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. – Arwyn, Clinical Psychologist

Thank you, Nadene. Befriending the Body was a great webinar. I used strategies from it over telehealth the very next day. Bonnie, Psychologist, Western Australia
