She is a distinguished Pikler Sensory Awareness trainer, integrating study of Eastern culture, experience with Gestalt Therapy and a long association with the Pikler Institute, including founding the European Pikler Association.

The weekend, which is an essential aspect of the Pikler European Association training model, is highly beneficial for anyone caring for very young children. Peggy helps us become more aware of our felt sensations, breathing, balance, and orientation to gravity and to others (balance with people). With her guidance, we begin to more fully experience our physical self and its deep, self-regulating and regenerative processes that are our birth right. We then begin to see more clearly and to understand these phenomena as we observe young children’s freely-initiated play and movement development and so recognise the importance of not interfering.
