The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) is the largest professional association for members of the counselling professions in the UK with over 44,000 members. Membership ranges from student membership to accredited and senior accredited designations. Citizen Coaching and Counselling is an organisational member of the BACP and many of our counsellors choose the BACP as their professional membership organisation too.

What did the project involve?

Citizen Coaching and Counselling has worked with the BACP for many years to provide a number of continuing professional development (CPD) programmes;

Anger Management Toolkit CPD

Providing a one-day Counsellor CPD to support counsellors looking to build their confidence and skills in working with client with name issues. The programme included a practical skills manual, video resources and group discussion.

Grow My Practice

A one-day workshop to support counsellors as they set up, grow and develop their Private Practice. The day included a practical skills manual, video resources, group discussion and examples of marketing materials.

Private Practice (3 day workshop) Video Resource

We worked with the BACP Education Team to develop a video learning resource that was filmed over three days around the UK with counsellors and psychotherapists. Martin Hogg of Citizen Coaching worked with the BACP to identify a number of excellent speakers who presented their contribution to the programme on such diverse topics as the financial side, keeping safe and designing your therapy room.

Who was involved?

Martin Hogg has delivered these courses to counsellors and psychotherapists across the UK.

What were the outcomes?

Course feedback is something we value and look to continuously improve the course. We have worked with over 700 counsellors on BACP CPD courses and have received very positive feedback. Course participants describe increasing their confidence in the subject matter and felt the pace, delivery, design and delivery of the course scored highly.

February 2019- Our course feedback had a net promoter score of 65

How could the this project be applied to me or my organisation?
