Upcoming Seminars

We provide cutting-edge continuing professional development (CPD) seminars for counsellors, psychotherapists and health professionals, including trainees. Our events are held in Marlborough and Newbury, and delivered by UK leading specialists.

I will certainly look for more workshops with Ruth. Please will you ask her back? Ruth has a gift for attuning to a large group with such attentiveness and sensitivity.

Christine was a treasure trove of info and was very engaging. It was enlightening, thought-provoking and gave me a myriad of ideas to take into my therapy room

I valued the experiential learning opportunities, energy and humour

‘I enjoyed all of it – lots of content but well paced.  The speaker was confident and open in presenting and engaging the audience’

“I particularly enjoyed the experiential nature of the event and that this was so skilfuly and tactfully facilitated.”

Christiane’s presentation was high quality & the day was very engaging. She gave a clear, concise and thorough view of relational trauma and therapist self-care.

I really appreciated the generosity and empathetic approach of this speaker and the participatory nature of the seminar

Speaker excellent, so concise and open, and the day was packed full of content. The experiential exercise was profoundly helpful.

This was a beautiful, balanced and well facilitated seminar

Pam was an excellent speaker.  A very relaxed, informative and enjoyable morning.

Very informative, especially in terms of the digital contract, and enabled me to begin facing my fear around social media and online relating.

Pete has been so informative, interesting, engaging and funny – so interesting. I would definitely attend another of his courses.

Thank you. I really enjoyed this and am going away feeling much more confident!

The small nature of the group and the peaceful venue was perfect for learning

Really great workshop. Good balance of theory and practical demo with questions. Also an excellent guided mediation. Thank you.

Lovely ambience. Perfect speaker. Great support. Intelligent layout. Great value for money.

I liked the group–size, helpful to promoting an atmosphere where engagement and participation is possible. Wonderful speaker dealing with a difficult, painful topic in a positive way that affirms the therapist’s competence.
