CPD, Training, Workshops and Events

'Workshop' written on a sheet of paper pinned to a wooden board - CPD Training, Workshops and Events

Working with other trainers and facilitators, Counselling Matters puts on a variety of CPD workshops and training events for counsellors and the wider public. Most of them are held in our Crosby Road North office.

Upcoming Events

Due to COVID-19 all face-to-face events have been postponed and we are looking into providing online alternatives where possible. ‘Normal service’ will be resumed when we know what the new normal is. In the meanwhile, keep safe and well. See you on the other side.

EFT Training in Liverpool - a woman tapping on the sides of the eyes

Emotional Freedom Technique

We have offered accredited EFT Level-1 and Level-2 and plan to provide Level-3 in the future. EFT is a potent and relatively new form of therapy, which is also great for self-help.
Level-1 is open to anyone and provides training sufficient to allow you to use EFT as self-help and for friends and family. Level-2 in the minimum qualification needed to practice as an EFT therapist and is required for accreditation with EFT International, the professional organisation for EFT.

A study group - Relationship Counselling Course

Relationship Counselling Training

This relationship counselling course comprises 6–days of training spread over a 7–week block (there is a week off between week 3 and 4). It aims to give qualified counsellors the knowledge, skills and experience needed to enable them to work competently and confidentially with couples and relationships. The course combines theory with practical activities designed to reinforce learning and develop skills.

Working Creatively with Teenagers

Working Creatively with Teenagers

This practical workshop explored a variety of creative ways that adults can quickly form a strong rapport with this age group. It also considered some fresh ways of overcoming the inevitable “impasses” thrown up by young people.

We aimed it at all those working supportively in a pastoral role with primary and secondary age children: school counsellors, youth workers, primary mental health workers, learning mentors, home/school liaison workers and those who support Heads of Year
