Here's what our students have been saying about Kindred.
"I love your videos because they're clear, easy to follow and understand, and they're giving me easy access to more CPD."
"As a rural osteopath of 28 years experience, it is always a challenge to find interesting osteopathic courses especially from the comfort of my Whitsundays! So congratulations on your lovely work and thank you"
"Jonathan is masterful at communicating the relevant and most topical information you need for clinical application"
"Jonathan's natural talent and passion for teaching is infectious and can be seen throughout this course and the use of videos allows you to move through the content at your own pace. They are fluid, dynamic and filled with practical applications. It is really suited to just a quick check in between patients or a more in-depth few hours of learning - loads of inspiration and learning tools. Jonathan caters for a large array of learning styles and he also comes back to basics in a really pragmatic way. These courses have really given me the courage and the confidence to move beyond my own fears and begin to develop my own skill set in this field. These courses have a beautiful way of allowing you to explore the concepts presented, but in a way that is very relevant to your own particular way of treating and practicing. Thanks Jonathan for shining a light on my own Osteopathic journey with the guidance of your years of experience, exploration and insight."
"I found this course extremely helpful. It was practical, well paced and you were very clear explaining the techniques"
"I purchased your pelvic course and really enjoyed it. I’ve implemented some of the techniques with my clients and found the knowledge you provided on the video have really helped bring my treatments up a level, so thank you!"
"There's so few opportunities to learn this kind of work, so to actually have videos of patients being treated in clinic as a way of learning is awesome" Tweed Heads, Australia
"I think this course is wonderful. I've watched a lot of it already, and look forward to watching all of the videos and revisiting the ones I've already watched."
"I love being able to go over the information when needed, even as a reminder just before a treatment. Also such a great way to treat!"
"great course. thank - you!"
"I just wanted to say that I loved your course! I always find your courses inspiring with so many good things to try when I get into clinic"
"Sure have been enjoying the program, its great to keep filling the tool box, particularly in the first year out from uni!"
"I am very grateful to Jonathan for sharing his wisdom and experience in such clear, organised, easy to understand way.''
This is a subject that it's often hard to find courses on, so I have included some specific comments about the baby courses.
Love, love, love this course! What I love is that I get to see babies treated in real time in a clinical environment. I get to see how Jonathan works with babies and communicates with their parents. He then breaks the session down, piece by piece, to point out what he is doing and feeling. He is masterful at communicating the relevant and most topical information you need for clinical application. I'm a Craniosacral therapist and Birth Doula. I've taken other peds courses through Upledger and Allison Hazelbaker (both fabulous). This course filled in missing pieces for me and most importantly linked the material to clinical applications. There is plenty of new material here that I can integrate into my CST sessions.
"This course is brilliant. It is the most accessible, the most complete and the most usable course that I have ever done. It was incredibly rewarding to undertake because it not only taught me to examine and treat babies successfully but facilitated an entire upgrade in the interaction of my thought processes, my treatment approach, and my delivery for patients of any age. Best of all it improved the experience I have of myself as a practitioner because it enabled me to transform the vast clinical knowledge into actual organic practice. And it did this with ease! In a world where clinical integrity and competence is of utmost importance, so much of our education and its inevitable linear approach strips our patients and ourselves of the ‘holistic’ philosophy and relevant healing experiences that I believe we are all essentially looking for. Jonathan has managed to create a learning tool whereby this gap has been bridged. The course is an incredible gift. There is nothing you could want out of professional development that is not here".
"I just wanted to say thank you for your work, for this resource that you are creating. I treated an infant today for the first time, and I could not have done it without you and everything you have shared. Thank you for saying that my hands would know and the rest would catch up. It was a beautiful, still moment, and I am very grateful for the confidence and the knowledge you imparted."
''This is an amazing course! It is such a comprehensive approach to pediatric history taking, assessment, treatment and management. I love the mind maps, the real life examples from real patients and the downloadable templates. This course has given me the framework to feel more confident and equipped to treat babies and children. I am very grateful to Jonathan for sharing his wisdom and experience in such clear, organised, easy to understand way.''
What I value most about the Treating Babies program is the guidance and structure it gave me to just get started! I have been treating adults for a number of years, but I knew handling babies was a bit different and I knew I needed more training.
Before I discovered this program, I had been reading as much as I could, learning little tidbits from experienced practitioners whenever the opportunity arose, practicing with my infant grandchildren, but there were still a lot of gaps in my knowledge. I didn't have confidence that I was really ready to help babies effectively in my practice.
This program changed that immediately. Every lesson was so practical and immediately useful. I was taught a comprehensive set of skills and a way to structure my sessions to be sure I wasn't leaving out anything important.
I also love that I can go back and review the lessons anytime I need to refresh. I have already begun seeing babies regularly in my practice. I now feel confident that I have a solid foundation that I can continue to build upon as I gain more experience.
“I have to thank you so much for developing this course - I was hitting a point of frustration in my practice where things just felt stagnant and same same, this has changed everything. I already treated babies but this just takes it the next level. Its great to watch it, practice it, then watch it again, get the "aha" moment then practice again. Already can feel so much more! Thanks"
This course is great. It's perfectly done in bite size pieces so you can spend as little or as much time as you want on it. Very relevant and enjoyable. Thanks.
"I am thoroughly enjoying this course. I have often felt that treating babies would be daunting, but I have been given a new confidence as this course has taught me achievable steps to treat babies in a safe but effective way. The mind maps have been a great tool to refer to when going through the motions. Also being able to learn these skills from home or in clinic has been great, with a young family travelling to courses just isn't an option for me, both time wise but also the cost of travel and being away from clinic"
"Thanks for the great course you put on and sharing your wisdom. I have to say it really tied a lot of things together for me, and has already made a massive difference on my treatments of babies and children (and adults too). One key way has been in terms of how I interact with the babies/kids, being mindful of their responses, and keeping them settled by picking them up, shifting them around, or giving them a toy and even just talking to them and communicating with them what we are going to do, I really do think they get the intent behind the words and this settles them a bit more."
"Jonathan's course was very practical. and he has an easygoing and informative way of teaching so I came away with very practical tools and the confidence to start treating babies. I look forward to the next course!"
"I hope you are well. I'm treating as many kids as I can get my hands on at the moment! Thanks again for a wonderful course."
"loving your course on the treatment of babies"
"The How to treat babies series was fantastic. It was so reassuring to see someone treating in the same style that I've intuitively developed but also to give some great tips and new perspective on things. Your delivery and dialogue are so encouraging and thoughtful."
"Just completed your online paeds course which was amazing. Thank-you so much -Can't wait for the next course!"
"I wanted to say thank you for collaborating such a wonderful course on infants. As a osteopath with a passion for newborns I absolutely loved the course and found it a great tool"
"thank you so much for the" treating babies" online course (the big one) . its absolutely perfect!!!"
"Thanks so much Jonathan. Your course has been great for building my confidence in treating babies. I had an 8 month old in a couple of days ago and it went really well. I knew when to change things up and when he had had enough. We made some great changes to his movement and mum was happy. In the past, I had always been a bit nervous and unsure about what I was doing, so your course has helped me a lot. Thanks so much."
