group1I am an experienced trainer and workshop leader and have offered and run workshops in this country and overseas for many years. I have worked in psychotherapy and counselling training schools, with corporate staff, local government departments, the NHS and with private groups seeking general professional development.

My workshops are generally very well received, flexible and responsive to the needs of each group. They contain unique and uncommon elements in addition to standard practice. The feedback I have received is that they are enjoyable and engaging, of very high quality and excellent value for money. Recent feedback has included the following comments:

'the tutor (John) has teaching expertise and is also clearly an excellent psychotherapist.'

'he has in depth knowledge of the material, made excellent contact with each member of the group and was both sensitve and challenging'

'excellent delivery and style'

'this is the best workshop I have been on. My only wish is that it would be longer. I am glad and thankful to have been there'

Following my experience as a trainer of both psychotherapists and counsellors, I am able to deliver seminars and tutorials, supervison and training in all subject specific areas of professional therapy training. I have been engaged in the past as a staff trainer on established courses and as a visiting tutor to others.

I am able to design and deliver specific workshops for your group or to deliver ones which I have done elsewhere in the past. If your training institute or group thinks you may find one of my workshops useful, please contact me to discuss arrangements and costs. I have included below some links to example workshop abstracts for your information. All the workshops mentioned have been sucessfully delivered in the past and would be of interest for general or subject specific professional development.
