“Really enjoyed the day. The positive message is empowering. It has given me a better understanding into PTS and helped me with my own self-reflection. Thank you Nola.”

“Enjoyed knowing I reacted normally to an abnormal event. Learnt I need to do more to heal.(like) be a happy tree……I felt it was a long day for me. A lot of emotions to process.”

“Loved it. Very proactive. Delivered achievable strategies, demystified PTS. Most enlightening.” Additional comments from delegate: “Thanks so much for your empowering and thought provoking workshop….found your content to be most useful and holistic in… style, which traditional medical fails (to) achieve.”

Our speaker(s) for this event are carefully selected from within the Serenidad team and include our Founding CEO, Nola Hennessy, recognized by the US military as a subject matter expert on and motivator about successful and full rehabilitation from post trauma symptoms. Nola holds post graduate qualifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy, related psychology models and remedial therapies. 

In this seminar, the speaker(s) shares first-hand experiences in managing life and perceptions under sometimes crippling pressures and recovery and healing from post-trauma symptoms. The seminar is designed and delivered in such a way as to empower people to take control of their own life and health outcomes, and bring a refreshed insight into a topic that is still shrouded in mystery, and considered by many to be “too hard to talk about”.

Our multi-award award-winning adult book of the same name and children’s book on trauma and resilience “Feronia – The Little Girl Who Learned to Fly Free”, will be made available as complimentary copies to all attendees of this seminar. Our other books may also be purchased at the event or through our website or distributors.
