National Centre for Reflective Practice

Reflective practice is defined as the ability to reflect on one’s actions so as to engage in a process of continuous learning.

MB3 is the perfect place to do just that. It’s calm and peaceful: a safe space to participate in workshops, events and experiences; to talk through difficulties in your professional life; to allow yourself to play and try new skills.

The environment at MB3, together with our expertise, will allow you and your team to slow down and be yourselves and to leave with extra tools and skills to take back to your everyday environments.


Reflect, Experience and Act (REA’s)

These are bespoke 2 day experiential training for those working withing a reflective and therapeutic environment. This training allows you to be with your teams to work specifically to create greater team awareness and performance in relation to multi-disciplinary work.

Our ‘Reflect, Experience, Act’ training timetable offers you the opportunity for reflection on your work and role in your own ‘facilitated’ temporary learning community.
