Here’s a list of some of the theories and therapies Alan Webster consultancies has provided training in, from 2009 – 2012:

  • Introduction to counselling and professional practice
  • Cognitive and behavioural therapies
  • Mindfulness
  • Narrative therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Life story work
  • Tauma therapy
  • Assessing for child sexual abuse

Here’s some of feedback from workshops and trainings:

  • Loved the small group environment. Enjoyed the experiential approach. Like working with real examples from our group. I got some great insights personllay – light bulb moments. Everybody got a say and was respectful of each other and accommodating. Excellent workshop. I really get it – useful tools for exercises – Love Greta’s style of teaching.
  • I really liked the listening, step by step easy to understand (approach)
  • Case analysis and going through the (practice) maps to clearly understand each step. I learnt the purpose, stages and benefits of narrative therapy. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to applying it to my practice.
  • All was helpful and useful. The stories and case studies
  • Thanks so much for your unselfishness in sharing your knowledge and wisdom and your playfulness – the reminder to have fun
  • Clear, concise description of key concepts
  • Greta is really inspiring and has helped me to have a better understanding around language in so many forms
  • Stories and role plays were most useful; actual cases and not theory; workers from other agencies contributing and a refresh of ‘older’ theories. I found it totally enjoyable and valuable to both refresh knowledges and increase knowledges and ‘tools’.
  • Most useful was the demonstration by you of how  “to do” the different styles in the larger group. Got to hear all ideas/perspectives, not just those of people in the small group
  • I enjoyed the workshop because of the depth of theory given and because I work in relative isolation, having a “team” around was great
  • Great to attend a workshop that is constantly on the move, and filled with appropriate theories. Very work related. A lot of the time I was relating the theories to past and present clients, and to work environment and colleagues.  Already planning about different methods of connecting with clients.

Thank you for this lovely feedback. Alan Webster Consultancies continues to refine and develop these trainings with regard to all feedback provided and with regard to research, literature and policy in these fields.
