Seminar and Webinar Program

“The webinar is filling in the gaps that I had noticed in my work, articulating so beautifully what I’ve not been able to articulate, filling it out, advancing my thoughts and developing my skills in a way that I can access the information, with my own voice, when I am sitting with clients.”

“The webinar series has been the best online learning experience I've had. The information and delivery has been clear, concise and kind. Janina is a gifted teacher. I’ve been inspired after each webinar.”
