The CPD courses and training programme we offer are at three levels; introductory level, intermediate level and advanced level. CPD courses are structured to meet your developmental needs. We aim to build confidence through theory discussion and application to practice.
We encourage people to join at the level that is appropriate to them and which meets their needs:
If you are looking at becoming a therapist and would like to explore options, our introductory courses are an excellent starting point.
Alternatively, as a beginning counsellor or therapist, you may want to build your confidence in seeing clients and expand your knowledge and understanding of how to work with people effectively.
We offer a range of workshops designed for those looking at counselling or psychotherapy as a career and for the counsellor or therapist who is new to practice. Workshops are highly interactive and practical. In addition, we aim to make the focus of sessions is to introduce easy to apply ideas and ways to work in a supportive and positive learning environment.
Introductory level workshops include large and small group work and experiential learning.
As a practitioner with some experience you will be building an understanding of your developmental edges. As you continue to work with clients you will want to expand your knowledge of how to work effectively. Intermediate level courses explore specific presentations and problems as well as look at other theoretical approaches. Our workshops focus on theoretical models for understanding. Above all, they also include practical ideas and ways to work in a supportive and positive learning environment.
Sessions incorporate large and small group work and experiential learning, along with useful resources to use in counselling and therapy sessions.
Also part of the CPD programme are the Evening Seminars. These are once a month on a Saturday evening. Seminars are on a variety of of topics, we invite a speaker to come along and speak to us for an hour and half on a subject related to transactional analysis they are interested or passionate about. In addition, these seminars are an opportunity to network and socialise with other professionals.
As an experienced practitioner, you will be developing areas of specific expertise and interest in your practice along with understanding your professional development needs. That is to say, your CPD activity will be about supporting your growing expertise or preparing for final examinations.
The range of workshops we offer for experienced counsellors or therapists include sessions on advanced theory and work with complex clients and presentations. Sessions include large and small group work along with opportunities for case discussions and supervision.
