Your webinar has done me an awful lot of good. I haven't felt as comfortable, free and light hearted for ages as I do now after the course. I just wanted to tell you that, and thank you very much
So honestly presented - thank you very much for this beneficial, strengthening offer
The webinar war so valuable for me. Your calmness and sovereignty did me good. Thanks for everything, and the encouragement.
Sabine, remedial nurse
Despite the online distance
(and this is quite amazing for me) I felt very comfortable and safe. Your empathic, clear and soothing instructions and exercises have done me a lot of good
The exercises were really good for me. I am now in focus. Thank you!
After the webinar I worked on my picture a few more times ... playing with it, discovering more. Everything I found was so valuable. Thanks again
for the afternoon!
Gertrud, pediatric therapist
It is so exciting to see how you are bringing something to life that you feel exactly is on at this very moment and thereby accompany other people
The workshop opened up new spaces I had never created before. I painted new outlooks and found new possibilities. My stress did go away and the mood improved - thank you!
I was surprised that focusing helped me to focus on my inner sensation, to reveal the discomfort in my body and that the body itself knows and answers my request. And third, I was surprised that the answer was on the surface. It was like I didn't want to notice it and drove it out of my awareness. Now I feel connected. Thank you
