'Glosna' translates to fertile place'  

2 x Self Development Workshops brought to you by Registered Psychotherapist & Glosna House Founder Marie Byrne MIAHIP Reg ICP.


The journey to self- acceptance, self-compassion and self-worth can be hampered by low self-esteem, negative thinking, distorted beliefs and a lack of positive past influences. When we are living our lives with fear, anxiety and low self-worth, we are limiting our potential and dulling our light. We are disconnected from our authentic self and this causes us pain which is displayed in our lives in many different forms.




Workshop 1 : The Letting Go Workshop – Challenging My Inner Critic & Negative Thinking!

Cost: €125 

Times: 10.30am to 4pm


How we think, determines how we feel which directly impacts on how we act and behave.

So ask yourself; “Am I still connected to these dreams and hopes?” “Am I living my life authentically, being true to my values, my passions and the person I know deep down inside I truly am?”

Working with Shame in the Therapy Room

A CPD Workshop with Carol Duffy MIAHIP Reg ICP MIACP MEAP SIAHIP SIACP

Cost: €100

Times: 9am to 5pm


Shame is a painful interpersonal emotion that develops in early attachment relationships. Children see themselves through the eyes of their attachment figure, and if they perceive disapproval, ridicule, or aversion, this affects their self esteem, sense of self, body, and emotions.


When shame is exposed, it creates a pain that is unbearable, thus concealing itself making it difficult for a client to acknowledge, and a practitioner to identify.


Chronic shame is a problematic symptom that is often endured by clients who have experienced complex trauma, creating alterations in selfhood which can generate stuckness and lack of progression in the therapeutic process. Since shame is experienced with symptoms that are comorbid with trauma, supporting a client requires careful navigation by a practitioner.


This workshop, will focus on the early roots of shame, including the impacts on the nervous system and body, and on patterns of cognitions, emotions, and beliefs. It will help practitioners recognise the role of autonomic arousal in the nervous system, exacerbating symptoms, by identify animal defense survival responses in client who have experienced trauma.


Practitioners can avoid shame in the therapy room, due to a difficultly with their own shame, so we will explore how to be with shame, of both the practitioner and client. We will focus on how an implicit and explicit relational attunement between therapist and client, can create a safe and compassionate relational container for our clients to begin the interpersonal healing of shame. This workshop will incorporate a dynamic combination of theory, collaborative interaction and experiential learning.


Target Audience:

Psychotherapists, Counsellers (including trainees and pre accredited therapists), Psychologists.

Integrated Energy Therapy (I.E.T.) Practitioner Training 1, 2 & 3 with Clare Mansfield

  • IET Level 1 costs: €150
  • IET Level 2 costs: €155
  • IET Level 3 costs: €155


  • Level 1 - Basic Level Integrated Energy Therapy® Training class:  

Description: Even though we call this class “Basic Level” the training provides you with everything you need to do a powerful Integrated Energy Therapy® session on yourself or on another person (either in person or absentee).

This class has been designed to be a wonderful entry level class for those students wanting to use energy therapy to heal their lives; an ideal class for students wanting to begin an energy therapy practice and it provides a wonderful complement to other holistic techniques such as Massage, Reiki and Therapeutic Touch.

Basic Attunement: You will receive a special Basic Level “energy attunement” that will permanently open your energy field to the power of Integrated Energy Therapy® Basic level ray.

Our Basic Level attunement expands, realigns, and restructures the 1st pair (physical) and 2nd pair (emotional) of your 12-Strand DNA. Once attuned to the Basic Level IET Ray, you will have the ability to clear cellular memory of physical and emotional blockages.

Angelic Heart-links: Integrated Energy Therapy® is known as “Healing with the Energy of Angels”. You will learn to access the energy of angels through a simple yet powerful process that we call a Heart-link. 

Clearing Cellular Memory: You will learn about the nine cellular memory areas where we can unconsciously store “issues in our tissues” that can negatively affect our life. More importantly, you will learn simple yet powerful techniques to get the “issues out of your tissues” (as well as out of the tissues of others).

Clearing of cellular memory is made quick and easy by means of nine sets of Integrated Energy Therapy® Integration Points that allow you to energize, integrate, and clear the nine cellular memory areas.

Special Empowerment Imprints: In Integrated Energy Therapy® clearing harmful energy blocks is only half the task. After energy blocks are cleared, you will learn to channel angelic energy to form an empowerment imprint that fills the cellular memory with the opposite of what you cleared. For example, you will learn to clear the energy of guilt and imprint the energy of innocence.

Class Length: 1 day (approx. 7 hours). This class is designed to be taught in one day, and typically runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The actual length and times of class vary by individual Integrated Energy Therapy® Master-Instructors.

  • Level 2 -Intermediate Level Integrated Energy Therapy® Training class:  

Prerequisites: Completion of the Integrated Energy Therapy® Basic Level class is required for attendance to this class.

Description: This class is the next step in our Integrated Energy Therapy® training system and it builds on all of the knowledge and techniques learned in our Basic Level training.

