Innovative, challenging and inspiring events



Follow us on...











































































































































As part of Wimbledon Guild counselling service,  the Counselling Training Team have been running seminar, conferences, and workshops for 16 years.


We provide an annual series of innovative, challenging and inspiring CPD events for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists. Through our events we present new ideas in thinking,  research and theory to help deepen understanding of the mind and help practitioners offer  best practice and increased confidence in skills and knowledge.


Our aim is to encourage interdisciplinary discussions between different schools of thought, by inviting some of the most  experienced speakers to contribute on range of multi modal concepts and latest developments in theory and research.
