About CPD

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a term used across varying industries to facilitate the ongoing learning for individuals in their specific field, enhancing their professional skills. For counsellors, this can encourage their ability to practice effectively, safely and ethically, whilst broadening and maintaining their expert knowledge. CPD is a learning experience that works to update their specialist area of practice, whilst enhancing their qualifications to progress their careers. It also ensures they are continually updated and supported through new methods, instruments and research. In compliance with the BACP, a minimum of 30 hours of CPD is essential and our workshops are a suitable and engaging method of contributing to these hours. Although our CPD courses are aimed at counsellors and health professionals, they would be beneficial to all and we welcome anyone who might be interested.

Tame the Mind, Feed the Mind

Delivered by Ade Jevans

Saturday, 27th April 2019
9.30am – 12.30pm
The Hub, Dunmow

£35

Understanding how your mind works can help you improve how to better control it. So instead of it chattering away and you not achieving what you desire, you begin to learn how to master it. Along with the importance of diet on the brain function, these combined workshops will help you be a master of your own mind.

This workshop is split into two parts. The first covers how to tame or calm the mind. It introduces the mind and how it developed, explains why it works the way it does, and how to keep it under control. The second part is about feeding the mind, bringing awareness on how diet affects the mind and how making wiser food and drink choices can improve it.

During the morning you will learn:

  • more about how the mind works
  • what you can do to better control it
  • the effect of diet on the brain/mind
  • how small changes in lifestyle can improve your mind

A 3 hours CPD certificate will be issued upon completion of this course. Light refreshments provided.

Help at the Point of Need

Delivered by Windy Dryden

Thursday, 9th May, 2019
6pm – 9pm
Bush Fair, Harlow

£45

Insights from single-session and one-at-a-time therapies.

While Carl Rogers discussed the importance of the “core conditions” in counselling and therapy, clients often claim that what is also therapeutic is being seen at the point of their need rather than at the point of service availability. In this presentation, Windy will discuss the nature, principles and practice of single- session therapy (SST) and one-at-a-time therapy (OAAT) that have been developed to provide a response to that need and to reflect the fact that the most frequent number of sessions that clients have internationally is one. He will make the point that SST and OAAT work is best viewed as a mindset rather than as an approach and will stress that it can be practised by therapists using their preferred orientation.

Windy Dryden is one of the leading practitioners and trainers in the UK in the CBT tradition of psychotherapy. He is best known for his work in Rational- Emotive Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (RECBT), a leading CBT approach. He has worked in the field of counselling and psychotherapy since 1975 and was one of the first people in Britain to be trained in CBT.

A 3 hours CPD certificate will be issued upon completion of this course. Light refreshments provided.
