Have you been working on your patterns for what seems like a lifetime (and are you feeling somewhat frustrated that they still have a hold)? Would you like to find a way of working that would change these patterns once and for all?

This six-week further skills training (which will be a pilot in 2024) is led by Tonya Christie and is for trained co-counsellors who would like to take their CoCo practice to a deeper level. There will be several new tools introduced to support you to get results.

Tonya has been teaching face-to-face Fundamentals for 30+ years (and has recently been teaching them online (and internationally) four times a year). She is the first person to teach CoCo online. She also trains CoCo teachers annually online and encourages the development of CoCo facilitators within peer learning teams.

She now wishes to offer something new to co-counsellors that will bring alive an emerging paradigm within the CoCo network and takes it into the transpersonal arena: a personal direction that CCI co-counselling founder John Heron envisaged might develop for experienced co-counsellors. The course may also be of interest to those who want to openly acknowledge the journey of the soul in their CoCo practice.

The training, which will run online and is open to co-counsellors internationally  will take the format of weekly online group sessions over six weeks from May to June 2024. There will be a second module of six weekly sessions (with a two-week integration break in the middle) in the autumn (November to December 2024).

There are limited places on this pilot course (and it will only run if ten people sign up to take part). This will create an effective learning environment that has sustainable energy for growth and new learning.

It is the only time that this pilot training will be offered at this suggested price in recognition of developing deeper CoCo explorations.

Please contact Tonya at your earliest opportunity to register your interest. You will need to be a trained CCI co-counsellor to take part. There will be intro events to get involved in in the run-up to the course starting, so we would advise getting in touch with Tonya to express interest and you will then be informed of these.

(Follow the process through and fill in your details and you will get all the latest news on the course, as it happens).

Looking forward  to hearing from you!

The timings below are all BST (British Summer Time).

The dates of the autumn training (part 2) will be as follows: evenings of Tuesdays November 5, 12, 19 and December 3, 10 & 17 (same times as spring training, BST and then UTC once clocks change).

Some testimonials from co-counsellors taking part in Tonya's trainings (both Fundamentals and further skills):

Although I have been through trainings with 3 other CCI Facilitators over the years, none of them offered the warmth, vulnerability and pure honesty that you brought to this group. Your commitment to being completely "in THIS moment" has never before been so clearly modeled to me.

I don't have appropriate words for the sort of kind space and presence you have held me and the group in through these weeks .Thank you ...for just being you. And embodying the sort of grace, strength and vulnerability I hope to emulate.

Bravo!! you are an amazing facilitator. you make people feel safe, welcome, at ease, with lightness and humour and a depth.

I really like your teaching style and to be reminded of co-counselling's powerful skills. I found the way the group all worked together great, thanks so much for facilitating that safe place for me to learn and grow. As others said, I too feel a positive shift in how I’m feeling and clearer about who I am, though it’s taken a week for me to realise this.

This was the most intensive /powerful, Fundamental training I have ever experienced, my warmest congratulations

Your facilitation skills were excellent with just the right balance for me of being directive and letting the day unfold. I got so much out of the course. Really enjoyed the whole experience

Thanks again for an amazing weekend - you are a gifted space holder/alchemist - so much magic occurred in that room, it felt very special to be part of it... :)

I don’t work with anyone the way I work with you. You’re on a totally different level. You’re authentic in what you say and what you do and what you think. You are bringing life-changing awareness to people.

I really appreciate your ability to make people feel safe that they can authentically share their deepest selves. I feel enormously and irreversibly different about how I relate to everything and everyone. Thank you for being there with and for me.

Tonya. I never thought I could or would change. I am finally starting to live and love life. It’s amazing! Wow! Just wow! Its beautiful! It gets better all the time

Having a day with warm lovely people that was well facilitated and felt safe and gave me the opportunity to grow was very helpful to me.

I liked Tonya’s flexibility and openness and willingness to take risks. Warmth, safety, trust. I felt nurtured. Thanks so much Tonya.

Thank you for a brilliant day - profound and inspiring!

You are 100% coherent in everything you say and do.

I don’t know that I have ever been on a course that has such open spontaneous energy – enabled me to feel that flow – I honour you for that.

Openness and integrity; allowing everyone to be who they are and that is rare

Thanks for being on the journey with us – made it so much more human and honest and taught me a lot.

You remain aside from judgements about age, gender, class, whatever...

I love seeing how you bond a group so amazingly.

Boundaried but also anarchistic – you create a cohesion and vibe that makes people want to stay in the group

Tonya is both generous and  kind and has a big heart. She has a genuine and unique way of helping others to feel validated and self-empowered. I have personally gained a lot of stability and insight while knowing Tonya and I feel blessed that our paths have met. I have noticed that her warm and expansive nature has helped enable me to reconnect with a part of me that I had lost. You’re a huge love generator!

Thank you for holding such a loving space and for bringing so much fun too. You've taught me so much about play and reminded me that it's not all about the shadow work! I sense how intuitive and empathic you are too and I've absolutely loved being around your energy.

How grateful and awed and humbled I am by the grace (and playfulness) with which you create this space for humans to be together in such a respectful, nourishing (and fun) way. I'm experiencing the 'theory' and 'principles' of Co-Co in your presence.’

‘This Coco training has been an eye, ear, head, heart and soul opener for me and I really would like to continue practicing.

‘You do a fabulous job. That rare combination of absolute honesty and authenticity, yet at the same time really professional. Top job!’

I really enjoy working with you – you embody this work. I’ve learnt how to be vulnerable and go with the flow and to take that into the rest of my life

‘I just want this to go on forever,’

My sessions with Tonya have been quite beautiful and ‘kaleidoscopic’ – we’ve touched a wide range of areas and navigated different dimensions of consciousness and time, all with a swift light touch and even some humour.

'The way that Tonya works feels like a combination of laser precision coaching, shamanic journeying, medical mediumship, past life regression, midwifery and innocent playfulness. I trust her clarity of perception and loving embrace implicitly, and wish everyone could experience some of this.'

I had a really productive day thanks to your
sensitive and expert guidance to us all throughout the day. I am so
impressed by the way you are able to set the scene and create and
maintain a safe emotional environment, to enable us all to be expressive
without worry. Marvellous!

I thought your facilitation was excellent and you are a shining example of how work on yourself can make you calm, vibrant and joyous about life.

'Your capacity to love is so affirming. Your love is so life-full and so rare in this community.'

I love how you take the opportunity to build communities, something I strive for in my own work too. And how encouraging and inclusive you are!

‘Inspiring capacity. A true leader from the soul.
