Learning and Courses (Workshops)

We believe that relationship skills can be learned and that it helps to talk about relationships with other people who are going through similar things. Our workshops can help you to put things in perspective, learn how to deal with difficult situations, restore balance to family life and keep time aside for you and those close to you. We have a range of courses that are delivered in our centre, at schools and colleges and we can design bespoke courses. Please see our current range below. Prices vary according to the course length and number of participants. Please contact our Reigate centre if you would you are interested.
