Our trainings are based on intensive coaching in interactional skills.

We use large and small group teaching. We pay particular attention to conversational microskills, including attentiveness to language and body language, and carefully focussed questioning.

Our next training.

FORTHCOMING COURSE. We are running a 3-day course in March-May 2020 at University College Hospital London, for the Physiotherapy Pain Association. Places are available for other health and social care professionals, and the course will address narrative skills for all consultations, not only related to pain. Click here for further details.

An independent evaluation of our work by a team from Cardiff University highlighted the theoretical and practical coherence of our approach in supervision and training, and the opportunities it provides for significant changes in people’s understanding and practice.
