Robert. You will be grateful months later, that you took that leap."

Unfortunately some professionals have been conditioned to believe something is wrong with them if they seek help in the first place.

Since they're high-achievers they tend to think they need to be perfect...

Which means some part of them believes they'll have to admit that they aren't good enough.

(Perfect to them often means "not requiring help.")


Being the intelligent human beings they are, the Left Hemisphere of their Brain (logical, analytical, reasoning) tells them it's impossible to be perfect.

That it's unreasonable to expect that of themselves...

But...

The Right Hemisphere of their Brain (emotional, artistic, creative) feels differently.

Because deep down they fear that if they're not perfect it means they'll be inferior, less-than, unworthy of [fill in the blank]...

This is NOT their fault. 

They have been unconsciously programmed to believe that from early on in their childhood.

Even if they believe they had loving parents.

These beliefs are often passed down from generation to generation.

And they're responsible for keeping a legacy's future potential hostage.

Or for fucking it up entirely.


It frustrates me that most professionals won't even think about what happened before the client was born.

Most professionals won't even attempt to heal the trauma that Great Grandma went through.

Because they don't think it affects the client who's sitting in front of them.

Except it does.

Stories are passed down.

Feelings about those stories are passed down.

Beliefs tied to those feelings about those stories are passed down.

There's even some research indicating trauma can be passed down on the cellular level.

Every family has a unique culture, coming from a unique history.

And every family history has some trauma to heal.


So there's a ton of shit in this world.

But there's also an enormous amount of beauty.

It's just really hard to see the beauty when you've been unconsciously programmed to see the shit.

Here's the kicker.

Generational Trauma doesn't have to come from a major catastrophe in a family's past.

It can be much harder to spot.

Like pressure.

High-expectations.

Or unexpected personal challenges that don't show up in the history books. 


Take my family.

Romanian background.

Under oppressive dictatorships, my Grandmother walked in the ditches collecting bottles to feed her three children.

Her husband was drunk often and would come home in wheelbarrows.

Or would sleep on the curb.

She was alone emotionally.

Then when he decided to commit suicide...

She was alone physically too.

Back to the ditches to support her family.

He was dealing with PTSD from war in the way men were allowed to handle it.

She was dealing with his way of dealing.

What is often missed by professionals is that each member of a family's legacy operates through their own individually unique survival mechanisms...

Which "worked" at one point to ensure survival.

But now no longer works and isn't even necessary.

The unconscious mind just needs to get the memo and stop responding to negative situations that are no longer present.

Or the next generation will be stuck responding to Grandma's trauma.

Until someone stops the trend.

TESTIMONIALS

Mike Skrypnek_edited.jpg

“You never know when the trauma you’ve kept deep inside will rise to the surface…until it does. I reached out to Robert shortly after the darkest time in my life. I knew I needed to change my life narrative forever. Robert. Check. I experienced EMDR in the past and knew I needed that too. Robert. Check. Check.

 

What I needed most of all, though, was a man to trust and to be a partner in my healing. Robert was (is) that man. The shift he was instrumental in guiding me through was nothing short of life altering. I had been operating below my potential for forty years with a secret locked inside eating away at my core! My family, friends, clients, the world, deserve the best of me. I deserve that more than anything. Robert has helped unshackle me from the grip of abuse, so I can trust myself to let others know me…because I know I am worth it.

 

I am placing Robert on the "Good Men List" along with others who are worthy, living their passion and potential and making the lives of others better.”

Robert's work has been an extremely helpful and important asset to my healing journey. He was able to hit deep rooted problems that I didn't even know were affecting my everyday life. My head feels clearer and I am so grateful to have had Robert recommended to me and to have been able to work with him.

Can you imagine? 

Being trapped inside a personal prison like Mike was for 40 years...

Being a Top Performer in your field, but holding onto a secret that felt like it was eating away at your core?

Then watching the pattern repeat itself in your child?

Torch Bearer.png

You Don't Have to Remain the Victim of Your Past...

You Can Become The Hero Who Carried the Torch for the Future.

Many Top Performers are driven to Elite Status because of their past.

It's the fire that fueled their determination to live their lives with the same focus as an athlete training for the Olympics.

Some even become Olympians.

Others are CEOs.

Others are Musicians.

Actors.

Entrepreneurs.

Doctors.

It's incredible what they've achieved so far.

Because they did it all with a "knife in their leg."

That internal prison is like a secret knife that digs into their true potential.

They've learned to improve other areas to exceptional degrees...

Imagine what happens when you remove the knife...


You Don't Stop Performing.

You Perform Better Than You Ever Have Before!

But what do you think happens if the knife is never removed?

Eventually the wound becomes infected.

And not only does the athlete lose the race.

They lose the leg.

TESTIMONIALS

"I was worrying about things, not feeling happy, feeling overwhelmed. I was also feeling distracted and not able to focus and was lacking motivation. I have been feeling it most strongly the last 3-4 years. 

I was feling overwhelmed, worried and depressed at times. I found it difficult to get my head ‘clear’ about things and would get overwhelmed about making decisions. I was struggling to get motivated to get things done.  

 

Robert was very professional at all times; also was very clear in his explanations of the process and what to expect; gave lots of time and space for individual pacing when dealing/processing something. He was a patient and understanding guide, as I worked through these issues.

I would recommend Robert to anyone."  

