PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
All the products or services made available on this website are intended solely for personal or small business use.

We reserve the right to cancel any membership if it appears that it is of fraudulent or inappropriate nature. Prices, promotions, and campaigns are subject to change without prior notice.
As of the most recent revision date, the services offered by Sarno Psychotherapy Services, Inc., through this website, are as follows:
1. Five-day “intensives” for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (“EMDR”) therapy – the reservation of a block of time, in person, at the office of Dr. Mcayla Sarno in Mission Viejo, California, wherein with sessions for five (5) days in a row, patients are guided through the deeper traumas, convictions, and related memories of their own minds through a combination of psychology and neurology, with one of the leading experts in the cutting-edge field that has steadily gained practitioners and proselytes since its inception in 1988.
2. Individual therapy session – the booking of single, or multiple, in-office psychotherapy sessions with Dr. Mcayla Sarno. Also exclusively available for residents of California for whom the Mission Viejo office would be inconvenient: the booking of Skype or other video chat sessions. The therapy will focus on the constructs of teaching techniques, engaging in exercises, and examining the past.
3. Remote coaching – for those within and outside of California, an option exists for remote coaching, conducted via Skype or other video chat method. Coaching differs from therapy in that it is exclusively present and future focused, and does not and cannot engage in any form of retrospective analysis regarding the psychology of the coaching client (as distinct from a therapy patient). If it is determined by Dr. Mcayla that coaching is insufficient for the needs of a client, that client will be encouraged to seek psychotherapy help with a reputable practitioner in their area, either in conjunction with coaching by Dr. Mcayla, as agent for the Company, or in place of such advice and assistance from the Company.
4. Online programs, guided courses, and other information products – the Company makes available for purchase a variety of information products related to psychotherapy, mindset coaching, and other issues. These products are self-directed on the part of the customer, who is able to use such products either in conjunction with therapy (through the Company or otherwise) or independent of therapy. Like any journey, that of self-discovery is not without risk, and travelers are urged to take safety measures. If in the course of engaging in introspection or other activities under the guidance of the product, the customer begins to experience raw or otherwise difficult or confusing emotions, that individual is encouraged to seek licensed therapy as soon as possible, particularly if such therapy has not already been in process.
