Feedback REGARDING training

 The workshop hosted by As You Are was undoubtedly the most powerful counselling training course, I've ever attended. This course took the participants to the edges of our understanding of the human condition embracing psychology and neuroscience within the context of the deep mysteries of the human mind and social behaviours - a real leading edge course for counselling practitioners.

 This was an outstanding training day. I will take much of what I have learnt into my work with clients. 

The training has started to have a positive impact on my confidence, increased knowledge and awareness right from the start of the course and then throughout.  Some of the work around sexuality and sex was particularly valuable.

The course covered such a wide variety of issues and each weekend in itself was a valuable experience in its own right.  It was almost a course of 6 weekend workshops that held together on the theme of working with couples, yet topics that were also hugely helpful for work with individuals also.  From a personal perspective I particularly enjoyed the experiential weekend.  Much as I find triad work stressful it provided a really useful way of exploring what it is like to work with couples.
