TESTIMONIALS: What Previous Attendees Are Saying:
The course was very informative, full of useful information in large amounts, and enjoyable to be part of. Rachael L., Hypnotherapist
Very interesting and informative. Liked the way you described different parts of the brain using the analogy of 'boss,' 'receptionist' etc. It makes it easier to remember and to imagine and will be useful to use with clients. Julie D., Counsellor
This was a great way to learn about the basics again as this was a refresher from previous courses and studies I have done. It was so interesting the way a complex subject was explained and I really liked the examples the trainer shared. I can’t wait to attend the training on Healing Complex PTSD: The Brain Science of Recovery next week and I will look at other training courses. Amy D., Trauma Skilled Coordinator
Thank you very much for the fantastic presentation. I found it very helpful and informative. Kate B.
Excellent webinar my second one, Wale is extremely knowledgeable with a brilliant way of explaining. A few things that stood out for me, learning about the last stage of our flight or fight response, that genetically we can pass down traumatic genes, the benefits of swimming and breathing out. Thank you :) Carol D. Counsellor and Safeguarding Trainer
Absolutely excellent. Information tied to real world situations brings the knowledge alive. I can see how I can use the brain map & company hierarchy in psych-education which will be very beneficial to clients. Rob H., Counsellor
"I thoroughly enjoyed today and have learnt so much as a newly qualified psychotherapist, so I would just like to thank you for holding this hugely enriching workshop. I have found it difficult to encounter training and development opportunities such as those offered by yourselves and will definitely be attending more!" Amrita S. Psychotherapist
"Changing the course to on-line was brilliant, especially with the current lockdown scenario. The course content was very insightful, with many useful resources and perspectives that other practitioners can find useful within a counselling context, combined with useful exercises that can help myself/other individuals to defuse the impact of stressful life events. I really enjoyed the course and felt refreshed and feeling I have more tools to add to my toolkit of therapeutic tools." Beverley R., NHS Counsellor
"I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and found your delivery and content captivating and insightful, both in a deeply personal way and in a very beneficial professional capacity. I was especially taken with just how accessible you made a complex subject with your explanations and analogies. As well as humanising it with your account of your own personal experience! That was particularly profound. Thank you for sharing! I am a policy developer for a UK police force and we are currently working to bring trauma informed practice into our service. I will certainly be advocating your work." Suzi G.
