Frequently Asked Questions

Although the focus of this entire program is upon trauma transcendence coaching within Psychotherapy, we welcome ALL who feel called to this work.  Together, each one of us has a role to play in building a NEW EARTH model for trauma care  -- one that is built on LOVE; one that celebrates the human spirit; one that normalizes the transcendent and the fact that spiritual journeys often look messy; one that de-pathologizes traumatic expressions of the hero's journey and ultimately, serves in the beautiful awakening (because isn't it about time?) and expansion of planetary consciousness.  

Daybreak Therapy and Training is approved for CE credits by many professional organizations including: the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).  Our training has also been approved for reimbursed PD hours by the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and meets continuing competency / CEU requirements of a number of counselling associations, organizations and regulatory bodies for psychotherapy professionals including the CRPO and OCSWSSW.  

If you need to cancel (for any reason), you will be provided with a voucher to join in any Daybreak training or event anywhere in the world anytime (but no cash refunds will be given). We are a tiny, community-based collective fuelled purely by the intentions and amazing creatrix magic of a small group of therapy practitioners.

Thank you so much for your support of Daybreak Therapy and Training.  We do honestly depend completely on your loving donations and innerstanding on this policy which allows us to in turn provide an expression venue and fair wage platform to all of our world-changing, consciousness-shifting teachers, healers and consultants who live true to their soul callings.

You can mix and match various aspects of this program. For example, one student may wish to go through the Sound Therapy Practitioner certification and also attend the September e-workshop, while attending only half of the hypnotherapy modules.   Another student might complete the foundational and master-level Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy certifications, attend only half the Sound Therapy classes for personal interest, and then skip over all other program modules.
