Training Internationally on CBT to handle Psychosis Cases

Being effective requires investing in international as well as local course. Each new course provides useful techniques to make me more adept in helping clients. In this course, I learned the importance of understanding the the delusions of those with psychosis: why the delusions are on a particular topic; how important the delusion is for the client’s well-being; why the client is hesitant to let go of it even when it is obviously hurting him. Thank you PGH for this training

Narrative Training

Keeping up the pace and learning still more new interventions makes me more resourced to work the toughest cases. Incest and abuse cases are often inter-generational patterns of abuse that are kept hidden by family members who are shrouded in shame.

Resource Speaker for PVPI on Wellness in the workplace

Mental Health Speaker for Wellness in the Workplace

My career has taken an unexpected turn …a happy happy turn of events. Because the pandemic has side-lined health in the workplace, companies are doing all they can to support their employees at these harrowing times.

It was such an opportunity to coach these young founders 3 years in a row!
