Welcome to Fegans Training. Our informative and affordable training benefits a range of professionals that support families and young children, including counsellors, teachers, social workers, refuge works, foster and adoption parents, and family support workers. Occasionally, specific topics or approaches may mean that the training is suitable for delegates working within a therapeutic environment.
Our ‘Working with Children’ course welcomes counsellors who have trained in different modalities and will encourage participants to share their own experience and theoretical bias, methodologies and insights. The content tends towards integrative,person-centred and psychodynamic principles; however there is no expectation of prior knowledge or understanding of any one of these modalities.

Jonathan Hartley: Supporting young people facing bereavement and loss

Chris Brown: Working with diversity
Friday 22nd June, 9.30am-4.30pm
This workshop will take you from ‘talking the talk of equality’ to ‘walking the walk of equality’. Sometimes this intrapersonal and interpersonal work can painful. Chris facilitates a respectful learning environment in which counsellors can be open to exploring honest trans-diversity, transcultural and trans-racial communication. Such an environment acknowledges the differences and similarities between people and provides the equality of opportunity to own, explore and then potentially minimise the impact the roles of ‘oppressed’ and ‘oppressor’ society has imposed upon us as groups and individuals; that we may better understand ourselves and our clients. This training day will benefit a variety of therapeutic and interpersonal disciplines.

An excellent mix of theory, practice, interaction, and
real life examples which has led to me feeling well equipped to launch out and work in a child-led way.
Also excellent and very detailed notes were provided.
After four training days with Fegans, I feel like I
really know what I’m getting. They were really good days,
with very strong teaching. Thank you.
The combination of theory and opportunity to experience role play and practice for me was very helpful.
Open discussion within the group and time to process was also really helpful. There was plenty of time and
it was not rushed.
