History & vision

Coleridge in Wales was formed to provide missing links in British culture. We are based in Wales. We’ve grown quickly because people respond to the way we work.

In modern busy life people aren’t accustomed to being listened to. But we listen carefully. We understand a philosophy of relationship that has been lost in many of our organisational cultures and public life.

People are relational beings. As we talk about this, and show it, people begin to remember what working together is all about.

We provide person-centred facilitation, listening closely to you and your colleagues, community, business or venture and make space for new things to happen.

We’ve been working on some high profile faith projects in recent years and people sometimes ask us if we are a religious organisation. We’re not. We provide facilitation and a leading influence is the great American psychologist Carl Rogers whose work is secular. But we understand Coleridge who is a fabulous British theologian. This allows us to conduct facilitation in the area of faith and culture, as well as community, environment, education and business. Our work is for everybody.

You’ll find the story of how we began our offer and work in the following article from the Institute of Welsh Affairs Magazine from 2015.

Our work is underpinned by insights from psychologist Carl Rodgers.
