Information on Training

4 day training: 18th/19th May and 15th/16th June 2024

Information and booking: or 

By the end of this training you will be confident to start working with couples in your practice. This training will guide you through the theories of working with couples and the practicalities of working in relationship therapy. It will support you in starting with couples with techniques to guide you. And following from this will provide a strong experiential focus from watching couples therapy and role playing couples therapy to help foster the curiosity and creativity needed for working with couples who are experiencing deep and long term issues. My approach is integrative drawing on the developmental model, Gestalt relational approaches (including the Resnicks), family therapy techniques, Esther Perel, Terry Real and more. 


What it will involve will be full two weekends of training (or four Saturdays online), a deep dive in working with couples. After than I will be providing ongoing monthly training and support to guide you through your early stages of couples work. I will be also providing ongoing group and individual supervision. 
The group will be small (15 max) so the training will be very intense and personalised. 


I am in the process of developing a community of passionate couples therapists to ensure that clients are getting relational, knowledgeable and professional therapists to guide them towards more positive relationships. 

This training is suitable for therapists who feel that they want to work with couples but are unsure where to start. It is for you if you want to have a comprehensive training and a mentoring space which will support you through your first months of couples work. You will need to be conscientious, passionate and willing to do a lot of reading and watching of training videos. Couples work is both deeply challenging and deeply rewarding. You will need to be a qualified psychotherapist or psychologist to attend this training.
