About Us

Heartful Therapy Training is a collaboration between Cabby Laffy and Shana Laffy with the aim of providing high quality and experiential training in relationship and couple therapy and using the arts as a therapeutic tool. Heartful Therapy Training offers a variety of courses, some 1-day CPD events, and a certificate course. The teaching is influenced by many schools of thought and offers an integrative view based on up to date research. As a mirror of our approach to client work (one size does not fit all), our training methods invite students to take the skills on offer and shape them to fit your own style of working. As well as being rooted in theory, all of our training days encourage participants to connect with their intuition and felt sense, reminding us of the complexities and challenges of connection in the modern world.

She has also worked as a psychotherapist with individuals and couples, and a supervisor for individual and couple work, for over twenty-five years. She is a UKCP registered and NCP accredited psychotherapist, a COSRT accredited psychosexual therapist and supervisor, an educator and group facilitator, and a member of PCSR and PCU. Cabby’s book LoveSex: An Integrative Model for Sexual Education (Karnac 2013) presents a model for psychosexual health. Cabby is available for one to one and couple therapy, training, and supervision.
