Online Training Days

Due to COVID-19 our training is currently offered online

Enriching Online Training

Due to COVID-19, we are offering our online training at a reduced rate on a pay what you can afford basis. Starting at £15 – £30 per training day.

In 2019 we launched our Big Ripples Project and we held 52 face to face training days across the UK.

These experiential days were hosted by our team of regional skills shares ambassadors and they were a huge success.

During these skills shares, our members shared that they wanted a more immersive experience focusing on specific creative counselling interventions over 4-5 hours.

Since then we have worked hard to develop ten training modules guided by our unique creative counselling framework, our members feedback, plus research and evidence.

We now offer these online via Zoom and will continue to do so until we feel safe enough to return to face to face training.

The ten training days that we offer are:

  • Module 1: An Introduction to the Creative Interventions Training Framework (CREATIVE) & Exploring Creative Grounding Tools – Laying the Foundations
  • Module 2: Exploring Sand & Symbols in Counselling
  • Module 3: Exploring Art & Colour in Counselling Work
  • Module 4: Exploring Photos & Images in Counselling Work
  • Module 5: Exploring Working with Cards
  • Module 6: Creative Endings & Closing Ceremonies in Creative Interventions Counselling Work
  • Module 7: Working with Natural Materials & Clay
  • Module 8: Working with Stories, Characters & Fairytales
  • Module 9 : Exploring Working with Nesting Dolls

Our training modules are stand alone days and you can dip in and out of which ever module you are drawn to attend.

Each module draws from an Integrative and Holistic approach where we explore the whole experience including Mind, Body & Feelings!

We are a dedicated training team who are passionate about Creative Counselling Interventions and believe in the power of creativity to enrich mainstream counselling models.

All of our online training days offer a CPD certificate and a downloadable training guidebook.

We offer additional reading and research suggestions within each training so you can continue to grow your practice.

The training is very hands on with members watching live demonstrations, exploring the topic and also taking part in break out room groups to network and practice interventions together.

There is no formal assessment and we offer a nurturing and non-judgmental space with plenty of comfort breaks throughout the sessions.

All of our available training can be found by visiting our bookings page below.

We invite you to sign up for our email notifications so you can always be the first to know when a new training is available to join.

"What a wonderful experience to meet like-minded positive individuals who have a wealth of experience. What I shared and took away was invaluable from the opportunity to network with others within the field of counselling and therapies with their individual specialties to the selection and opportunity to buy specific creative products.
