An exciting year of workshops, teaching and retreats was planned for 2017. We have already run a workshop for health professionals on Emotional Eating, and a fabulous Goolwa retreat. In June Dr Cate presented a series of workshops on Health and Wellbeing at the ‘Business for Doctors’ conference in Melbourne, and facilitated a workshop on Emotional Eating for Healthy Inspirations (Prospect). Dr Cate has facilitated 6 workshops around rural South Australia on anxiety.
