Teaching packages


Which package is best for my team?

The bronze package is great for teams with new staff who need foundation training in Palin PCI and other members of staff who could benefit from Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). SFBT is open to all professionals as well as SLTs.

The Platinum option is an excellent package for larger teams who want to train up all staff to a foundation level and to support developing specialists in stammering. This package includes the added benefit of clinical supervision for 2 therapists following their training.  

How is the training delivered?

All courses are delivered online via Zoom in UK timezone (unless otherwise specified), so can be accessed from anywhere. There are some face-to-face courses available. All information is on our website.

Can I select my own training courses within each package?

Yes! The courses listed are simply an example of the combination of training courses you can choose. Depending on the package, you will be allocated a number of training days. You can then select which courses would suit your team best. The exception to this is the bronze package, which cannot be altered. We are happy to discuss what works best for you. Just email or call Sarah Caughter: [email protected] / 0203 316 8100 to find out more.

What are the benefits of booking team training in this way?

It’s much cheaper to block book our courses.

We have responded to feedback and demand from teams who are looking to train larger groups of therapists and want to do this in a more streamlined way. By training larger numbers of staff, you can develop a more specialist service, deliver more cost-effective assessment and therapy and reach more children and families affected by stammering.

Are the training courses just for SLTs?

All professionals can access the SFBT and Confidence and resilience workshops.

Palin PCI is open to student SLTs who are close to qualification.

All our other courses are for qualified SLTs only.

Are the training courses only relevant for a stammering caseload?

Whilst all our courses use clinical examples of stammering there are many transferable skills and activities that are beneficial for other caseloads. For example, PCI is used by many Trusts as a first treatment to boost early language development, and SFBT is a powerful therapeutic approach and attitude used by SLTs and other HCPs as well as in education and social work settings.


We can also run any of our workshops where you are based, in the UK or internationally. We also design bespoke courses to suit particular needs or time-frames.


Cost: Travel and travel time, accommodation and subsistence plus a daily teaching fee.
