Experience A Difference

People learn best about counselling through experience and in relationship with others. Thats what makes our training courses different from other colleges. Experiential learning is direct, “first-hand” experience. This is especially powerful if it is shared with others in a group working in a circle under skilled facilitation. Another way of learning is through description – such as lectures and rows of seats looking at peoples backs. We do very little of that! Our training takes place in the context of a busy counselling centre which keeps it linked with the real world. We also believe its better to teach somebody to learn for themselves than to have them rely on your expertise. Experiential learning impacts people, and unlike descriptive learning, they don’t forget it!
