CPD Group

The Brighton Therapy Centre CPD group is a monthly professional development group for therapists who are working in independent practice. It is open to accredited practitioners, and those who are eligible for or working towards accreditation. The group offers the opportunity to develop and share ideas and aims to facilitate professional development in terms of integrating theory and practice, evolving a coherent therapeutic approach and articulating a professional identity. The group will also include the opportunity to consider any further CPD needs and identify future training options alongside strategies for developing your practice and career.

Brighton Therapy Centre recommends the group to psychotherapy and counselling graduates as a way of consolidating their learning and establishing their independent practice. The group is also suitable as CPD for more experienced graduate practitioners and for BTC referral scheme members including those who have completed further training in an additional therapeutic approach and would benefit from the opportunity to reflect on the integration of their more recent learning into an established practice.
