Past Graduates

“If you want to deepen your understanding of ED, grow significantly in personal development, learn how to help others move through the recovery process to full recovery and study with an individually tailored course to fit in with your particular lifestyle – then this is the course for you. The Marino Therapy Centre has developed the unique Psycho-Linguistic Motivational model, which enables FULL recovery and freedom from ED. It has been a privilege for me first to fully recover through the Centre and then to train in using this unique model. On completion of the training I am now equipped to work as an ED practitioner and it is a continual privilege to put this learning into practice in supporting others on their recovery journey.”

“I have provided help to those affected by Eating Distress for almost 9 years having personal first hand experience of the impact of the illness some 16 years ago. After observing treatment approaches elsewhere including England, the reputation of the centre both made me curious as to what the centre did differently to achieve ‘full recovery and freedom’ and I decided that training in their unique psycho linguistic style could be worthwhile. Having completed the Diploma course last year I consider it was a good investment of my energy, time and finance as I feel it has provided the skills to give those suffering with the condition the ‘best chance’ for high level recovery.”

The training with MTC enabled me to further put into action what I learned along my journey to freedom. When undertaking the course I was finalising my recovery. I fully believe studying the course from another perspective, one of trying to help others to freedom, enabled me to cement my journey.  It built on my trust in recovery as a whole and reminded me how the language of freedom really does work.

It takes daily practice to work on ourselves and the training helped me to trust what works for me, in particular to keep things simple and understandings how to live as a sensitive person in what can be an overwhelming world at times!!

With over 20 years experience in specialising in recovery from Eating Distress I knew I would be availing of not just theory but practical tips on how to help support my future clients as well as myself when practicing. I found the individual tailoring hugely beneficial and the one to one a wonderful opportunity to ask whatever questions I may have. This diploma has not only given me knowledge, but understanding and confidence to work in the area of Eating Distress.
