More Information on the ABLE model:

We know that most practitioners want to help and support their clients, and that they recognise the quality of their relationships with their clients as a key component of improved health and wellbeing outcomes.

However, the reality is that time pressures, uncertainty around boundaries, outcome expectations and the validity of spending time offering clients space to share their worries or concerns can limit one’s ability to respond appropriately.

This is where our ABLE training can help. ABLE (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen and Empower) is specifically designed to provide you with the knowledge, understanding and the skills via a brief intervention model to support practitioners to adopt a relational approach .

CPD-approved and evidence-based ABLE helps you to:

  • Become a more reflective practitioner and be more relationship cantered
  • Manage time better and be clear about the boundaries of your role and competence
  • Listen reflectively without feeling overwhelmed or needing to “fix it”, adopting a narrative of hope
  • Be proactive, build rapport, and establish trust with clients
  • Empathise and respond in a sensitive way to clients, while attending to your own wellbeing
  • Understand that the quality of relationships is a key social determinant of health and well being
  • Recognise relationships as both protective and risk factors in improving outcomes for clients
  • Empower clients to make their own decisions, building their capability and resilience
