The Bridge

Training for life
by the relationship experts

The Bridge is the training arm of Relate Pennine Keighley and Craven and under its banner we are able to deliver an extremely wide range of excellent courses for private individuals, organisations and commercial businesses.

Below, you will find a brief account of some of our most popular standard courses, but please bear in mind that we are always very happy to work with clients in order to develop customised packages of training which will specifically address the issues of most interest to them.

Prices are negotiable and, wherever possible, we try to give charitable organisations and private individuals the best possible deal that we can.

To help you plan and think about how we might best be able to help you or you organisation, please note that our trainers usually work with groups of up to 12 people at a time, and that most of our popular courses can be delivered with the accreditation of the Open College Network (OCN)

For the general public

The Bridge offers a tried and tested road to personal development, better private relationships, improved parenting skills, greater confidence and self-knowledge.

This training can either be accessed in a traditional group setting, or, if you prefer, on a one-to-one basis.

For professionals in the healthcare and social care sectors

The Bridge is a fast lane to professional development, with tightly focused courses offering a wealth of strategies, skills and learning designed to help workers develop better relationships with their patients/clients, deal successfully with conflict, operate effectively in highly charged situations and develop a more sophisticated understanding of family systems and the internal dynamics of family relationships.

The Bridge can help business too

That’s because the courses we offer are all about improving relationships - both the internal relationships within a workforce and the relationships between companies and their customers. No business can get ahead if communications are poor, stress levels are high and customers are lost because of ineffective technique on the part of salespeople and telephone receptionists. The good news is that, with the help of the Bridge, many of these problems are easy to fix.

Quality Control

We guarantee that all the Bridge’s workers are all professionally qualified, highly experienced relationship counsellors and trainers. In addition, most of our courses also offer you the option of Open College Network (OCN) Accreditation.
