Become a part of the solution. Strengthen your healing practice.
The TEFT will revolutionise your healing practice, personally and professionally.
Over 8 months, in an intimate container with Ava, you will journey through guided practice sessions, group trainings, study and private mentoring.
This is the only offering with Ava that is 100% online and includes 1:1 mentoring.

5) How to hold Therapeutic Embodiment sessions and incorporate it into existing offerings
