What Attendees Are Saying

Polyvagal theory is like the offside rule for me – I understand it when someone explains it to me but then forget. I loved the way you used 3 different diagrams to explain it – I think it will help me to remember. Sara S., CAMHS Psychotherapist (15/2/21)

The workshop was really interesting and I have looked at the vagal stimuli exercise already. I will use it alongside my birth trauma workshops. Andrea H., Midwife,(15.2.21)
