Advanced Courses

We understand that some subject areas require more in-depth learning, either to enhance your skills in your current practice or to enable you to work with different client groups. We therefore run a programme of longer training courses to complement our ‘A Day With……’ series.

Details of our next one-day CPD workshop will be available soon. If you would like to see something particular on our timetable, please email with your suggestions. 

Client Assessment Training

The client’s decision to seek therapy can be a momentous one, which makes that initial meeting so important. Assessment can be continuous and at times complex, requiring critical awareness and sensitivity. Sound assessment skills are therefore crucial to effective clinical practice.

Led by Maggie Sauven  MBACP (Accred.), this engaging and informative training took place on Saturday 14th May and Saturday 18th June.

If you would like to learn  more about our next Client Assessment training please contact us by email at or by phone on 01256 843125 and we will ensure you receive further information as soon as it is available.
