Wendy Goddard


Sometimes during what can be a quite intense week of experiential learning emotions and anxieties may bubble up and feel rather overwhelming. The workshops are not for individual therapy although they provide a therapeutic space. Thus, this process space is to give you a safe and confidential place to talk through those thoughts and feelings. It is not strictly supervision but I am an experienced and qualified supervisor though now retired.

You can book a slot with me if and when required. The times available will be on the flipchart of the day’s activities.
