INTER-PSYCHE TRAINING INSTITUTE
Our over-arching ethos is humanistic and relational. We believe that counselling can go beyond the removal of symptoms and the solving of surface problems and that the counselling relationship is, in itself, a powerful therapeutic agent.
All Inter-Psyche Training Institute tutors have considerable experience of teaching and group work. Training methods are varied with practical hands on experience alternating with more formal lectures and workshops. Students are encouraged to participate actively in all aspects of the course including input into syllabus development. The student group itself is a vital tool in the learning process. Students provide support, feedback and challenge for each other and strong links are often created.
