“This has been so helpful as a way of working and thinking about dreams. I like Stephen’s approach and would like further training on dreams if Stephen does such training. Thank you for the professional organisation of the workshop. I always enjoy the events you offer.”
“Thank you Wendy and Stephen for another brilliant day. I had some reservations as I am not hugely confident about my own dreaming or working with dreams. I have found the day accepting and inclusive and I have got a lot more out of it than expected.”
“There was a very ambient, warm and inclusive feeling about this workshop which echoed the content of her relational approach. It felt much more personal than many other online workshops that I have been on. The organisation presented and hosted the workshop very competently.”
“Ruth is an excellent speaker and shows by example the value and efficacy of the truly supportive therapeutic alliance, which gives us such gentle guidance into seeing past the ‘headlines’ to the client’s story.”
“The day was richly filled with personal application and adaptability for the current pandemic, which I greatly appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the journey of the day. The group felt safe to share and that enabled a depth of learning to emerge at a natural pace throughout the time we shared together. I felt that we created something very precious and I’m still feeling the impact.”
“I have really enjoyed today and I am very interested on any future workshops on Jungs work, with Stephen. It has very much brought to life a subject that I have tried to battle with in my head. I have enjoyed the experiential nature of the workshop, very powerful for personal and professional life – it was also safe and deeply held by Stephen.”
“This is by far the best CPD I’ve experienced in a long while. I spend a lot on CPD, and to be honest, nine times out of ten it’s just ok at best. This and previous training I’ve done (both with Christiane) have been worth every single penny.”
I will certainly look for more workshops with Ruth. Please will you ask her back? Ruth has a gift for attuning to a large group with such attentiveness and sensitivity.
Christine was a treasure trove of info and was very engaging. It was enlightening, thought-provoking and gave me a myriad of ideas to take into my therapy room
Excellent speaker and extremely knowledgeable and approachable. Also pleased about being sent a copy of the handouts prior to the workshop
I valued the experiential learning opportunities, energy and humour
‘I enjoyed all of it – lots of content but well paced. The speaker was confident and open in presenting and engaging the audience’
“I particularly enjoyed the experiential nature of the event and that this was so skilfuly and tactfully facilitated.”
Christiane’s presentation was high quality & the day was very engaging. She gave a clear, concise and thorough view of relational trauma and therapist self-care.
I really appreciated the generosity and empathetic approach of this speaker and the participatory nature of the seminar
Speaker excellent, so concise and open, and the day was packed full of content. The experiential exercise was profoundly helpful.
This was a beautiful, balanced and well facilitated seminar
Pam was an excellent speaker. A very relaxed, informative and enjoyable morning.
Very informative, especially in terms of the digital contract, and enabled me to begin facing my fear around social media and online relating.
Pete has been so informative, interesting, engaging and funny – so interesting. I would definitely attend another of his courses.
Thank you. I really enjoyed this and am going away feeling much more confident!
The small nature of the group and the peaceful venue was perfect for learning
Really great workshop. Good balance of theory and practical demo with questions. Also an excellent guided mediation. Thank you.
Brilliant day on fascinating topic with excellent speaker. Learned loads and hungry to explore more. Practical and profound.
Lovely ambience. Perfect speaker. Great support. Intelligent layout. Great value for money.
I liked the group–size, helpful to promoting an atmosphere where engagement and participation is possible. Wonderful speaker dealing with a difficult, painful topic in a positive way that affirms the therapist’s competence.
