CPD Workshops for Counsellors

For over fifteen years CMCS has established itself as a prime provider of counsellor in-service training which focuses on issues and needs in ministers and their families.

 

Each year from Autumn to Spring we arrange presentations of a Saturday workshop in different locations around the country - in alphabetical order these are Birmingham, Exeter, London, Manchester, and York.

 

These Workshops are open to all interested counsellors, but with a priority booking period and reduced fee for those who are members of the CMCS Register of Counsellors.

Feedback from previous Workshops

 

The Nov 2018 to May 2019 Workshops were on God in the Room: Issues surrounding faith dynamics. The facilitator was Rachel Hudson.  Here are some of the feedback comments received from counsellors who attended:  

 

"I didn’t know what to expect - I hadn’t been to a CMCS workshop before.

It was lovely, very comprehensive in scope and reflective."

 

"It was a very positive experience of connection, information and reflection on faith and therapy issues."

 

"Encouraged, refreshed, inspired. Thank you."
