Whilst the company’s head office is located in the Northwest of the UK, administrative and teaching staff are globally distributed, bringing together the expertise of lecturers and practitioners from around the world. Alef Trust has a highly loyal and engaged student and alumni community. Our students are based in some 40 countries, they come from all walks of life, and apply their studies in professional settings, such as counselling and therapy, coaching, policing, and business to name but a few.
In all our work we aim to foster wellbeing and health, cultural self-expression and inclusivity, ecological sustainability, and compassionate service to the world. Whilst being rooted in academic excellence, all our programmes encourage personal and professional growth through multiple ways of knowing, embracing creative, spiritual and somatic practices alongside intellectual study. Students from across all our programmes have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic international learning community, in which mind, body and spirit are equally honoured.
