Training Approach:

I believe that ongoing training for professional workers is essential in ensuring that our understanding and skills are current and relevant for our clients.

Training sessions are delivered in a flexible and informal setting involving a combination of presentations from the trainer, interactive discussions, activities, reflection and evaluation.

All training programs are tailored to the needs of the specific organisation or group and are designed to suit the current level of understanding and practice experience of the participants.
