Attendee Testimonials

Our support group of counsellors booked Tom for a workshop on sexuality and gender that he delivered to us. It was a fantastic day of learning on a topic that is not covered enough in counselling training. Tom was interesting, knowledgeable and flexible, and shared a lot of his own personal story. Thank you so much for a fantastic day of learning.

Informative training that was given in an engaging way. Zoom training can be a bit dry! I liked the break out discussions and I felt particularly held by Tom as a facilitator in terms of competency, knowledge and an invitation to make mistakes and not know everything. 

Fantastic workshop! Tom was very knowledgeable about the subject and provided a safe space for us to explore the subject fully.

The workshop struck a perfect balance of theory/information and group discussion. Tom held the group very nicely and his passion for the topic is clear. I would recommend to anyone. 

I attended the Sexuality and Gender Awareness CPD Workshop in December and came away having learnt so much and an interest to learn more. The workshop was delivered brilliantly within a comfortable environment. 

I enjoyed the fact that someone was doing a workshop on a subject that effects them as well, that makes it more real, plus the way it has been presented, open and honest. Breakout rooms were great, given all of us a chance to talk and make connections. I believe that the amount of people attending was just right.

"As someone who is yet to work privately, I found the workshop to be very informative and provided me with guidance on where to start and the various things to consider. I found it particularly helpful to hear both your journeys to developing private practice and what worked and didn’t work for you as well as the tips. Throughout the workshop I felt very inspired and motivated to start developing my private practice and stop procrastinating! It was inspiring to hear how you both achieved this for yourselves and the various ways you continue to maintain your client base."
