Institute for Holistic Education

Current consultancies

Two major consultancy activities relating to professional training and development are our immediate priority.

Developing Interpersonal Skills Training in Higher Education

will support any project to support staff in developing interpersonal skills training for their students, for a department or faculty or a whole College or University and

Developing Higher degrees, workshops and short courses in Experiential and Human Potential Facilitation

will support the creation and development of experiential programmes in the field of Human Potential and Interpersonal skills development as a stand-alone programme or as part of a substantial facilitator development programme.


The Institute for Holistic Education was founded in 1982 in order to provide a small range of workshops not available on the Human Potential Research Project programme. It also also provided a vehicle for training workshops in Australia in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney; in Barcelona and Brussels. After James' early retirement from the University of Surrey, consultancy and training work continued for the Police Service at Pannel Ash supporting the National trainer training programme, and at Hendon and in central London supporting the Metropolitan Police Trainer Development work. It is currently active in Cornwall having conducted co-counselling courses and supervising teaching staff in counselling courses.


It publishes the co-counselling course manual and the forthcoming “Interpersonal Skills Training in Higher Education”. It also publishes William Emerson's “Infant and Child Birth Refacilitation”.
