Courses

We offer a range of courses for individuals and organisations wanting to learn about psychological health and wellbeing.

We work both from our training premises at Plumpton College, Sussex (with occasional workshops held in Chelwood Gate), online,  and in house depending on the needs of the client. From our premises we offer courses in counselling, psychotherapy, mindfulness, supervisions and other subjects. In house we tailor our courses to the needs of the organisation or educational establishments.

“Yesterday marked the end of my 4 years of TA psychotherapy training. What a journey of growth and discovery it’s been. I have met and shared so many rich emotional experiences with the amazing, authentic people I’ve met along the way. We’ve had tears, joy, sadness, pain, fear, anger, love, intimacy and everything in between and I’ve learnt to appreciate humanity in all its messy glory. And very importantly, we’ve had a lot of laughs! Thanks to The Link Centre for being such an awesome training centre and for supporting us with gentleness and compassion on our journeys. Oh and well done me- yay!”  Joanna Dice – July 2019
