Have you ever got caught up in an alarming online exchange and been surprised by your own response? This happened to Carole who found that - in the moment - she was unable to respond effectively without also potentially being drawn into challenging or aggressive online behavior. Choosing to learn from this difficult experience, Carole developed a set of compassionately written Netiquette guidelines which she shares with us today. She hopes that by understanding better what lurks underneath these interactions, we may be more able to respond to each other online with greater care and respect.Find out more »
Working with abuse can be some of the hardest areas we can work with. It's all about the timing and the pace, being able to hold the client with a gentle touch without pushing them further than they choose to go. We can get so interested in the subject matter we can lose the sight of the Client, they're journey can become more interesting or harrowing and maybe we cannot walk with them. When do we know we have stepped outside of our comfort and competency, when do we refer and who to? One of the main awareness we can give our Clients is that they are believed, and it isn't they're fault. Join me and understand the dynamics at play in this work, and real tools to help them process the abuse and bring some closure on the past.Find out more »

Our event will help you connect the love in your heart with the words that come out of your mouth, in every conversation.
Often we are so disconnected from our own truth, intentions, and desires; and the result is a misunderstanding, a fight, conflict, and complete denial of who we are.
I will help you to reconnect you to the truth that you are... your wisdom, your love, your light.
We will guide you through the difficult conversations you have with yourself, your family and children, and your community. You will see the fear, anger, frustration, and guilt; and decide that it feels better to root our conversations in love.
You will be able to have a conversation in any circumstance and feel heard. Valued. Acknowledged.Find out more »

Some may wonder if its possible to counsel those online who have dissociation and the answer is yes. I can discuss that and about the course, I will be teaching later in the year on dissociation and online counseling.Find out more »
