Our First 1000 Days: A Diploma in Applied Pre and Perinatal Psychology

Develop the capacity to listen and be present to self and other through profound healing and integration of the deeply embodied, early experiences of conception, gestation, birth and early childhood - our first 1000 days. When we are willing to inquire into this rich, and often unconscious realm of personal and collective psychology, we gain access to the foundations of our own creative potential. This awareness makes us more available to being with others, both professionally and in close relationships.

This is a one-year training presented in two, five weekend parts designed to develop deep listening skills and heighten self- awareness for those who work with people; therapists, healers, coaches, medical staff, doulas, midwives, counsellors, parents and parents to be, both as a CPD programme and for those on a self-development path.
