    Training Feedback, Professional Standards & Quality Improvement
    At LifeChange we believe in transparent feedback, peer-learning and continual development and quality improvement of all training offered. This is crucial in maintaining high professional training standards, especially at more advanced and experiential levels of training.Please see below verified comments and feedback for this course from previous therapistparticipants:

    My expectations were met and exceeded. I found participation in the course deepened my experience of myself and I have a better sense of how I might integrate bodywork into my practice. The course flowed in a seamless way with the rhythm of the group. It never felt rushed. It always felt like the “right” amount of time was given to any segment whether it was a process or an exercise.”

    I experienced myself more deeply in my body and gained an awareness and appreciation of the information my body can offer and how that might be brought into my life generally and as a therapist.A word of thanks to the facilitator for being so professional and caring. It’s largely due to your ability to tune into and flow with the group that made the course so enriching and informative for me.”

    An excellent beginning. I have already started to use what I have learnt in my practice, so the course has more than facilitated a basic understanding to enable meaningful body work. Every day offered so many new somatic experiences that I felt I really connected with my body for the first time. I felt truly grounded and compassionately supported as I made my new discoveries.

    This course has moved my therapeutic practice, and my ability to facilitate client change, to a different dimension. By enabling me to incorporate the client’s body in the work I can now truly offer ‘integrative therapy’.

    I hugely enjoyed the course and am feeling the benefits in myself and with my clients too. I am already looking forward to doing the Level 2 training and supervision next year.”

    “Having trained with the team some years ago, we set up our own bodywork peer group and this has been invaluable as a support and resource in working as therapists. LifeChange has continued to provide support in the form of ongoing training modules and supervision, and this allowed us to keep growing and developing in the work as a group.”

    “I have done many ‘bodywork’ courses over the years, but having trained here I realise what was missing – the focus on real experiential integration of the skills (including time and space to do so properly) i.e. understanding/feeling somatically ‘the language of the body’ in and through my body, rather than a purely theoretical or cognitive version which never fully clicked with all my other therapy training. I hope other therapists get a chance to experience what I have. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the holy grail of bodywork.

    “I initially thought that committing to 2-day weekends for training might be challenging and intense – however I now realise that it created a more consistent and safe environment for experiential / somatic work of this nature. A weekend once a month over four or five months felt manageable, but also the right level of intensity for deeper work. The facilitators got the pacing just right day to day, checking in with the energy and levels within the group at all times. As the course progressed so too did the level of challenge, but I always felt encouraged and free to go at my own pace, so I have genuinely found it life changing!”
