Intensive Professional Training

Intensive training is available for qualified professional clinicians and clinical teams that will allow them to develop their skills and to learn and immerse themselves in the specific clinical protocols used at The Bateson Clinic ®.

Whether you want to focus on specific aspects of a chosen disorder or want expert training in treating resistant disorders we can tailor-make a training package to suit your needs. We also provide ongoing coaching and supervision in the model as clinicians engage with and implement the model into their daily practice.

  • Evaluation: Evaluation and supervision of ongoing cases
