“This training deepened my therapy practice. It was an inspiring day and its hands on approach really resonated with me. Working with the sand was moving and powerful. Thank you Jon”

“This medium blew me away- what a great resource to work with clients especially those who find it hard to express and articulate their inner world. It is taught very well indeed, and I highly recommend this to therapists.”
