Schema Therapy for individuals
“Rita and Ruth are wonderful presenters, very engaging, very gentle, very respectful/encouraging excellent content.”
“Rita and Ruth’s training was excellent and the positive group dynamic was what stood out the most.”
“The handouts, materials and scripts were really supportive in allowing me to apply the knowledge and skills learnt after the course. I really like the self-reflection and discovery aspects of the course, and to experience and benefit from experiential practices (e.g., somatic bridge) and to have the entire experience rounded up with the Healthy Adult Embodiment practice for grounding.”
“Really enjoyed learning from both the trainers, and they were able to address any questions from the participants and share their personal experiences which was helpful.”
