Shape of Emotion Training programmes

We offer a modular training programme which introduces two break through developments in the field of personal development. The first one is a compelling new process for personal inner emotional clearing. The second one is an innovative model and tool for coaches, facilitators and helping professionals working with groups or one on one. 

Level 1 - Foundation

Level 2 - Apprentice

Level 3 - Artisan

Level 4 - Master

Level 1 - Foundation

The learning journey starts with an inner, personal one.  Understanding what emotions and feelings are and the importance of self-work. Why dealing with your own difficult emotions and seeing them as gifts and opportunities is an imperative if any change is to be embarked on.  Learning the process and then practicing it on yourself.  This is the first step in the work.

Feelings and emotions have a great deal of power and effect on our health and well-being. Stress has been dubbed the health epidemic of the 21st century by the World Health Organization. Our Level 1 Shape of Emotion Workshop teaches you how regulate your own emotions so you can turn down or let go of the difficult feelings that cause stress and thrive in today’s fast-paced, stress-filled, overwhelming world.
