Praise for Befriending the Body Made Simple

Thank you for your amazing webinar. Your teaching brings together so many different elements of my professional experience and trainings, as well as my own personal discoveries. Coming from CBT origins, I have gradually been moving towards more body-oriented approaches. I have personally been drawn to yoga, nature connectedness, dance and drumming (and recently discovered nature journalling) for my own wellbeing, but didn’t have a roadmap for how to incorporate what I have learned for my patients. I am looking forward to finding ways that I can incorporate these ideas from the webinar into my work.

I really enjoyed this webinar, Befriending the Body. Lots of ideas and skills, and Nadene generously shared lots of videos as part of the webinar, would recommend.
Rebecca, Psychologist

Across all her courses, Nadene uses her extensive clinical experience, encyclopaedic knowledge, and passion for pedagogy to synthesise complex clinical concepts into digestible and, most crucially, practical learnings for clinicians of any level of knowledge and experience. Befriending the Body is an apt example of Nadene’s profound gift in integrating diverse areas of clinical practice into a consistent, client-focused, and evidence-based approach to treatment. You walk away with ideas, insights, and inspiration for the “why and how” of augmenting individual’s healing journeys through supporting them in safely reconnecting with their earth-based instrument. Befriending the Body represents the very essence of clinical excellence!
