We are all born wired to love! This template is in our cells. People everywhere, from all walks of life are not just ready for it, they are L O N G I N G to love and be loved like they’ve never been hurt before. Children deserve love, the kind of love that makes them thrive, not just survive. Our comrades, communities and classrooms need connection not isolation, compassion not judgment, creativity not containment.
It seems that when our systems become overwhelmed, we forget how to love. And we are in trouble…children continue to be abused, ignored or scapegoated, relationships break up, communications break down, addictions block presence, politicians peddle fear, trauma is passed on from generation to generation. Returning our systems, our families and our communities back to an alignment with love is not just a necessity, it is entirely possible.
Are you ready to be the change you want to see in the world?
Therapists who really get that love can change the world and are called to create a counselling practice founded on connection, compassion and creativity are invited to train with me to become registered Somatic Sand Therapists (SST) and Somatic Attachment Focused Expressive Therapists (SAFE-T), to Liberate Love in themselves and in their clients. It is an opportunity to join a growing tribe of heart-centered counsellors who are not only ready to embrace their own barriers to loving unconditionally, but are ready to take a stand for humanity. You’ll learn what it takes to support your clients with loving presence toward greater security in their relationships. This is a movement, a cause. And it calls for professionals who are ready to become certified and trained in my Somatic Attachment Focused Expressive Therapy® and Somatic Sand Therapy® Training programs.
Both my Somatic Sand Therapy® training and my SAFE-T® training programs will give you access to my unique practice methods and teachings. A fusion of 20 years of personal and professional effort, suffering and insight, teaching therapists the art of presence, working with children who’ve been abused, children at risk of exclusion in the school system, parents who struggle to see their children through the eyes of compassion, adults affected by childhood sexual abuse and family violence, parents experiencing separation and divorce and the impact on the family, couples in distress, schools recovering from suicide, adults whose lives have been forever impacted by the loss of adoption and the lessons learned from my own attachment history, my own trauma, my own extensive journey of parenthood, my own journey of love, identity, sexuality, divorce and loss along with my ongoing journey of recovery, resilience and integration.
Imagine being among a group of therapists that stands out above the rest – not because they have read more books, or conducted more research, or even seen more clients. No, that’s not what will set you apart.
Accredited Training Courses for Professionals
Exceptional therapists have the courage to visit openly the dark places in their own history in order to bring integration and wholeness to their hearts and lives. They do this relentlessly so that they can shine a very bright light for others to follow. These are the therapists that truly change the world. They take their clients where they have already been. They become role models for others in the field. They do this because of their commitment not just to heal the places inside that may need some loving attention, but to live an extraordinary life. These therapists are not simply practitioners – they are leaders.
Just imagine what it might be like to really find your tribe, to feel an unwavering sense of belonging, to take a stand for what you believe in, and to make a purposeful and meaningful contribution. To co-create a legacy founded on LOVE. Sound good?
If you feel moved to make a difference and called to learn more with a growing tribe of like-minded professionals cheering you on, I invite you to consider joining this movement to LIBERATE LOVE.
I have worked with hundreds of people and witnessed lives transform. I am passionate about leading you to do the same…

But be warned: These are not just your average run-of-the-mill training programs…
Attachment System Repair
This beautiful, courageous work is designed to cultivate necessary levels of safety in order to nurture repair and realign with attachment security. But it’s waaaaaaaay more than that. It’s love-fuelled, intuitive, soulful and generous. It’s educational, a little bit sciencey and incredibly practical. It’s steeped in kindness, creativity, resonance and boundless love.
I’ve been described as, “having a rare gift for generating a sense of safety, trust and respect, delivering knowledge, skills and experience in a clear, engaging, personable and easy-to-understand way.” As being, “knowledgeable, generous, inspiring, fun, a great listener, gentle, inspirational, passionate, wise, articulate, committed, dedicated, warm, calming, heart-centred, unique and highly experienced and professional”.
How these Certificate Training Programs work:
Embrace your own Liberation first.
Identify your attachment style. Explore how it developed and how it shows up in your life now. Learn how to self-regulate and re-orient back to security, often. Embody self-love and compassion. Use Symbology to create the change you seek. Undertake a process to become more aligned with your authentic Self. Then take what you’ve learned and explore with clients.
These unique, heart-centered, multi-modal and integrative training programs promise to challenge your ideas about what love and healing is all about. Not only will you be learning to help others – they will inspire you to redefine your values about community and renew your self-love vows.
These training programs will deliver the ‘science’ of the work as well as provide an opportunity for you to literally experience the healing power of Somatic Sand Therapy® and Somatic Attachment Focused Expressive Therapy®. I have developed this body of work over my 20 years of teaching, training, counselling and holding space for others to transform their lives in my various professional roles.
It’s this perfect combination (sciencey, educational, experiential, creative, embodied and loving) that makes this work so unique and so unrivalled. I promise that not just your clients, but your own heart as well, will give you a round of applause at the end of these training programs. They will transform your counselling practice, rewire your neurology and enrich your relationships. You will graduate laden with tools to empower and liberate love within yourself and your clients.
This work is about way more than simply supporting our clients to feel heard. It’s about sewing love into all the right places. It opens the door for little miracles to occur. For yourself, for your clients and for your community.
Who are these Certificate Training Programs for?
- Graduates who’ve got the piece of paper and now need the tools to really get to the heart of the issue with their clients.
- Experienced Counsellors who are ready to transform and realign their practice with love and security.
- Anyone who wants to replace burnout with a renewed, sustainable and deeply compassionate view of their clients.
- Professionals who simply get a big, “YES” for it. My kinda people…
It’s for those who resonate with my message. People who are not only ready to support clients from a deeply compassionate place but who also feel called to champion the message of living life from a place of empowered, embodied security. To help steer humanity back to a place of love and kindness. People who are committed to enhancing both authentic community and self-love. Who value attunement – that deeply delicious feeling of being seen and understood. It’s for professionals who want to make a difference, a meaningful contribution to life – without burning out.
It’s for Counsellors, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Social Workers, Youth Workers, Chaplains, Guidance Officers, Welfare workers, Behaviour Management Specialists, Foster Carers, Allied Health Professionals, Sexologists, Relationship Educators, anybody who works to support the well-being of children, young people, parents or adults. People who want to integrate this work into their own professional work, or who want to incorporate the work in its entirety.
It’s for client-focused therapists who value working intuitively and with loving presence with their clients. It’s for counsellors who want to learn the practice of working with clients from the heart, who are willing to turn up physically and engage in a hands-on exploration of relationship – the very vulnerable dance between themselves and another. The depth to which we explore this in ourselves is the depth to how well we support the growth and healing of it in others.
