We offer two types of CPD: training in facilitation in the Personal Synthesis Programme and one-day training for qualified one-to-one practitioners in using the Personal Consultancy approach. See Timetable and Price List for training dates and prices.
Personal Synthesis Facilitator Training
This training is for those who would like to implement Personal Synthesis Programme as a whole or as a part of other initiatives that are focused on developing personal competencies. No previous qualifications are required, although the training is most suitable for teachers, trainers, coaches, counsellors and other professionals who work with groups. The course equips practitioners with the necessary skills to run a complete Personal Synthesis Programme. The certificate is awarded on the successful completion of the training. We offer a 3-level structure of training:
Level 1: Introduction to Personal Synthesis
