Who we are - and what we do.

About LCAP

Our Background

We’re a small group of therapists, educators and academics who left successful, senior careers in other fields because we had a passion for using the science of psychology to improve the lives of those around us.

We couldn’t find the advice and training we needed, so we’re creating it ourselves. 

We’ve spent decades simplifying and solving the most complex policy and operational problems the country faces, through work at the heart of the UK Government. We've since combined that with the relevant clinical experience to know what works in practice, to offer you the best contemporary training you'll find.
