Already the leading counsellor training centre in the East of England, JHD reaches a UK audience via online level 1 and 2 courses and hopes to set up more centres across the UK for levels 3 and 4 over the next couple of years. JHD has a tutor/training team of 12 professionals in addition to the counselling team and a management team of 10 covering HR, Finance, Social Media, website/IT, Safeguarding, Supervision and Marketing.
