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.

Nick Langley, NCS Snr Acred Counsellor

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.

Right now

Right now, I am offering various CPD events that are either set outdoors or directly support particpants in developing an outdoor practice.

In development

The early stages of a qualification in Outdoor Therapy are under way and this should be available early 2021.

The future

I'm very excited about some of my long terms goals and will continue to update my website and social media followers as they come to fruition!
