I have by chance ended up as a teacher/educator many times in my life. Or maybe not by chance? Because I am attracted to sharing knowledge and facilitating learning and growth? Maybe it is not a coincidence. I like being an educator. I love being present for other beings learning journey. And I do think there is a lot to educate a well as learn about! I say that as a lifelong student and learner myself.
So, what do I educate about?
Equines in Therapy and Learning Programs
I educate and teach about how to become, or how to become a better facilitator in equine assisted interventions, through the foundation and NGO, MiMer Centre, that I founded in 2013 (it became a trust/foundation in 2017).
The education is called Equines in Therapy and Learning programs (EiT/L) and is a level 1-4 training. You can read more about it here: Equines in Therapy and Learning Programs
Equine Assisted Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness (TS-EAM)
TS-EAM is a 10-step program I have developed. It is based on David Treleaven’s ideas about Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness (TSM), experiential learning, equine assisted and nature-assisted (and based) interventions, expressive arts and a couple of other tools for growth, insight and learning.
I am currently developing an online + an in-person training for how to work with TS-EAM. Until that is ready to be launched, I am happy to come and give a bespoke training to you and your staff, at your facility.
I am an accredited trainer from VictimFocus, UK, and I give their 4 basic trainings in:
- Psychology of victim blaming, and self-blame of women and girls subjected to sexual violence
- Critical Perspectives of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and Child Sexual Abuse (CSA)
- Understanding trauma informed practices and theory
- Critical perspectives on Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) scores
Educations on Childhood Trauma, Dissociation and Neurodivergence
I also give bespoke trainings (or talks, lectures, seminars) on the topics of Childhood Trauma and Neglect, Child Sexual Abuse and Exploitation, Dissociation (including DID) and Neurodivergence, Self-Harm, Eating Disorders, and Suicidal Ideation/Suicide, based on my own experiences as well as my studies and trainings, and how I practically work with the consequences of these kinds of trauma, their psychological defenses and coping strategies, both for myself, as well as for others. I do not offer therapy, but other supportive interventions, and I educate aournd these topics.
