Testimonials - here is what participants had to say:


The two days were well paced, had well organised content enhanced by the Snow White metaphor and wove together therapeutic work with the brain function in a clear and concise way. I felt validated in my work but also challenged to be more collaborative, slow down and think more widely and deeply about interactions between the parts. The Snow White model has helped me to more easily remember the functions, survival responses and attachment characteristics of the different parts.

Naomi's presenting style was excellent. The pace was good, she was interesting and informative and I wasn't bored at all.

Naomi is very capable and knowledgeable about how to move between the theoretical and the practical. The application to the Snow White metaphor provides a different depth to the concept of trauma work.

Psychologist, Geelong


This was the BEST workshop I have to been to in a very long time. Naomi was engaging, extremely interesting and able to relate the concepts to real life. I didn't doze once in her presentation ;-)!! It was well worth the trip from Melbourne to Geelong to see her. I would love to see more workshops from Naomi.

Some years ago, I purchased a copy of Trauma Model Therapy, (Naomi Halpern and Colin Ross), and had found that helpful especially when working with dissociation. This seminar helped me to better understand some of the concepts in the book. I loved the use of the metaphor of Snow White - it seems to help me remember things!

Psychologist, Bendigo


Greater depth of insight into impact of trauma on the human psyche & how important it is to integrate all aspects of our self for deeper understanding & compassion for the human condition. Thank you, Naomi, for your insights. This was an enriching workshop.

Psychologist, Newcastle


I found Naomi's "parts" perspective within the Snow White Model of complex trauma, and the information on the neurological aspects of treatment a most helpful framework. It assisted me to integrate my pre-workshop understandings of complex trauma and strengthens my understandings.

Social Worker, Newcastle

Naomi is a very good “story teller” able to explain things in “plain English” – this brought difficult subject matter into a form that was not traumatic for us
