    Can I participate in the training and obtain a certificate?

    I am Danish, living in Spain – and I have the last 7 years helped victims of domestic violence to break free, heal and build their lives up again.

    I am teaching both virtual and physical classes and have 3, 9, and 12-month courses in self-education with support groups.

    I have a 2-year Danish education in working with individuals and groups in development processes and a bunch of courses in related areas.

    I am a survivor myself (mother, grandmother, and 2 ex-husbands) but have been free and thriving for 20 years.

    I have held speeches and courses, private sessions, made podcasts and interviews, and been on national television and radio about domestic victims of violent partners and families.
