Our key speaker and facilitator for this event is our Founder, 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 a post-graduate degree in Human Rights, post-graduate qualifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy and related psychology models, and a wide range of remedial therapies. Nola is also a Federal Government award-winning health and safety expert with over 40 years practical experience including in high-to-extreme risk workplaces and scenarios.

In this seminar, participants will hear about and share (as they feel comfortable) first-hand experiences. The seminar is designed and delivered in such a way to empower participants to take control of their own life and health outcomes.

We 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.
