     • Workshop design (see below for more information)

     • Group Dynamics: end-to-end support (online or face-to-face) including start-up, group development stages, types of groups,  and                     facilitating skills

One area I specialize in is assisting therapeutic counsellors delivering their psycho-educational workshops (whether for personal or professional development). 


Having custom-designed well over 1000 workshops to 30,000 personal or professional clients or teams, I've developed a comprehensive system for counsellors to design, deliver and debrief workshops. I've delivered Train-the Trainer workshops to Fortune 500 companies and Facilitation Workshops to individuals, teams and grassroot groups with high accolades.

Would you like to design (or redesign) a day-long workshop and enhance your facilitating skills? Join a group of fellow therapeutic counsellors to explore strategies for powerful workshop design. Bring your ideas for designing a workshop. You will leave this workshop with new insights about course design and a draft course plan.



During this workshop you will:

1.Become familiar with learning-centered course design principles and strategies;

2.Apply these principles to the (re)design of one of their courses;

3.Exchange feedback with peers to improve course design and facilitating approaches.
