FEEDBACK

“I also wanted to say how good today was and specifically how good you are as a trainer. You know the material inside out and so are amazing there but also the way you explain the material, respond to people in the group. You are a really good trainer.”

“It was really a fantastic three days. The model is really relatable and makes sense and I can see how these techniques could be so useful to clients. I can’t wait to do the second workshop and learn even more about how to work with these complex clients. All material is delivered with passion and conviction, and all questions the group asked were answered comprehensively”

“Arnie really helped me understand this process in such a simple way which I need! Thoroughly enjoyed it despite reservations to start”

“Excellent course. Very Informative. Really good engaging presentation. I have learnt so much and feel very enthused about starting to use schema therapy in my practice. Thank you! I found the experiential nature of the course invaluable for my learning and understanding!”

“This session has made me want to learn more”

“Very good overview of schemas, with examples. Imagery demonstration with examples of how this works and how to work with the person after this”

“Mandy has a very strong understanding of Schema therapy. Her workshops are interactive and informative. Mandy is enthusiastic when presenting and teaching the model. I found her workshop very interesting and will definitely attend any further workshops that Mandy runs.”

“I found the workshop – Schemas, Modes & Relationships very informative, practical where the information/theory is transferable into the counselling room and an excellent way to improve how clients communicate within a relationship.  The Schema Trainer had a wealth of knowledge and examples of work and was able to relay this effectively, motivational and calmly.  Excellent, will attend further workshops in the future.”
