I believe this was probably the best training that I’ve ever received. It certainly is the most life-changing! The information in this course brings the capacity to alter lives and to change the world for the better. Honestly! The training should be mandatory for every educator and mental health provider and it certainly should be shared with each and every new parent.


This course crystalized my Self Reg Learning Journey

December 5, 2023

This course was thorough and helped me begin to think about how to see Self Reg through the lens of just about any human on the planet. I learned a great deal in the Foundations course and was not expecting that I would be able to get much more after such a great first course. The level to which everything is taught in the Facilitators course is amazing. One of my favourite parts of the course was the constant interaction with course leaders and participants. I would highly recommend this course!


A personal revelation

November 26, 2023

This journey has been a personal revelation, transcending my professional sphere. The Facilitator’s course doesn’t just scratch the surface; it delves into the intricate science and practical applications of the five steps across the five domains. It’s a comprehensive exploration that goes beyond theoretical knowledge, fostering a profound transformation in both personal and professional aspects of life.


Great course!

July 30, 2023

After ECD and foundation you just need to know MORE and facilitator course give you that. It deepens the understanding of stress, energy and calmness not only for oneself but for the family, community or any person you want to share it with. The hw gives a lot of points to think about. I feel that it made a lot of difference for my family and for the families i work with. Highly recommended!


Self-Reg paradigm

July 23, 2023

It is a life changing experience to shift from the self-control paradigm to the Self-Reg paradigm! The Foundations course was eye-opening I thought I would not learn a lot in the Facilitators course but I was wrong. Somehow you are going deeper and deeper into the five steps of Self-Reg and even though you are learning a lot, you want more and more.
