“An incredible and robust training experience – embedded within an extremely well researched framework – providing current real-time data and surveys, opportunity for interactive groups and discussion on interesting case studies. I was blown away by the breath and scope of this training which delivered therapeutic resources and skills in compassionate, generous, learned and humble manner. It was my first time to participate on one of Gerry Cunningham’s training programmes and I feel most grateful for the experienced and learning it offered.”
