About Grounded Learning Ltd.

Grounded Learning Ltd was founded in 2016. Dr Tricia Joyce and Christine McCann formed their new partnership in 2023 after working together for a few years creating and delivering the fully validated Diploma in Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2020.

Grounded Learning Ltd (SC670565) was founded in 2016 to deliver the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills and other counselling related courses. Tricia was joined by a growing number of experienced practitioners and trainers committed to bringing training to areas where there are often barriers to learning such as fragmented transport links and timetabling.

With combined experience the Grounded Learning Team have developed counselling and support initiatives for individuals and families within Education, Health, Corporate and Third Sector for over three decades.  Also working in private practice, service management, supervision, and training.  With expertise in Pluralistic, Person Centred, Existential, Psychodynamic and CBT modalities, their breadth and depth of experience become apparent in the quality of content and delivery of courses.

Their shared passion and commitment for supporting students to become ethical, competent, capable, and reflective practitioners in their field drives their enthusiasm in taking a lead role in developing and delivering the courses offered by Grounded Learning. They have developed and currently deliver the Accredited SQA and Fully Validated COSCA Diploma in Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy and continue to expand their team to include homegrown counsellors and trainers as well as drawing trainers from the professional landscape to join the team.
