Training, Mentoring and Therapy retreats

Alison Fox Counselling Services Dorset use their unique experience and training to offer a range of Tailor-Made Training programmes in a variety of subject areas. We are able to provide individuals and organisations with the opportunity to delve into the world of self-discovery and professional development in a safe environment.

With our reputation for high standards and values, person centred approach, individuals learn resilience and robustness. Being in a safe and supportive environment enables change to happen.

Our fundamental belief underpinning our work is that, given the right support and resources, people can and do make remarkable changes.

Training and awareness programmes can be provided on workplace related issues including:

  • Mental Health … common issues, how to identify symptoms and offer support including….counselling what is it, how can it help and where can you access it?
  • How to achieve a healthy work/life balance.
  • Boosting Confidence, Self Esteem and developing resilience.
  • How to deal with and support individuals and organisations through loss, grief and the aging workforce.
  • Managing Stress – ways to prevent and deal with stress effectively.
  • Critical incident stress management – how can organisations be prepared for the unexpected?
  • Coaching and mentoring- what’s the difference between this and counselling- how can you set up peer support?
  • Mediation-who to turn to in times of conflict and relationship breakdown?
  • Mindfulness practice- creative use of time and space to support robust mental health.
  • How to deal with the impact of organisational anxiety and change management

The above can be delivered either one to one or in small groups. This has included students, newly qualified professionals, business leaders, managers, employers and employees. Organisations we have had the privilege of working with are from a range of industries such as accountancy, agriculture, business leaders, charities and community groups, Church leaders, education, finance, public sector, health, hospitality and retail. If you do not see the course content you need, please make contact to discuss your requirements.


Alison has delivered ‘Anti-bullying’ training to our member charities in the past and the feedback has always been excellent, on all elements of her training and delivery. We would be more than happy to recommend her.

Mentoring is a relationship between two parties, where one (the mentor) gives the other (the client) guidance and support to achieve agreed objectives. I use my broad range of skills and experience gained throughout my career including counselling, hospitality , human resource management, sales and marketing, small business and training to help clients review their operational and future plans, and act as a sounding board. Alongside this I seek to educate, encourage and support the client to find a balance of well-being within their whole lives.
