We provide training covering all aspects of professional behaviours, from client interactions to relationships with colleagues, including work on personal and professional values, listening, empathy, self-disclosure, boundaries, probity and ethics.

Our training is relevant for anyone working in human services, anywhere that trust is a necessary component of service and where safety is important. Relevant services include: Health and Medical Care; Psychological Therapies; Clergy & Religious; Social Services; Coaching; Education; Complementary & Integrated Health; Business and Corporate; Criminal Justice.

Our training is preventative, providing people with the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure safe practice, and restorative, providing a space for people to make effective changes in their working practice following a problem relating to professional conduct.

Courses can be purchased as standalone sessions, or as part of broader professional development programmes, for individuals and for organisations.

Types Of Training

One-day coursesThree-Day CoursesBespoke Courses
We run one-day open sessions on Boundaries, Values and Listening.  Our flagship course is Introduction to Professional Boundaries. This course is at the heart of increasing awareness about boundaries and how to avoid breaching them, and has been commissioned by churches, the NHS, voluntary sector groups and private enterprises.
Our three-day courses are small-group based programmes which help people in professional roles improve their accountability, awareness and responsibility when an issue has been identified or alleged. The issue could be identified from the individuals own insights, from a complaint, regulator, disciplinary, appraisal, feedback, and can be used to assist with navigating regulatory processes.
We develop training tailored for the needs of the people attending. We have developed and run training sessions for NHS England, Health Education England, Borough Councils, Churches, Hospices, NHS Trusts, Housing Associations and Voluntary Sector groups (see here for a list of people we have worked with). Occasionally we also develop personalised training programmes for individuals who cannot attend the live courses or who require more specialised assistance.
