Feedback from Participants

Here what participants said about this course...

"Thank you so much. I loved the course."

"Loved the resources."

"There were great ideas in this for experienced therapists to extend their practice toolkits. The presenters are both lovely people with great skills and knowledge in the field. It was interesting to see how these established therapists have adapted to online working... some using actual online tools such as the therapy rooms and others about facilitating joint creativity online using concrete materials. Overall this is a course worth doing and recommending to various colleagues."
