I originally paid for the online program but when the Zoom with Susie became available I signed up. She provides an abundance of information that you just can't get by watching the videos. She connects with the students. And you find yourself truly engaged with what she is teaching you. She takes you through a couple of hypnosis sessions so that we first hand experience what we will be providing to our clients. Great class!

Embodied Mind Theory by Dr. Victoria Stevens was very profound as she explained how emerging from the integration of findings from developmental effective neuroscience, psychoanalysis, systems theories, and trauma research are important shifts in our ongoing exploration of the relationship between mind and body. Very interesting!
