Training Courses

Counsellors training and CPD opportunities.

There are a number of trainers at the centre, we offer CPD courses and workshops. We also have guest speakers and trainers who come in and offer a number of workshops.

We work alongside many organisations such as Cruse Bereavement UK, The Hospice of St Francis, The Herts and Beds Bereavement Alliance, The Counselling Foundation and various colleges locally.

We are available to teach for various organisations, alongside our own courses we run at the centre we do outreach courses too. If you would like us to come to your workplace we can offer a package that suits you.

Are you a lecturer and need a place to deliver? we can help with that! the barn has a teaching space for teaching different topics. If you are a trainer and want to deliver workshops please contact Helen.

We can offer courses and workshops on many topics such as:

We also run courses for complementary therapies such as ITEC courses if required. 

  • Principles and Practice of Complementary Therapies
