WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"L". Practicum Student 
Introduction to Private Practice Workshop

Tyne's workshop was both timely and informative...transitioning from university into private practice can be a daunting task. She provided a realistic picture of what to expect and practical strategies to navigate the steps of establishing a private practice. I left the workshop with increased confidence and excitement for what the future may hold.

"J." RCC 
Introduction to working with Trauma Workshop

The workshop was well put together and very informative.  Her presentation style is very relaxed and as an instructor she is very clear and easy to follow.  This workshop was so helpful in me starting my practice as a new therapist that I decided to take it twice. 

"D." RCC
Introduction to working with Psychological and Narcissistic Abuse Workshop

This workshop really covers how psychological and narcissistic abuse get missed in clinical settings and gave me practice tools and skills to better identify when there may be deeper issues for my clients and how to tactfully work with these clients.  I really loved how the material was presented and  the different ways to incorporate common skills for counselling that have such a great impact on our clients. This workshop changed how I practice.