~ L, Entrepreneur  

I respect your time as an extremely valuable asset to you.

My time is no different to me.

I don't have time for games.

Anyone I choose to sit down with gets the real me.

Which also includes a judgement-free space to share what's going on for you.

I'm also going to be straight-forward in letting you know if I believe I can help you.

All I ask from you is to be ready to be real with me in return.

"You have to want to heal... When Robert came into my life, I was ready... Sometimes you need a little, sometimes you need a lot. Robert gifted to me a very safe space to express myself to feel very comfortable, to know there wasn't any judgment. And as someone who worked as a grief counselor myself, in Robert's industry, it's not so easy to go into a therapy or counseling session...however, it worked! And it's been a very, very long time before I was able to sit down with anyone like the way I was able to sit with Robert."

Some people come prepared with exactly what they want to work through and what they want to change.

While others are less clear.

Both are fine.


You DO NOT need to know everything about your past to heal from it.

I've healed many clients who had complete memory blocks for large portions of their life.

All you need to know is how you're feeling now and have some sense of where you'd like to go.


I'll meet you where you are.

And take you where you want to go.

S-Hollywood Actress

"I was looking for the right therapist to work with, during my stay in Vancouver. I Googled EMDR therapists in the Vancouver area and a lot of profiles came up. I chose to contact Robert as his words on his profile resonated with me, he wrote about healing inner conflict and awakening one's potential.

I had several very intense EMDR sessions with Robert while I was in Vancouver. He is very focused and doesn't lose sight of why I went to him. Before we started the work, he asked me about specific issues that I wanted to bring to awareness and we focused on those. He has the ability to read in between the lines, pick up important elements that I myself may not have been aware of.

I would recommend Robert very highly for his professionalism, his focus and dedication and the open mindedness he brings to his work with his clients." 

Most people are both excited and nervous when they sit down with me.

They want to know what it will feel like.

Is it going to hurt?

What's going to happen?

What do I need to do?

It's natural to be curious.

Here's what you need to know...

Working with me will be unlike anything you've ever experienced before.

Unlike many professionals out there that see the symptoms and a client who needs to be fixed...

I see my clients as whole already.

From the higher perspective of their entire lifeline.

I respect everything they've been through, and who they had to be to get through it.

I appreciate who and where they are now.

I hold the space and honour what they want to become and how far they can go.

Even if they don't see it themselves.

We're not going to talk in endless circles.

We're going to hone-in on the life experiences that formed the prison you're in.

And we will be extremely precise.

I'm not going to sugarcoat this.

When we go to grab the handle of the knife, it's going to hurt a little bit.

But it will be over very quickly.

Unlike waiting for a wound to heal in your leg, the wound in your mind will heal exponentially faster.

That's because the neurological networks within your brain are capable of repairing and rewiring within nanoseconds.

Yes, you will experience a very short duration of higher distress when we focus on certain areas.

We're talking a couple of minutes.

It will rise like a crescendo..

Then it will decrease extremely quickly.

Think "bell curve."

One more time looking at it and you're done.

Forever.

Yes, you'll still remember the memory or situation we've just healed of course.

This isn't ECT ("shock therapy") or a lobotomy.

You're not Jack Nicholson (unless you in fact are Jack.)

After several hundred clients, I can say with 100% certainty, it will feel like a distant fact when we're done.

Like the ice age.

You know it happened, but it doesn't bother you.

And no matter how high your bell curve takes you, or how wedged that knife is in your leg...

I know how to deal with it.

TESTIMONIALS

(Identity is confidential but testimonial remains unaltered to preserve the integrity of the client's experience.)

“I have seen Robert due to an addiction that was rooted in childhood trauma. The memory of the trauma came up in a session with another counsellor about one year prior to the treatment with Robert. That means, my trauma was hidden for more than 20 years deep down before it surfaced. Unfortunately, I was not able to heal through talking therapy for more than a year. A different counsellor mentioned to me that EMDR might be helpful and this is how I found Robert.

 

EMDR was able to solve something within a few sessions that talking therapy could not for more than a year.

 

Before the EMDR treatment, I felt like my life was surrounded by a bubble filled with painful memories and emotions. It was almost impossible to let myself feel the pain of physical abuse and neglect that occurred to me in my childhood. EMDR helped me to process the painful memories and stabilize my emotional response. I would say the painful memories have lost their intensity, which was simply liberating and lead to a new life.

 

Robert was very professional and helpful throughout the entire treatment. At times, when the memories were so painful (I even contemplated walking out of the session), Robert was able to guide me through the session with kindness and understanding. For that reason, I can only recommend Robert as a counsellor and EMDR as a therapy approach."

And you know what else?

You don't even need to tell me all the details.

I just need to know the basics.

I call it the "Chapter Titles" of your story.

Many are so thrilled they don't need to explain every aspect of everything to me (saves you from having to re-live every detail of a painful memory and feel even more shame...plus it saves us time).

I just need to know if you're feeling better, worse, or the same.

Positive, negative, or neutral.

But, if you do want to share any details (maybe you've never told anyone and you feel that pain needs a witness)...

I'm all ears. 

I've heard things over the years that would give the average person nightmares for weeks.

I can take it.

And then some.

I look at the world through a very unique perspective that can hold the dark with the light.

All the best artists understand shadow. 

But work in the light.
