Our Philosophy……

CPD and PD are essential components of continuing to engage and provide ongoing effective practice with our therapeutic practice, in addition to providing enriching resources and points of valuable contact within our professional network and community.

At Macclesfield Counselling & Training Centre our continuing ethos is to provide affordable CPD master classes, courses and presentations which do not compromise on quality whilst integrating valuable learning into your practice as counsellors, psychotherapists or individuals from other helping professions.

All our trainers and speakers are highly experienced professionals within their chosen field of CPD and with collectively over 20 years of training and working actively within the profession of counselling, psychotherapy and supervision all our trainers share a continuing passion for enhancing the practice of other helping professionals, by sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience, and importantly providing a relaxed and enjoyable forum for learning.

In addition to our inhouse master classes and courses we develop and deliver training for many organisations covering a range of personal and professional development issues, and all our programmes and workshops are run by Practitioners, Trainers or Supervisors with many years of experience.

We hope that you enjoy visiting our site, and look forward to seeing you at some of our forthcoming events..
