We have an experience teaching team who have worked closely together for many years. All of our tutors have an open-minded approach to practice and a desire to encourage each student to develop their own individual style. Our tutors include: Ian Watson, Anne Waters, Sally Holligan, Paul Francis, Angie Jackson, Beth Tyers, Dave Evans & Deirdre Moon from the Lake District, as well as Lee Pollack, Robert Bridge, Lorraine Grayston & Drusilla Heywood from London. We also bring occasional guest tutors into the course who have skills in a particular area.

Regional Tutors
We have a network of regional tutors who support our students with their casework. A small number of students are allocated to each practitioner, with whom they can meet on a regular basis between the course weekends for help, support and guidance. Our tutors encourage you to practice what you have learned and to develop trust in your own unique way of working. This is an invaluable part of the training and is included in the course fee. We have a regional co-ordinator for each course. Joyce Ormesher is the co-ordinator in the Lake District and Katherine Armitage in London.
