Counselling and group work for depression, stress and anxiety in Sussex

12 JunRelationship Therapy and Working with Couples Training Programme

Further to our post in March announcing our forthcoming Couples Counselling course, we are really excited to be able to offer our training programme on relationship therapy and working with Couples. Over the years we have developed a great course that covers all aspects of working with couples. This does mean the course is slightly longer than many of the courses on offer; but it’s really great value for money.

The course is for qualified therapists.

Working with couples is very different to one to one work this course will leave you will feeling keen and confident to move into this challenging but incredibly rewarding work.
