Taking place on 8 days during the academic year, our Online Advanced Training Group is for those who have completed formal training and want to stay connected to other practitioners in a CPD group. You may have some written work to complete or would like supervision or further theory input within a group setting. The Advanced Training Group meets 9,00am – 1.00pm UK time and are agenda days set by the members. Days may include elements of supervision, discussion, theory exploration, sharing articles.

Our learning philosophy is that adults learn most effectively in an environment of mutual curiosity, exploration, open communication and transparency. Our approach, therefore is to offer a training experience that is exciting, lively, liberating and structured. We encourage each of our students to fully be themselves and develop their skills and understanding to be the best psychotherapist that they can be.·
