We deliver training to frontline practitioners working in the health, education, social, youth and community sectors in either a professional or voluntary capacity. Since 2001, we have delivered our evidence-based, accredited and evaluated training to over 1,000 frontline workers.

We offer a range of training programmes, including Brief Encounters®, How to Argue Better and Ag Eisteacht 4 Business, all built on our core values of time, attention and respect. We focus on relational capability as the capacity of people to establish and maintain close relationships, both at home and in the wider community, is a key determinant of health and wellbeing.
