CALL US: 01202 859354

A professional and quality counselling training centre

Redlands provides high quality, accessible counselling training through to qualification and beyond. We provide personal skills training and related services. We work with a team of dedicated and experienced professionals who are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or a similar professional association.

Our Vision

Our vision is best summarised by this quote : “I believe that everyone can improve their listening skills, and by doing so, the world would be a better place”.    Paul René, Founder.

Our Mission

At Redlands we strive to provide a welcoming, humanistic training centre and counselling service. We relate to individuals, groups and organisations in ways which enable all to lead purposeful, meaningful and fulfilling lives. We aim to continue to grow and extend our offering across a wider radius, as we develop online courses that are available throughout the UK and further afield.

Our History

Redlands was established in Bournemouth in 2008 by Paul René. Paul leads a team of tutors, supervisors and group facilitators for the delivery of CPCAB counselling training courses across our centres and online. We are established in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Salisbury for in-person teaching. As part of the qualification training we also provide an in-house counselling placement service for students who need to develop their skills as practitioners. Post qualification courses are continuously developed for our graduates and we welcome students who have begun training elsewhere.
