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

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!
