Course Testimonials

What people say about See for Miles training courses.

“The course provided a chance to upgrade my one to one skills to working with couples in an open, accepting environment, and an opportunity to practice in a stimulating and supportive way”

“Thank you to Geoff and Helen [the Trainers] for this fabulous insight into and learning about Couples Counselling. Amazing learning throughout the week. I feel confident and am looking forward to working with couples.”

“I found it stimulating. Great sense of involvement. Having a live enactment was a great benefit”

“An excellent experience. Good presentation combined with experiential learning and essential skills. Would highly recommend this course”

“The See For Miles Couples Counselling Diploma training fully met my perceived need for bespoke training in this specialist area of therapy. I experienced the facilitators as being fully grounded in the subject material and highly ethical in their approach. Their decision to do something new and exciting instead of following traditional role play protocols, where students take on the role of ‘clients’, is both innovative and highly effective. Completion of the Couple’s Counselling Diploma, supported by my existing experience, facilitated seamless entry to the Couple’s Counselling Network. The course has enhanced both my ability to work with couples and my general practice skills. I have no hesitation in recommending this training programme.”  G Britton

I think the course was informative and transformational. A unique and invaluable experience which was both enlightening and moving. Thank you. PB
