To be at the forefront of the counselling and psychotherapy profession in providing a wide range of courses which foster the academic, personal and professional development of our trainees.

Our training has a reputation for excellence in both academic rigour and clinical competence and we aim to equip our trainees to become ethical practitioners and life-long learners who will not only continue to be at the forefront of the development of knowledge in the counselling and psychotherapy profession but also have a positive impact on the well-being of society.

We have a commitment to high standards in interpersonal relationships, characterised by mutual respect, collaboration, appropriate boundary and the celebration of difference.
