Counselling:

“We are in a much better place now as a couple than we have been for a very long time. We needed some kind of intervention to get us back on track. We are both very happy that we decided to look for some help.”

Paula & Mike, London

 

“You saved our relationship, and as a consequence our family, by teaching us tools that helped solve problems and conflicts we were struggling with for years.

We would not have been able to do this on our own – we did try.

Our relationship and life has improved tremendously as a result, we are extremely grateful.”

Teresa & Jeff, New York

 

“We have enjoyed the sessions; particularly the first session of reflective listening, where I think we managed to be heard by each other in a way that perhaps we had not heard each other before. This gave us a platform to appreciate exactly what impact our actions were having on each other and better understand the pressure points and the triggers behind the feelings that each of us feel when behaving the way we do.  I also think it was good just to get an element of perspective on our relationship from the experts. It is all too easy to get caught up in some ‘drama’ and become entrenched believing that our situation is unique and that no one will understand the dynamics of our relationship. In some ways it is encouraging to realise that the discussions we have and the emotions we feel are nothing new and that it is simply a hurdle for us both to negotiate together and not necessary a crisis where we each believe we are 100% correct and the other is wrong.”

Ranjit & David, London

 

“We found our sessions helpful and doing the work has certainly moved us on; particularly in enabling us to accept some important and different things about each other, and being ready to look at things together in a more useful and healing way. It was great that you were a couple in relationship too, and that you were different, which supported our differences.”

Mary & Paul, Cambridge

 

Workshops:

Gloria, Tonbridge

 

Professional Training:

“Debbie and Simon are great trainers. The four dates were informative, insightful and fun. I loved the range of teaching methods and have already recommended the course to two colleagues. Fantastic handouts also. Lovely and safe group.”

Phil Puttock, counsellor, Brighton

 

“Excellent attention to detail. The course draws attention to the most important considerations and provides a comprehensive toolkit for anyone starting out as a couples counsellor.” 

Phil Martin, therapist, Bournemouth

 

“I found most helpful the depth of experience of both leaders….the supervision of role-plays was done well and helpful. Everyone was given permission to join in or sit it out or passively participate. I found that sensitive”

B, therapist

 

“An extremely clear and informative course. Very well organised. Delivered with clarity and warmth. Very useful.”

Kate Renner, Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living, Herts

 

“What was good about the training was the generosity of both Simon and Debbie in what they gave to us – the information was clear. The handouts and the thought and effort put into the two days was very much appreciated.”

Diana, Cornerstone

 

“The training exceeded my expectations. The teaching was very open and it felt like a safe place to take on new ideas.”
