I’ve loved the work of Dr Gabor Maté for some time – in fact you’ll see many of his books listed on my Recommended Reading page – and so I’m delighted to announce that I recently completed his amazing Compassionate Inquiry short e-learning course.
It’s a fabulous course and I feel that I’ve learnt so much about how best to support people who
- have experienced trauma
- are caught up in repeating, unhelpful patterns – including addictions
- are currently going through Continuing Traumatic Stress Response (also known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD / complex PTSD, however for some people the trauma might be ongoing – ie it’s not ‘post’, and also I don’t see this as a ‘disorder’, rather as a survival response)
This learning is already adding a whole new depth and richness to my practice!
If you’d like to know more about what this looks like in practice, and how it could support you in your healing journey, just get in touch.
