Upcoming training courses and availability with NowCounselling

Thinking about some personal development and self care for you or your team or organisation? Or some learning and development and CPD?

We currently have a variety of courses available, not only for counselors or people that use counselling skills in their role (including healthcare staff, teachers and managers) but for absolutely any team, organisation or person. NowCounselling courses provide knowledge and understanding and relevent skills to apply to your life and/or work or studies, or any challenge that you have ahead. 


  • 1 day introduction to Choice Theory, Reality Therapy and Lead Management for practitioners or for self care. 
  • 3 day Basic Intensive workshop in Choice Theory, Reality Therapy and Lead Management (this is 3 days CPD and also the first of 5 steps towards qualification as a Reality Therapy practitioner if people choose to take it forwards)
  • 1 day course on understanding the impact of trauma and working with clients in a trauma informed manner 
  • 1 day introduction to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Motivational Interviewing (also available as separate half days)
  • 1 day introduction to group work skills and training facilitation (similar to the courses called something like 'train the trainer'). 
  • 1 or half day course on alcohol awareness and working with clients who identify as having a problem with alcohol
  • 1 or half day course on drug awareness and working with clients who identify as having a problem with drug(s)
  • 1 day course - Working with others effectively as part of a team  
  • 1 day course - Developing yourself as a leader (with a small or capital L)

I can also develop a bespoke course to suit the needs of your team, group or you, including motivational talks and team development days.

You tell me what you need and I will write it and deliver it!


All courses are designed, written and developed by me:
