Testimonials

This is what participants say about our workshops:

I just want you to know that my process, which began with you in summer, is still going on. It’s so wunderfull! The week in Nijeholdpade really started the ball rolling and changes are noticeable. Thank you both for your great job! Heel erg bedankt 🙂 And I really want to come next year again!

“I would like to say that I feel the workshop applies to anyone, not only those who work with children/students. It’s very helpful in all therapeutic contexts to be aware of nonverbal communication. To have such a depthful experience of one’s own nonverbal life acknowledged and supported, is rare and amplifies the need for more careful attention paid during client/patient sessions. I think your work is extraordinary and I hope that many many people get to experience it in time.”

“I really enjoyed your classes & seeing your lovely manner in teaching all of us! You made the learning so playful, fun, and accessible.” “I am touched of how you created and held such a playful, welcoming, tender, respectful space for us all in the Waveney room. It was such a blessing for me to spend the mornings on your course. Soooooooo glad I chose it!”

“I Ioved the fun elements which you brought into the teaching, the tender, respectful way you held the space for the whole group, and the depth and timing of the exercises. Also the way you led us through the different phases of our own gradual deepening into process and then coming-back-out was absolutely masterful!” “Every time I am amazed how you are able to create such a special atmosphere, which supports everybody to bring out the best they have inside … Thank you very much for staying true to yourself, which help us be more who we are.”

“The honest, open gentleness of the experience has truly transformed me from the inside. It’s like we are all meant for this kind of connection and all the vitality of childhood springs up with even more liveliness when we share time and space together”. “I particularly loved the chance to work on the child in me, and what has persisted, is my ability to use drawing as a focusing tool. Ever since the workshop, I use drawing when my feelings get into a jam; I bring out a pencil and some blank paper and allow the child in me to address the problem. This is helpful to me and has provided me with some new insights”.

“I have done some art therapy training in Manchester years ago and really love wholebody focusing, dance, story telling, ritual and symbols so it was so lovely to have these threads woven together in your workshops. They are so skilled and yet how they engage feels very natural and intuitive. I felt at home with this way of working”.

“A lot of that comes from your modelling – of that way of being with children – which was so inspirational, as well as from the focussing excercises we did. I am sure it has helped in being with my own children at times.” “From René’s very presence which is very tender, gentle, patient, skillful and joyful and firm, you will get a good sense of what it means to embody a Focusing attitude with children.”
