Throughout the year we offer a number of CPD events for counsellors and psychotherapists. Details of these events and how to book will be uploaded here as they become available. Alternatively, you can join our CPD mailing list by emailing us at to be the first to hear about new events.

CPD is one of the ways that we raise the funds needed to continue working with clients so by coming along to our CPD events you are helping clients access the counselling that they need.

The workshops will normally start at 09:30 (with registration from 09:00) and end between 16:00 and 17:30. The price for each workshop is £65 or you can book two of the workshops listed on this page for £115.

Just Beneath the Surface: Using Creative Methods

Just Beneath The Surface: Using Creative Methods to Enhance the Counselling Process presented by Rosie Darlaston

You will explore a range of creative methods with a focus on sand tray work. Sand tray work is a gentle, silent, meditative therapeutic tool that enables your clients to explore ideas on the edge of their thinking. Unconscious thoughts and connections are helpfully made visible in this external 3-D world. Your clients can make connections with lost or forgotten parts of themselves.

You will be given the opportunity to reflect on your responses and to explore how aspects from the course may be used to enhance your counselling practice.

Cancellation Policy

CPD can be cancelled for a 100% refund up to 14 days prior to the event. Any cancellations made with 14 days or less will not be refunded.
