Training and Education

We have provided various training courses and educational programmes over the past 5 and half years. Some of these are currently being revised to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. We currently also have some new courses and programmes being developed - so exciting times ahead!


We can provide training, courses and education to both the public, professionals and to other organisations privately. Some courses are specialised (such as those tailored to psychotherapy clinicians, health workers, teachers and other health and education professionals). Other courses and educational programmes are offered to anyone who wishes to attend and are 'public'. We can also offer training exclusively to your own organsation.


Many of our training courses offer professional CPD, with certificates of attendance being provided. Our courses have been specially developed and researched by mental health professionals and researchers and evidence-based as far as possible.


We also hold licenses for various other courses and educational programmes, which will appeal to individuals (personal), professionals and other organisations alike.


Our courses will be available again in 2016, as some are under revision and some are being developed from scratch. Some of the training, courses and educational programmes we can offer include:
