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.

MB3 is the ideal place for learning & professional development. It is the perfect environment for a safe and enjoyable experience that you can fully immerse yourself in. We hold many courses here however our main two courses are our LLE & TCEPT course.
