Training with Aleph

Therapeutic Learning Workshop – Six hours.

(For a three hour workshop, please click ‘Other services’ on the menu bar.)

 Delivered at a mutually agreed venue

 £48 per person

During this six hour workshop you can learn about Therapeutic Learning techniques and the reasons behind them. This way you can help a child, young person or adult to feel comfortable with – and even excited by – the challenges of learning. You will also discover how to use therapeutic activities that can uncover some of the problems that arise in various learning situations, and look at ways to negotiate such difficulties with those in authority at school, college, university or the workplace. The workshop will also be of value to those who work with young people in further education or training.

Understanding Therapeutic Learning; Online Course (Fifteen hours)

£95.00 per person

This five week course provides an opportunity to look more deeply into the learning process and to call upon a wider range of techniques. I shall provide all the written information that you need, plus photographs of the activities that I use, and we shall arrange a weekly Skype if that is possible for you. The course enables us to communicate as regularly as you wish. You will need to devote around three hours each week to reading and writing about Therapeutic Learning. However, if you have a special difficulty with writing, you can make some audio recordings.

Understanding Therapeutic Learning; Personally Delivered Individual Courses (Twelve Hours)

£130.00 per person

You may like to receive a four week course in your own home, or at my home. This way, all the resources that I need to share with you can be seen and handled, any questions that you may have can be answered immediately and issues discussed straight away. Each session would be three hours in length and you would complete some of your written or recorded work in during our sessions. I provide refreshments during visits to my home.

What you can expect

I will share with you the principles that underpin Aleph Therapeutic Learning approaches and which make them effective, along with a range of original resources and activities. We look at the important issue of learning-related anxiety and how this will not be resolved without understanding and compassion. I encourage you to be creative and to see the process of learning in a new way. We see how learning can be gained when we allow diversion from a topic, and how expressions of discontent can be used to advantage.

Whether you take the individual course or the online course, you will be required to do some writing, or, if writing presents particular difficulty, to make some audio recordings. During the duration of a course or a series of individual sessions, I will provide unlimited support, and shall continue to provide that for the month after your course ends.


When using Aleph approaches there can often be an immediate improvement in the learner’s confidence and ability. However, because of the highly personal nature of learning, it may take up to four sessions with your own young person or with your student/s for you to develop a full understanding of their difficulties, and to choose the best ways to respond. In showing you my approaches, I do my very best to enable you to have your young person or your students feeling much more at ease with learning and far more trusting in their own ability by their fifth session with you. With the Aleph approach, almost all learners will begin to show more skillful use of language, both verbally and in written form.
