Although we no longer operate from clinic premises, The Grove was first established in 2002 in the heart of London’s West End. Our company has grown organically from its original conception as a private psychotherapy service into its current incarnation, as a cutting-edge leader in the field of mental health training. Over recent years, our executive clientele generated demand for The Grove to implement coaching programmes and management training in an organisational setting, a challenge we have risen to with the same energy that has inspired all of our projects. Our leading edge courses for mental health professionals are available as self study programmes and through live training events.
If you like attending courses in person for experiential learning, take one of our live event courses where the tutors are present real-time with lots of discussion and skills practice. Or take one of our digital courses if you prefer self-study to learn at your own pace, with high-quality videos and downloadable course materials. Work with our trainers in small supervision groups to embed the learning.
The Grove is run by a team of four directors: Robert Rees, Sarah Paton Briggs, Elliot Davis, and Dr James Kustow. Before training as psychotherapists, Sarah and Robert each held high-level executive positions in international business. So they have a deep understanding of the managerial dynamics and organisational pressures that can arise in commercial settings, allied with a profound grasp of how psychological therapy can bring a more fulfilling perspective on life and relationships. Elliot Davis pursued a successful career in the arts before shifting emphasis to psychotherapy. He brings a trauma-informed view to working with individuals or couples.
