“It’s been fantastic and I’ve enjoyed learning about the community. I want to have a deep understanding of the barriers the community faces and this course has been so insightful.”
“A transformative environment for learning and reflection was created between the group members and tutors. This nurtured a group dynamic that allowed vulnerability, personal experience and deep learning. I was constantly surprised by how much personal experience combined with learning has already impacted positively on my own personal life, relationships, and career perspectives. This course is transformational – thank you so much!”
“The opportunity to be in an LGBTQ+ space with such lovely people was really invaluable. To have interesting discussions about things I knew nothing about has been life changing. Liz has been great. She’s helped me understand a lot about myself in this short time and there’s plenty I will take away and work on.”
elop’s Training and Education Service delivers high-quality, industry-approved training programmes to organisations working with the LGBT+ community. As a specialist in LGBT+ Mental Health and Wellbeing, we raise awareness and help organisations become more LGBT+ inclusive and affirmative.
Our training programmes get people talking, thinking and planning for change that makes a real difference to LGBT+ people.
Our highly rated Foundation Certificate in LGBT+ Affirmative Counselling is underway for the Spring. Registration for the Autumn course is now open.
This unique course is currently the only LGBT+ Affirmative Counselling Certificate in the UK – and the only counselling certificate that is taught in a Queer environment. We recognise that maintaining health and well-being requires all our ‘whole self’ to be addressed, so we place LGBT+ experiences at the heart of our training. It is open to all LGBT+ community members and allies and is suitable for people ready to start their counselling journey – and those who work in support roles and want to gain additional counselling skills.
Successful completion of the Foundation Certificate is an entry pathway to elop’s professional counselling qualification, which will launch in 2024.
