Professional Training and Other Courses

0 Comment

Re-Vision provides professional training and offers short courses for both personal and professional development, introductory events, and a low-cost counselling service.  The counselling training starts every autumn and applications are welcome throughout the spring and summer.

After two years of working mostly online due to the pandemic (with some recent training events being held at external venues), our training is now returning to in-person in our building, with some occasional on-line elements.   We have improved ventilation and installed HEPA filters in our main training rooms which will not only help mitigate against coronavirus but also against other airborne disease.

Courses are first and foremost experiential, with an emphasis on self-discovery. Too early an emphasis on skills in therapeutic training can encourage the student to use techniques as a defence against the anxiety of being in the inevitable uncertainty of the counselling situation. In Re-Vision’s training, both theoretical perspectives and the development of counselling skills are initially presented in an implicit experiential way and only later made explicit. This building on inner experience is part of the ‘inside-out’ learning method in which students integrate skills into their own reality rather than using them as technical means to an end.

If you train with us we ask you to take our transitions course before you apply.  Not only will the course give you a real taste of our experiential training method and help you confirm if Re-Vision is the right place for you, but it also runs as a stand-alone self development course which is hugely appreciated whether or not you go on to our full professional training.

Re-Vision is a registered charity established in 1988 as a counselling and psychotherapy training centre. It has an experienced training group who share much of the responsibility for Re-Vision’s ongoing development.
