Welcome to Whitebeam Counsellor Training...
Previously known as NLangley Training, my CPD service was established in 2017 following a long spell of employment within the further education sector. Having established myself as an entirely self-employed Counsellor and Trainer, I decided to develop CPD opportunities for the local therapeutic community. Having developed a walking practice the previous year (2016), I thought it might be interesting to gather my thoughts, experiences and learning in order to support other Counsellors/Therapists wanting to take their practice outdoors.
Tapping into my teaching experience, I put together a short workshop and ran it a couple of times over the year. This was an incredible experience in which I greatly benefited from the sharing and discussion that my colleagues brought to the session. It was such a positive experience that I continually developed it, eventually making it a full-day, experiential learning experience.
I have finally realised that outdoor work, and in particular Walking Therapy is an area that I would like to not only specialise in but also promote, train and develop further through the shared experience of the training process; Whitebeam is born.
Recently I have enrolled as a postgraduate student and will be focusing my research on Eco-therapy in general, with a special interest in Wilderness Immersion Therapy.
