CPD Courses

KRD believes in keeping the core conditions of counselling alive with face-to-face CPD training. During these unprecedented times we have adapted a number of our CPD Training modules to be delivered on line.

“What a most wonderful training! Kate brought a wealth of knowledge to the course and created a warm and safe learning atmosphere throughout the whole day (and this virtually!). She ensured that everyone had time to ask as many questions as wanted / needed and didn’t leave any questions unanswered. I could have listened to her for hours more. I will be back for more training with KRD for sure!”. Rike, London. On-Line CPD Review, April 2020

We offer a broad range of Specialist CPD Training days to help develop your professional practice and keep your skills up to date.
