Feedback from recent workshops

Neurodivergence in the Community

“Frankness & openness of the tutor and her enthusiasm for the subject was infectious.”

Exploring Neurodivergence in the Therapy Room Workshop

“I can speak, confidently, for the whole team when I say that we found it really informative and interesting. The level of knowledge that you have around working with people who are neurodivergent is clearly evident and shared in such a way that it meant we felt confident in incorporating what we learned into our practice in the counselling room. You have a natural flair for putting people at ease and a warmth in the way you present. Thank you again.”
