Welcome to Langley Therapy & Training. Here you can find the information you are looking for regarding our Therapy, Supervision, Counsellor Training and our Workshops and Short Courses.
Langley Therapy was born in 2008 as a partnership offering counselling and psychotherapy. We began by working within the NHS, commissioned to provide time-limited therapy, and grew to develop a service used by a number of GP surgeries in Hertfordshire. Alongside this we built a successful private practice, which is still operating today.
The organisation has since developed to present counsellor training, CPPD workshops and short courses. In 2016 we began running courses awarded by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB), specialising in offering the Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
We now offer the full range of CPCAB courses, as well as many other short courses and workshops. Please see our training page for more info.
Caroline Nicholas is the director of Langley Therapy and Training. Caroline has been a working therapist since 1999. Please see ‘about us’ to find out more about our team.
We are based in a beautiful countryside location, on the borders of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Our environment – the barn – is quiet, unique and private – a wonderful place to work and study. We are easily accessed and have plenty of parking!
Whatever the reason for visiting this site we hope you have found what you need, if not, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
** COVID-19 and Langley Training **
Like the rest of the world Langley Training is adapting as Coronavirus continues to impact our every-day lives.
We will be following the government advice closely and adhering to the guidelines as we begin our annual courses this year.
We are very fortunate at Langley Training to have our own private venue. The barn has an exclusive entrance, kitchen and toilet so we do not have to share with anyone other than our immediate peers/tutor. This way we can ensure it is sanitised and is as safe as possible for all of us. There will be some guidance at the venue.
We intend to begin our courses face to face, whilst strictly following Government Guidelines. We will continue with this for as long as we feel it is safe for our students and tutors.
- During the sessions you will be in a group of a maximum of 12 people. This will be your ‘course bubble’.
- Hand-gel will be available on arrival and throughout the session.
- We will take your temperature as you arrive
- Anti-bacterial wipes will be available in the toilet and kitchen areas
- We are implementing a pre-course questionnaire to give us an indication of your situation at home
- Wearing face coverings will be compulsory during the session – to be revised as we go along
- The area will be ventilate as far as possible
- We expect all learners to have signed up the Government’s NHS Trace system so we can be informed if there is an issue within the ‘course bubble’.
- Cleaning measures, that comply with COVID19 regulations, will be in place following each session.
Last year we were forced to complete our course on-line via Zoom. Despite our reluctance to do this we learned a lot about change and flexibility. We also now know that our courses can still work well given the right commitment and dedication from the counselling tutor team and students.
We are putting these pre-cautions in place to try to keep everyone who trains with us as safe as possible, whilst also offering the courses in the way they work best – face to face. We will continue to evaluate the situation and risk assess on behalf of the group and tutors as the situation progresses. If we feel the risk is too high to continue with training at the venue we will offer the courses on-line, following the same structure and times.
Thank you for bearing with us in this uncertain time.
We are hopeful that we will all enjoy a great year of teaching and learning.
