Professional Development

We provide workshops and training events for counsellors, psychotherapists and other related professionals looking to enhance their knowledge and skills in counselling related theory, practice and particular areas of work.  Our trainers have a range of backgrounds and specialisms and offer theoretical and interactive experiential learning in their approaches. Online booking and payment now available.

Following recent government advice and with immediate effect, all public groups at CFC are suspended. 


This means that we have had to postpone all our planned training until further notice.  


Please be assured that will be returning to normal service as soon as possible with new dates for you to attend your chosen training course.


In the interim if you require a refund or any further information please contact:


We apologise for any inconvenience.
