Why not combine your training with a holiday break in beautiful Bedfordshire?

Bedfordshire is a bit of a well kept secret, set in the rolling Chiltern Hills. In the south of the county, you can find Whipsnade Zoo, Ashridge House and Gardens, the Natural History Museum at Tring, Woburn Estate and Safari Park and the picturesque villages in the north of the county where you can visit the jewel in the National Trust’s crown, Wrest Park, the Swiss Gardens at Old Warden with the impressive Shuttleworth Collection and lots more.

There is also plenty of excellent, local accommodation and parking at the venue.

Chalgrave Hall is set in the pretty hamlet of Tebworth, neighbouring open countryside and within walking distance of the Plough Inn; a quintessentially English thatched pub which offers good quality, home cooked food.

Diploma graduate Tracy Georgio says:

'I've never had such comprehensive training before where so many useful and practical techniques and skills were given to me. The course was fast paced and dynamic. There was lots of information but it was still accessible so I didn't feel overloaded.

I'm now delivering a six week confidence building work shop for women all based on what I've learned on the Diploma and it's being so well received.  I'm about to put in for promotion within the NHS and I fully intend to take the Fusion Model with me on my professional journey.

Thank you. You have given me so much professionally.'

'Fusion teaches you a fast, effective way to diffuse stress and take control of your emotions. It's deceptively simple and includes lots of fun techniques and exercises which will appeal to children of all ages.'

Sally Brown Psychotherapist  and Health journalist

'Having recently completed the Fusion training programme I can see how the education sector would benefit from this practical, new therapeutic coaching model. The combination of fast track training and holistic, mind management skills would help staff, students and parents alike.

Moreover, Frances is an inspirational and engaging trainer. A highly-skilled facilitator, Frances is responsive to learners’ needs, flexible, good humoured and positive in her approach.I whole-heartedly recommend both Frances and her approach to all who are committed to helping others to move in the direction of accomplishing their full creative and constructive potential.' 

John Perry, MA, MA, MA, MSc, FHEA, Principal Teaching Fellow, University of Southampton.

'Specifically the psycho-education and many of the tools that we all took away in our toolkits are very adaptable to work in schools, with children and in terms of staff interaction and consistency around the children, and families.'

Steve Dilworth D Prof MSc  

Freelance facilitator of reflective practice

'One young woman only had 5 sessions and her conclusion was 'I feel I have the skills now ..'. She was wonderful and I remember the moment when she just so 'got  it'. You might have heard the pennies drop all those miles away.

Anyway lots and lots of learning thanks to you.'
