Counselling and Psychotherapy Team CPD event

By Jul.25, 2018

The Counselling and Psychotherapy Team  held a CPD event for all our Industry Partners – comprising of our placement providers.

This has been running now for 5 years and is the creation of James Barrott and Dr. Mark Widdowson.  It is an opportunity for our placement providers to sample a taste of the contemporary teaching that is on offer from our fabulous and talented team, to network and get more information about our programmes.  It’s also an opportunity for us to be in tune that what we are teaching our students is what our industry partners require for their employees.

Idyllic Forest

Sample sessions included sessions from Peter Jenkins on the GDPR requirements.  Peter also signed copied of his new book: ‘Professional Practice is counselling and psychotherapy’.  Other sessions included Transactional Analysis for anxiety – Dr. Mark Widdowson, creative supervision – Maria Kefalogianni, group work with young people – Leigh Gardner, compassion focussed therapy for trauma – Dr. Elaine Beaumont, trauma sensitive mindfulness  – Tim Duercen and James Barrott gave participants an opportunity to experience ‘outdoor therapy’  near Peel campus – who knew there was an idyllic forest setting there.

Feedback from our industry partners was excellent and we were able to announce our Supervision course starting in September.


“Just to say a very big thank you to you all for such an interesting and creative day on Tuesday. The organising was super and things ran so smoothly. It is lovely that you are able to reward placement providers in such a way and we are both grateful to have been included”
