The Grove is really proud of all the fantastic reviews we’ve gathered from professionals who have attended our courses. The voices of our customers are very powerful. We are grateful for all the valuable feedback. You can search and read these genuine comments below.
Our learners come from a range of work roles, such as private practice, clinical leads and supervisors in NHS roles, or service managers in counselling organisations. Other people who join our courses use their learning to work with children and young people, bereavement services or palliative care, or in education setting like schools or colleges or universities.
Many participants are drawn from charity organisations serving populations such as the LGBTQ+ community, refugees, or survivors of sex crimes and domestic violence.
We are also glad to welcome a diverse range of backgrounds and characteristics of the learners in our cohorts, which enriches the learning experience for all involved and spreads enhanced practice into those communities.
The Grove has changed my practice forever and I am very appreciative. Keep up the amazing work.Daniel 2022 trauma course
Coincidentally, I took on my first couple during the course and found what I had learnt was invaluable, particularly around contracting and the initial session.Andrew 2020 couple/relationship course
This course has given me the confidence to work with clients who has experienced trauma in its many forms in a safe and empowering way for clients. I was able to start use the psychoeducational tools we were taught straight away and I could see that having knowledge about what happens to the brain and the body as a result of trauma really helps clients make sense of what they were experiencing. The EFT element of the course gave me the skills to practically help clients unblock trapped emotion and as a result of the course I am now going on to qualify to be a EFT practitioner.Emma 2020 trauma course
I think the resources such as WOT, plus PTSD information have been the most useful practically. I was able to start using them with clients straight away and the concepts and ideas really resonate with them and enhance the work we do together.Emma 2020 trauma course
Success stories are individual stories. Each attendee will bring to the course their lived experience and positionality.
So we are very pleased to see diversity in every cohort, which enriches the learning experience for everyone. Working with difference is intrinsic to the way we run our courses.
We have welcomed learners who let us know about dyslexia or ADHD or hearing loss or that they will attend the course with their guide dog.
We circulate course materials in advance of each teaching date, to enable each participant to familiarise themselves according to their own learning style.
These are some of the practical things we can do to support engagement in their course learning. Yet there is always more work to do in supporting inclusivity – and we are open to hearing from each student about their educational needs.
Our commitment to inclusivity is enshrined in The Grove’s Diversity and Respect Statement.
