A full and interesting course which will help counsellors to get the confidence to start thinking about working with couples. Fun, informative and supportive with expert trainers who are willing to impart their knowledge in a grounded and engaging way – Claire Bennett

As a participant who came to this training unsure but curious about whether I wanted to work with couples these two days taught me a great deal and has now helped me to make an informed choice. It was presented in an open accessible style and the sign of good training is that it was applicable to both new and experienced therapists. Anon

“Mary fearlessly brings to life the practicalities of working with couples. The workshop is full of fascinating content presented in a structured and accessible way. I’d recommend this course to anyone considering working with couples and those that already are but feel they need further training”. NT
