    TESTIMONIALS: What Previous Attendees Are Saying:

    As a lay person, I found the workshop was easy to understand and very informative. The meditations showed me how I could heal in a demonstrable way and gave results immediately. Steve was an engaging and knowledgeable tutor. He had a sense of humour which made a difficult topic easier to digest. The tutor made difficult neuroscience easy to access by using stories. There was a good balance between theory and practical. All in all, it was a comprehensive introduction to trauma and how to recover from it. Emma S., Trauma Survivor (25/1/21)

    Excellent course, very informative. This is the third time I'm participating in the events you're organising and as always I've found the content very interesting and well worth the investment. Florina E. 12/12/20

    I really enjoyed this course and found the content fascinating! It will help me better understand my friend who has gone through childhood trauma, and I can also directly apply the methods outlined in the ‘accelerating the brain’s healing process’ to myself (am recovering from chronic stress and burnout so this was extremely useful!!) Mimi M., Business Analyst, 5/12/20

    Good course, comprehensive. Good to have so much detail about the brain mechanisms, dissociation and recovery. I am extremely grateful to Wale Oladipo for these workshops and resources. Alex W. 5/12/20)

    Thank you for a truly informative and inspiring training day.  I learned so much and would say that this is the best training that I have attended in a long time (and I have attended many), in terms of delivery, pace and content. I would not hesitate to recommend this training to anyone who wishes to understand more about Trauma, the brain and recovery. It stands out as Gold Star amidst the sea of training that is currently available. Shirley M., Teacher, Trainer & Therapeutic Counsellor (5/12/20)

    Fantastic course and thoroughly enjoyed the format, as well as Steve’s meditations that he did on the course. Nick M., Counsellor, 28/11/20 )

    Thank you so much for that amazing webinar. I am a trauma survivor and feel absolutely amazing after learning more about myself and doing those exercises – I will be doing them for the next 21 days without fail! 😊 Claire Y., 10/11/20 )

    Really recommend the event to anyone interested in trauma. Presenter was great made the even easy to follow by using useful metaphors. I think there was the right amount of interaction to learning ratio and the sessions were really useful and informative. Jamie W. Education Mental Health Practitioner 10/11/20 )

    "I thoroughly enjoyed today and have learnt so much as a newly qualified psychotherapist, so I would just like to thank you for holding this hugely enriching workshop. I have found it difficult to encounter training and development opportunities such as those offered by yourselves and will definitely be attending more!" Amrita S. Psychotherapist (3/7/20)

    "Changing the course to on-line was brilliant, especially with the current lockdown scenario. The course content was very insightful, with many useful resources and perspectives that other practitioners can find useful within a counselling context, combined with useful exercises that can help myself/other individuals to defuse the impact of stressful life events. I really enjoyed the course and felt refreshed and feeling I have more tools to add to my toolkit of therapeutic tools." Beverley R., NHS Counsellor, (13/6/20)

    "I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and found your delivery and content captivating and insightful, both in a deeply personal way and in a very beneficial professional capacity. I was especially taken with just how accessible you made a complex subject with your explanations and analogies. As well as humanising it with your account of your own personal experience! That was particularly profound. Thank you for sharing! I am a policy developer for a UK police force and we are currently working to bring trauma informed practice into our service. I will certainly be advocating your work." Suzi G. (19/6/20)

    "Very useful and thought-provoking course with hugely insightful content, which can be adopted in practical ways to support client healing." Hollie P., Trainee Therapist (20/6/20)

    The webinar was interesting, informative, and gave me a lot to think about. I would recommend it to anyone who feels they want to tackle their trauma, as well as professionals working with those who have experienced trauma." Robin F. Artist Practitioner (20/6/20)

    "I thought the event was wonderful, Wale has so much passion and knowledge and made learning a pleasure. I would recommend this training to my colleagues, but it was also approachable for people with PTSD." Rebecca F., Dance Movement Psychotherapist (20/6/20)

    Would recommend the course / courses provided by Mindbody Breakthrough. Excellent content, delivery, knowledgeable facilitator and no travel due to being an online webinar, affordable prices too, what’s not to like!!" Carole C., Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

    "Really useful & insightful I really enjoyed the details about the brain which I can use to help to explain to clients that I am working with. Grateful that we will receive the recorded session as it was a lot of information to take in." Katerina D. Assistant Psychologist (13/6/20)

    "Thank you for making this possible online. Going through it on my own pace it was more beneficial than attending face to face. Meditations are great. I am both a professional working with children with autism as a paediatric doctor but also a mum of an autistic boy but I am also a survivor of childhood trauma. I would like to know more about autism and trauma." Dr Andreea G., (13/6/20)

    "Thank you so much for an excellent trauma course today. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was fascinating and really useful. While face to face is always better the Zoom course worked well and it meant I could go for a quick run in the lunchbreak! I am a critical care paramedic on an air ambulance and I am also the patient liaison clinician, so support our patients and their families after their incident. I therefore have a professional interest in trauma and recovery. I want to be able to recognise when help is required for both my patients who have experienced trauma and my colleagues who have chronic exposure to dealing with it (but will never admit!) I hope that I can signpost them somewhere. I also have a personal interest as I was diagnosed with PTSD 2 years ago after much denial before the freeze response stopped me! I have also had a traumatic birth and so the postnatal depression chat was really interesting. Having had rewind therapy I was really interested to hear the neuroscience behind it. I loved the analogies to the CEO/security guard/filing cabinets and I feel I can use that to try to explain it. Thank you. I think my colleagues could benefit from this day and I will definitely look at your online resources and other courses." Kate A. Parademic (19/6/20)

    "I’ve just attended (online via Zoom) a training day about Trauma and the Brain. I just wanted to write and say a big thank you to Wale. The course was excellent and I will definitely recommend to other colleagues and professionals. It was well presented and structured and gave me new information as well as reinforcing existing information. Trauma is an area i'm passionate about from a professional and personal point of view so Thanks again Wale - Amazing!" Heather D., Integrative Counsellor (19/6/20)

    "Really great – pitched perfectly with lots of the supporting science. Loved your metaphors which make recall much easier. Thank you." Emma F., Student Counsellor (19/6/20)

    I really enjoyed how the brain functions were explained, how the polyvagal theory was introduced and summarised. The course was very accessible to beginners and I enjoy that we have meditations to try." Krissy S, Trainee Therapist (13/6/20)

    Why don't you come and judge for yourself? 

    If you feel this course can benefit you or any of your family members, friends or colleagues, why don't you let them know about the event and give it a try? 

    Those who have attended the event in the past always said that they were glad they made the investment even though they were a little bit unsure at the start (See previous attendees feedback below).

    What to do next

    All you need to do is to register your ticket to attend this event now.  The event is expected to be oversubscribed as there are very limited spaces. So book your seat now to avoid disappointment. Please only register if you are sure that you will be able to attend this event. We really want every ticket taken to be used on the day. Thank you for your co-operation.

    Why is the event subsidise and what is the catch?

    The first reason this course is subsidised is networking. Relationships are very important. In a live event like this, there is ample opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share experiences, get motivated and discover what is working for others. I have been able to meet and connect with some amazing people at events such as this one.

    The second reason why this is a subsidised event is the feedback that we get from our attendees. This is extremely useful. It helps us improve our courses and get better in serving others.

    Is this going to be a hardsell opportunity?

    We practise authenticity because that is one of our highest values. MindBody Breakthrough does not use hard selling tactics because manipulation eventually leads to failures and stress at some point down the line. 

    If you enjoy the day and think that any of our materials, online courses or future workshops can be beneficial to you personally or to your work, then we can discuss options once you have completed this full day. We just want you to come and enjoy the day, acquire additional helpful skills and make new friends.

    Spot allocation is on a first-come-served basis due to limited availability. If you are planning to attend please reserve your spot asap.

    A certificate of attendance will be issued.

    I look forward to seeing you there,

    Best regards,

    Wale Oladipo
