Break free from the Battlefield

Build the Healthy Adult mode and empower clients in schema therapy


If you’re finding that traditional schema therapy approaches aren’t working in your schema therapy room and feel more like a battle than therapy you’re not alone. 

Banishing critics, battling with coping modes, combative imagery rescripting that uses patriarchal symbols of strength and force can feel too threatening for some clients and abrasive for therapists to deliver.

If you’d like to use imagery that empowers clients, creates internal templates of female strength, power and wisdom and doesn’t rely on symbols of the patriachy or masculine violence…

There is another way. Join me for this masterclass.

Praise for Nadene's trainings

EMDR and schema therapy is an exciting combination of two evidence based approaches. This webinar is so helpful for therapists who are, or would like to, blend the two. Nadene is skilled at distilling her wealth of knowledge and experience into clearly explained and easy to follow concepts. She reassures and encourages therapists to follow the evidence but also use their own creativity to meet their clients needs”. –

Just did Nadene’s polyvagal webinar as someone who has heard of the theory but basically had no further understanding and was always pretty put off by the neuroscience-like terms and how complex it all sounded….but the webinar was super – learned the background I needed in a way which felt simple and accessible, and also how to directly use this with my clients. Feel v skilled up in such a short amount of time and highly recommend! Thanks Nadene!

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!

I’ve just completed Working with Parts- absolutely awesome. I learnt so much, and discovered that there are frameworks that go with some of the ways I’ve been exploring self with clients. I have made up a resource folder with your slides (loads of my notes on!) and I’ve ordered a heap of the books to explore further. You really inspired me!
