Training & Workshops

Why do a workshop?

There’s a powerful connection that’s created between people coming together to share experiences, deepen their understanding and to learn and grow. This work is deeply grounded in the science of Attachment Theory, Somatic Experiencing, Gestalt Psychotherapy and the principles of Compassionate-Focused Therapy.

Workshops can be tailored to suit your particular organisation’s or group’s needs or you may choose as an individual to join an existing workshop.

Topics we can cover include:

  • Trauma
  • Resilience building
  • Self- care and self -awareness
  • Mindfulness methods
  • The science of the nervous system

Carissa also runs specialised women’s workshops. For more information on her sacred women’s work, click here.
