We encourage participants to take advantage of free one-to-one clinical consultations available throughout the Retreat. Of course, it is unavoidable that some of these appointments will clash with the sessions. However, all the presenters are made aware that people may be coming and going according to these additional bookings.
NOTE: Due to limited appointment times, not everyone will be able to be accommodated, this will work on a first-in-best-dressed basis. A list of successful ‘Booked Consultations’ and those on the ‘waiting list’ will be provided at the Retreat.
