Help your clients not only survive trauma but THRIVE because of it. 

Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey that will revolutionise your practice and bring profound healing to your clients? Welcome to The Voyage® – a groundbreaking, holistic training programme designed to equip you with the knowledge, tools, and expertise to navigate the complex world of trauma and chronic stress.


Uncover the power of trauma-informed practice

The impact of trauma is far wider spread than most of us realise and the scope of what trauma is and how it manifests is often misunderstood. Without a doubt, there is a high proportion of people living with untreated and undiagnosed trauma.

Join The Voyage® training programme to become a qualified trauma-informed practitioner.

What is The Voyage® Programme?

The Voyage® programme  is a foundational training specifically designed for coaches, counsellors and healthcare practitioners to learn The Voyage® modality and how to work in a trauma-informed way. The Voyage® provides a complete framework along with a methodology and philosophy, of all the theory and practical knowledge needed to work with trauma.

The Voyage® has been developed by Lou Lebentz, drawing on her own lived experience and over 25 years of working in the mental health arena. Lou has developed a deep knowledge and understanding of what lies beneath many of the current challenges impacting so many lives today.

Other approaches, such as talk therapy, often stop being effective at certain points in the healing journey but The Voyage® works in a way that offers an all-encompassing method delivering sustainable and lasting impacts on recovery.

If you are a coach or counsellor and feel you don’t know enough about trauma, are unsure about how to work in an integrated way with the somatic system and perhaps feel stuck and a little alone in your own journey and practice, I invite you to join The Voyage® foundational training  to begin your own voyage of making a significant difference in the lives of others - and in your own.

The Programme Outline 

The Voyage® works as a metaphorical map and sea journey giving people the skills, tools and techniques to use with themselves and others on their trauma healing journey.

Trauma needs a holistic approach. Without encompassing the Mind, Body and Soul elements there is little chance of long-lasting recovery.  When working with trauma it is also essential to use a phased approach to ensure the risk of re-traumatisation is limited, and that the comprehensive and detailed material is fully absorbed, integrated and embodied. 

This is where The Voyage® stands out from other trauma training and modalites: By embodying a holistic approach along with a framework that outlines the necessary stages in which to work with.

PHASE 1: Information - Expand The Mind

(Land in the Sand) 

Even if you have a general idea of what trauma is, most training doesn’t help you understand the different theories, biological impacts, symptoms or differing healing models. The Voyage starts with a module based around  Information and The Mind because awareness is the foundation of everything. It is vital to see things through a trauma lens and truly understand it for both the practitioner and the client.

By the end of this first phase you'll be confident that you have enough information to psycho-educate clients about trauma. With the knowledge of how to self-soothe and build resources that will bring about more self-awareness, understanding, regulation and resilience. This learning will bring you far more clarity as well as help inform your clients, taking your practice to the next level in terms of grounding, psychoeducation, trauma-informed care and ultimately, safety.

PHASE 2: Integration - Befriend The Body

(Swim in the Sea) 

As a coach, counsellor or health practitioner working with trauma, you may find it challenging to know how to work with some of the presentations you see. You have two options: refer them on to someone else or potentially cause re-traumatisation. So in this module, you will learn how to bring the mind into the body, (body-mind) and develop practices to Integrate wisdom and knowledge into the somatic system.

By the end of this second module you'll know all about Integration and how to work with the body and the somatic system. With the skills to increase self-care, containment, trust, compassion and forgiveness. These resources will bring about more empowerment for you and your clients, as you move through dissociation and into embodiment.

PHASE 3: Inspiration - Touch The Soul

(Soar in the Sky) 

The third module is about addressing the journey of being a coach or counsellor working with trauma and mental health, and how it can feel lonely and emotionally challenging at times. Working without support, connection to other coaches/counsellors, or sometimes adequate supervision can feel extremely solitary.  We also need others on our side and cheerleading us forward, sharing aspirations with a group helps to stay motivated and grow in confidence.  Whereas working in solitude with a heavy caseload can lead to isolation, low mood and burn-out. That’s why this part of The Voyage® gives you access to the Inspiration and connection you will need to keep those home fires burning.

By the end of this module you will feel inspired, brimming with ideas and connected to yourself at a much deeper level. With all the additional insights, your clarity will have grown as well as your courage, allowing you to believe more in yourself and your abilities.  This in turn will enable you to expand your practice, performance and growth exponentially. Your capacity to regulate your nervous system will be greatly enhanced, your limiting beliefs challenged, allowing you to flow through your work and your life with much more freedom and ease.
