We are a specialist practice of experienced trainers, facilitators, mentors and coaches working across a variety of organisational contexts – from the NHS, education and public bodies to charities, voluntary bodies and social enterprises.  We are accredited and knowledgeable practitioners in our fields, and work closely with a range of delivery partners.  

Our 'supported self management' approach to all our work stems from our belief in developing the core principles of sustainable success  - self responsibility, resourcefulness and resilience.

We believe in working collaboratively with clients to ensure we deliver visible results on the ground.  We don’t offer ‘off the shelf’ training programmes.  Our programmes are tailored to clients' specific individual and service needs, workplace context and delivery outcomes.  Where possible, we align programmes with existing standards of practice so impact can be monitored and evaluated more easily.
