The Reach Training School (RTS) was officially launched in 2001 and our courses have been accredited and/or endorsed by various governing bodies during that time.  These include The NCIP (National Council of Integrative Psychotherapists), The CMA (The Complementary Medical Association) and The NCPS (The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society).


However, since our inception in 1990 we have run a variety of courses, which include one-day and weekend workshops, and longer personal development programmes, over a number of weeks and months.  Our training has covered a multitude of topics, such as the role of cognitive neuroscience in mental health, the power of diet and supplementation to facilitate positive change, understanding psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics and how these sciences explain so much of human behaviour, enabling positive change.  Other training has included the role and importance of self-care, the keys to personal growth, and the centrepiece of our model, The Story of Health.


Since January 2005, we have run levels 2, 3 and 4 courses for counsellors and those interested in developing counselling and psychotherapy skills.  However, due to the popularity and expansion of our 3 postgraduate courses, we no longer offer the introductory level courses (as of December 2021), as the numbers exceeded the capacity of our current training team.  And so we decided that as there are numerous providers/training institutions that interested parties can access for these undergraduate options, we would focus on our priority, which is the postgraduate training programme, given its uniqueness in the field.


We have been running these postgraduate training courses since 2014.  The depth and breadth of these courses are unrivalled. If you take a look at the course syllabuses you will see that what we offer, both in terms of coaching and psychotherapy, is very different from what’s available elsewhere.  This is because our courses recognise the limitations of a siloed way of working – as we don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach.  We advocate and promote synergy as a necessary therapeutic strategy for the modern age.
