Pathway to UKCP Psychotherapy

In todays fast moving world of social media and availability of online training we still believe that the classroom environment is at the heart and core core of all our professional training and workshops.

With live demonstrations from qualified psychotherapists of sometimes complex techniques and an opportunity to practice these to a minimum level of competence in a safe, confidential and supportive environment you can feel confident in the knowledge that you will be properly qualified to work with these therapies on completion of training.

We are aware that many delegates will attend these courses for personal development and quite often personal issues can rise to the surface during training.

All of our trainers are also fully qualified and accredited psychotherapists who bring a wealth of clinical experience to the training room and who are on hand during training to offer support in a safe and confidential environment.
