We want our learners to feel able to fully engage in their studies when undertaking their training with us.

The ability for individuals to actively participate is influenced by many factors, one of which is the physical space that can create the opportunities for teaching and learning to be encouraged and facilitated. Consequently, we believe that our counselling training rooms provide an environment conducive for learning and development to take place.

The training rooms have been purposefully set out to facilitate a reflective space in which students and tutors can engage in shared dialogue and feedback that enables personal growth and individual exploration to be conducted in what we hope will be a safe enough space for each individual who wants to learn more about themselves and their relationship styles

The main area for learning and lectures takes place in the large training room that is equipped with an overhead projector and screen. The comfortable seating is arranged in wide range horseshoe style where all learners can participate in group discussions.

Part of the training room is partitioned with access to more formal tables and chairs for meetings, small group discussions and for drawing and painting etc. to take place as an essential part of the creative nature of the learning ethos of the centre.

This smaller training room provides a facilitative space for smaller group work and in particular personal development workshops and group therapy to take place. Student’s and facilitators report a good ‘feel’ to this room that provides a safe place for an individual’s learning about themselves and others to be shared and acknowledged by the group.

Student Break Area & Library

Students have access to their own space for break times and private study. The student lounge may also access a small library for short terms loans and access to reference material. 

There is a Wi-Fi facility for learners to be able to conduct research via the Internet whilst using their own laptops, tablets and smart phones. 

There is also a fridge and microwave for the students use at break times.

Tutor Office

The trainers and office staff have their own office facility so that there can be a clear separation between tutors and students at break times etc. This is important for learners and tutors alike to have their own space during rest periods.

Room Hire

All of the training rooms are available for hire on a half day/full day basis. Longer hires are negotiable.
