Welcome to Dunamis
Dunamis Therapy Hub
is a private counselling college based in Crowborough, East Sussex that offers various counselling related courses
Counselling is a therapeutic relationship to facilitate change for a discomforted client. People enter into counselling so that they might find a more satisfactory way to live.
The route to becoming a counsellor or having a career in counselling/therapy can be a little confusing. There can be a lot of jargon and lack of clear, streamlined advice. However, we can help you.
Our East Sussex based Counselling College, Dunamis Therapy Hub, offers a range of counselling related courses suitable for you. Gain counselling qualifications or attend our CPD (Continual Professional Development) sessions.
Our one day Studio Events are CPD (Continual Professional Development) events that are open to professional counsellors and students who are in training at Diploma level.
Sara Bishop MBACP (Accred)
Director and Founder
I am an experienced therapist with over 26 years experience of private practice with a special interest in trauma. I love sharing my passion for the wellbeing of people. As a trainer of adults I enjoy seeing students push themselves to their true potential. I believe that education needs to be fun, humorous and that the stories we tell each other go to the heart of the human condition. I believe in the marvelous way people find creative solutions to their issues.
Sally Valentine MBACP (Accred)
Director and Founder
In 1993 I gained a diploma in counselling followed by a diploma in supervision. I have been in private practice since qualification. I Then trained in person centred art therapy. I am interested in trauma and the impact it has on people and have trained to diploma level and attended many courses on the subject. I am also BACP (Accredited)
My area of interest is working with children and adults with ADHD, ASD and other similar conditions.
Sally Valentine was my tutor and trainer on my counselling diploma training 2011- 14. She was inspiring, generous, and practical in her approach and I now have a very busy private practice. I continue to be inspired by her teaching in my work and cannot recommend her highly enough.
Andrea Ostle MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor, having started my own counselling journey in 2012. Alongside my private practice I spent 6 years working for a counselling charity where I am now a trustee.
I believe counselling training is one of the most exciting, challenging and fulfilling prospects a person can undertake and I am passionate about experiential learning which enables students to begin to really know themselves as they move towards becoming fully qualified counsellors.