Our Intermediate Level training expands upon both the depth and the breadth of the Basic Level techniques through the Intermediate Attunement (which opens you to clear mental and karmic imprints) and through the special Integrated Energy Therapy® pullout-release technique that lets you clear imprints from the human energy field.

Intermediate Attunement: You will receive a special Intermediate Level “energy attunement” that will further open your energy field to the power of Integrated Energy Therapy® Intermediate Level ray.

Our Intermediate Level attunement expands, realigns, and restructures the 3rd pair (mental) and 4th pair (karmic) of your 12-Strand DNA. Once attuned to the Intermediate Level IET Ray, you will have the ability to pull physical, emotional, mental, and karmic energy imprints out of the human energy field.

Clearing The Human Energy Field: You will learn the special Integrated Energy Therapy® pullout-release technique that will turn your hands into “energy magnets” that will allow you to easily attract and clear harmful energy imprints from the human energy field. This will allow you to clear even more difficult energy blockages.

As part of this training, you will also be taught to feel and interpret energy blockages and identify the level (physical, emotional, mental, or karmic) that the energy blockages occur. You will also learn the special “pink bubble technique” that will further accelerate the clearing process.

Class Length: 1 day (approx. 7 hours). This class is designed to be taught in one day, and typically runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The actual length and times of class vary by individual Integrated Energy Therapy® Master-Instructors.

  • Level 3 - Advanced Level Integrated Energy Therapy® Training class:  

Prerequisites: Completion of the Integrated Energy Therapy® Intermediate Level class is required for attendance at this class.

Description: This class builds on all of the knowledge and techniques learned in our Basic and Intermediate Level trainings. While our Basic and Intermediate Level classes are focused on clearing cellular memory and the human energy field, our Advanced Level training is focused on helping you live your soul’s mission and bringing your dreams alive.

Advanced Attunement: You will receive a special Advanced Level “energy attunement” that will further open your energy field to the power of Integrated Energy Therapy® Advanced Level ray.

Our Advanced Level attunement expands, realigns, and restructures the 4th pair (soul profile) and 5th pair (soul cluster) of your 12-Strand DNA.

Once attuned to the Advanced Level IET Ray, you will have the ability to discover your soul’s mission and attract members of your soul’s cluster to help you live your soul’s mission and bring your dreams alive.

Your Soul’s Mission: Every soul incarnates with a special mission that is not only perfect for that soul but is an integral part of the higher divine plan.

The Advanced Level energy attunement will open you to a deeper connection with your 8th chakra (called the soul star) where the complete plan for your soul’s mission is stored.

You will learn how to tap into the soul star energy and better understand your soul’s mission through the creation of a vision board.

You will also learn about the four E’s of living your soul’s mission and how energy blockages can prevent you from living your mission.

Muscle Tension – Relaxation Techniques: The deep energy blockages that can prevent you from living your soul’s mission can easily be released through the special Advanced Level Integrated Energy Therapy® muscle tension – relaxation techniques. These techniques applied to the arms and legs will accelerate you in the living of your soul’s mission.

Soul Star Clearing: This Advanced Level technique lets you work directly with the 8th chakra to activate the energy of the soul’s mission and focus angelic energy to bring your dreams alive.

Heart-beams – Healing the Earth: As an Advanced Level practitioner, you will be able to give back to the Earth by establishing columns of Integrated Energy Therapy® energy into the Earth called Heart-beams. Once established, these columns provide a permanent anchor of angelic healing energy into the Earth. These can be used to heal areas of the Earth that have suffered from human or natural devastation. Not only will Heart-beams offer healing to the Earth, but they will also offer healing to anyone who passes through them.

As an Advanced Level Integrated Energy Therapy® practitioner, you can place Heart-beams in your home and office. You can also place them at the entrances to schools, hospitals, train stations, airports, and anywhere lots of people will pass through.

with Andrei Tcaciuc MAPPI, Reg ICP

Every single person experiences not one, but a long series of losses during their lifetime. People’s reaction in response to their grief and loss, often takes the form of challenging and risk-taking behaviour. Some of these behaviours can include withdrawal or exaggerated autonomy, self harm, substance abuse, etc. 


Professionals, family members and friends find themselves in a precarious position, being unsure of how to formulate an appropriate response, in order to equip their loved ones, their colleagues or their clients with coping skills that would help them to deal with their grief and multiple losses. The purpose of this workshop is to address these issues.

It offers the participants practical tools and tips for helping hurt individuals to integrate single or multiple loss experiences into their life story, in a way that is meaningful and hopeful rather than overwhelming and self-destructive, to strengthen their inner resilience and meet their physical, emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual needs, and to provide a basis for building bridges. It helps the participants to develop an understanding of the importance of self-care and support in environments where people are consistently faced with grief and loss.

Andrei has a particular interest in helping people exposed to loss and trauma, to become aware of the underlying sources of their difficulties, intellectually and emotionally, and to develop coping skills that would allow them to deal with the realities of their life situation.

This understanding has the aim of helping them to bring about major change in their whole perspective on life.
