As we move into the final weeks of summer, we hope that you have managed to get some rest and respite to take you into autumn with renewed energy. The poet, William Cullen Bryant, described autumn as “the year’s last, loveliest smile.” How lovely to have that to look forward to!

With shorter days and the changing light, autumn is often a time for new beginnings, resolutions and reflection. Perhaps, a time to invest further in your professional growth and in what sits at the heart of your role in frontline practice – relationships.

If you are curious about a relationship-centred approach, or want to develop your knowledge and understanding, we have several training opportunities starting in October. Available in-person and online, they are all highly subsidised to ensure that they are accessible to all, in keeping with our mission and vision.

As a small team, we look forward to welcoming you into these warm and welcoming, safe and facilitated spaces ahead.

As always, if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Robyn Pinkham on
