Therapeutic teaching techniques
with Pat Capel
As well as being an HG practitioner, Pat has been working as a secondary school teacher for over 25 years: both as a classroom teacher and also working with children with special educational needs. Over this time Pat became increasingly aware that a growing number of those around him - adults as well as children - didn’t have the necessary skills or resources to cope in today’s demanding world. He realised that by combining what he’d learnt from his HG training with his existing teaching knowledge and skills he could make a profound difference to people’s lives – and we’ll explore how in just a moment.
