Barbara Woodis-Ihloff started CCI co-counselling in 1976 and since then has attended every CCI-USA and 3 European ones. ‘For the first 5 years I took classes with Dency and then with Dodie Pratt. After 2 years of apprenticing I began teaching. I usually co-teach and/or take on an apprentice. In 2011, I participated in designing and implementing an unique Teacher Training course. I am currently serving as one of the continuity persons for CCI-USA. I have used my co-counselling skills to free myself from inhibiting patterns, and to become all that I was meant to be. My love for this community and for co-counselling feeds my soul. In addition, I now have cherished friends all over the world.  What a blessing!’ @

Cathy Sargent: 'I've been a co-counsellor since the age of 11 when my mother, Dency Sargent (one of CCI's cofounders), started teaching. 'I love CCI and I love to teach co-counselling. It is a powerful, simple process in which the most amazing alchemy takes place. I love contributing to the intentional, magical transformation of students in class as well as other co-counsellors, myself, and the CCI community at large. I love the way I come to love other co-counsellors as we work and learn together. I love the challenges and rewards of making decisions by consensus, as the CCI USA community does. I love the fact that I can travel across the world and use co-counselling with someone I've never even met before to process any fear or upset. Then, I love the depth with which I can enjoy being across the world. I invite anyone who is interested in co-counselling, and who can take a class in my area, to contact me for more details about how, and what I teach'. @
