In The Field

The Hawkesbury River region of NSW, Australia

Professional Training for CSBs and Embodied Counsellors

Prerequisite
Certificate in Sexological Bodywork (CSB) or Introductory Certificate in Embodied Counselling (ICEC)

Purpose

This experiential training offers CSBs and ICECs the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge set. Participants engage in nearly a month of daily embodied practices, and share about their experience in a private online group. There are then 3 days of professional development training at Yanada, followed by 6 days of practice with real clients, along with input, feedback and mentoring on your client work and group facilitation skills. You will receive in-depth professional supervision from Uma, Betty and Deej, all in a stunning retreat centre in the Hawkesbury River region of NSW. We keep the group small in order to give you personal attention.

Program Components

Embodied Practice and Discussion
Enhance and fine tune your personal practice with 4 weeks of guidance, sharing and discussion in a community of peers.

Professional Development Training
3 days of in-depth experience and practice in the Wheel of Consent with Betty, client-led sessions with Uma and somatic education and embodied counselling with Deej.

In The Field Clinic Week Intensive

Facilitated by Uma, Betty and Deej

Participants will:

  • develop their somatic sex education skills through the process of working with real clients on authentic learning objectives, and having immediate access to input from peers and facilitators before and after sessions.
  • develop their coaching and mentoring skills in ongoing small group processes, and have the opportunity to reflect on their work to improve practice.
  • have essential input, experience, and feedback in facilitating groups.
  • receive regular supervision in small groups and one-on-one from the facilitators.
  • engage in regular embodiment classes, erotic rituals and meditations, and spend a wonderful week connecting with their peers and building networks and community.

How it works

After the 4 weeks of practice, we meet at a beautiful residential retreat centre for 3 days of professional development (as described above). Then real clients arrive for the Growing in Embodiment Retreat. You will be giving these clients daily one-on-one sessions and teaching group classes, with the support and mentoring of Deej, Betty and Uma
