One-Day CPD

One-Day CPD

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.

Unless otherwise stated all of our CPD workshops are held at Friendship Hall, High Street, Weston-super-Mare (opposite our premises at Emmanuel Church). 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. Current counselling students are eligible for a discounted rate of £45 but please be aware that student places are limited. For more information or to book your place please email Claire at

Due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel all of our training events, with the exception of TA101.

We have made this decision because the health of our delegates, counsellors, trainer and their family, friends and clients are our top concern during the pandemic.

Anyone who has purchased a ticket will be contacted about a refund.

A decision about TA101 will be made closer to the time.
