Workshops_Flyer (PDF) For many clients with traumatic experiences the consequences of these reach far beyond the primary symptoms of PTSD, anxiety and affective disorders, as many will have suffered long lasting changes in their personality.

$365 – $425

Workshops_Flyer (PDF) Chronic and recurrent mental health problems are often not just a challenge to the patient but also to the therapist, as these severe conditions frequently defy standard treatment approaches.
