Frequently Asked Questions
What's different about your training workshops?
Facilitate creation, not just consumption
Learning is not about just listening to someone talk at you, giving you their views and their ways. You are not an empty vessel to be filled or a box to be ticked. You are a meaning-making machine and learning is all about the meaning you create in the context that you will apply it. Our workshops give you plenty of opportunities to create the meaning that is appropriate for you in your world.
Rich and multi-sensory
How many training events have you been to where you sit for long periods, looking at a screen and listening to a trainer’s voice or watching them draw models on a flipchart? We have five senses and on our workshops, you will use them all in different ways.
Every person who attends our workshops is regarded as unique and our workshops reflect this. They are very practical and you will actively learn in visual ways, auditory ways, kinaesthetic ways, logical ways, working with others, working on your own, through reflection and through movement.
Keep it Real
We have lots of different people who attend our workshops from different backgrounds and in different roles. We are always conscious that what our learners want are practical tools that they can apply in real situations. We always give people opportunities to position their learning firmly in the context of the situation in which the will use it. Every learner gets the opportunity to develop their own individual learning action plan on our workshops.
State is everything
We believe that people learn when they are in a resourceful learning state. Our workshops are designed to change learner state as often as is appropriate. State is a combination of ‘focus and physiology’. You will not be sitting around listening to us talking for long periods whilst you are passive. We always create an active and engaging learning environment in which you can enjoy learning new things.

I don’t live in the UK or within travelling distance of you; can we still work together?
Absolutely. The world is much smaller place thanks to the effective technologies that exist. We can talk over the phone, using Skype or FaceTime. I use a Facebook group for you to ask questions and for us both to post actions, tasks and successes. Also, you just never know, I may be in your part of the world one day and I’ll call you arrange to pop round to meet in person!

How do I pay you?
I ask for full payment up front before we begin, by cash, PayPal or by debit or credit card. However, you can pay by monthly instalments (although this may cost a little more than the full up-front price).
What if I need to cancel a session?
Less than 24 hours in advance of agreed time: This may result in the loss of that session from your programme

If you cancel between 14 and 7 days prior to the start time of the event, a refund of 50% of the price you paid will be given
