 I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the presentation yesterday and how valuable I thought it was. I have been working in pain management in private practice for several years and I was pleasantly surprised that yesterday gave me fresh ideas about how to conceptualise clients' experience of pain and present the information to them. (Suzanne, Clinical Psychologist)  

 I found the workshop very practical with skills that I can apply straightaway in therapy. (Evelene, Psychologist)

 I love the vibe of your workshops - they're always so friendly!
