Program Overview

Success Counseling is a process to help people become more effective versions of the people they want to be in their personal and professional lives. Success Counseling helps people understand why they and others do what they do, and how to use that information to create greater success and freedom in both their own lives and those of others.

The skills and concepts of Success Counseling have profound implications for the way we live our lives, especially in the realm of relationships. Whether you are a teacher, parent, spouse, counselor, manager, leader, or colleague, this workshop will have a direct effect on both your happiness and effectiveness.

You do not need to have any special knowledge to learn Success Counseling. Training is designed to work with both those who have no knowledge of the Success Counseling model and with those have had fairly extensive exposure. You will get a full picture of the theory and its applications and also will have time to develop skills that you can use immediately, both personally and professionally.

While we do not have any courses scheduled at this time, we would love to hear from you and may be able to arrange a course for your group or organization.

Success Counseling workshops

Three-Day Workshops

These three-day workshops give participants the basic concepts and skills they will need to begin using Success Counseling in their families, relationships, and workplaces. These trainings are pertinent to anyone and can serve as a base for those interested in going further in a specific field or area of interest. We also have two Advanced Trainings scheduled for those who want to upgrade their skills in their personal or work settings.

Customized On-Site Workshops

We also provide on-site services for institutions interested in having their staff, faculty or leadership teams learn to use these ideas. These trainings are individually designed to meet the needs of each organization, and can be short awareness sessions, longer trainings, or even duplications of our three-day workshops in the field.

We are also willing to set up weekend workshops for parents hosted by someone who is willing to recruit participants and handle local logistics.

Our chefs take special care to ensure our meals are nutritious, tasty, and include lots of options to satisfy a range of food preferences. Menus include cereals, eggs, breads, pasta, pizza, chicken, turkey, roast beef, sandwiches, soups, tacos, and plenty of salads, vegetables and fruits. Our kitchen provides vegetarian alternatives, and we take pride in the supplier relationships we have established with local growers and farm stands nearby in Vermont and New Hampshire. We do our best to accommodate dietary needs by not serving nuts, and by making vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options. Meals are served in our large dining hall.

Hulbert is located on Lake Morey in Fairlee, VT, surrounded by large playing fields and hundreds of acres of woodland. Hulbert’s accommodations are in our warm, winterized cabins. Each cabin has four bedrooms containing four beds and two full communal bathrooms. The cabins are within a short walking distance of the Main House.

I leave with clear goals and aspirations, both personally and professionally. Success Counseling is theory and practice combined, simple and complex, opening and connecting, empowering. The times flies. Your passion and commitment is evident.

As a teacher and school leader, the language of Success Counseling has changed the way I talk to and advise both students and colleagues. Now I feel I’m getting to the heart of issues and managing challenging situations with greater skill.

Success Counseling is very authentic and extremely relevant to my work in school and my life. The instructors really know and live the material they teach, and the training is first class all the way. I wish more of our teachers had the opportunity to take this training.
