Continuing Professional Development Group

Members are sought for the Continuing Professional Development Group at Magnolia House which will begin in January 2015. The group is open to counsellors and psychotherapists from diverse theoretical orientations and attendance at the CPD Group may be used to satisfy the CPD requirements of the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and other relevant professional bodies.

The purpose of the Group is to offer an opportunity for counsellors and therapists to encourage broader thinking and develop new insights by exploring what it is to be a human being and why we hold the views that we do. Some of the questions asked in moral philosophy, such as “why are we here?”, “what makes something right or wrong?” or “could we ever be justified in breaking the law?” are questions that arise at different times of our lives and are relevant to counselling practice. It is also our aim to provide a space where counsellors can enjoy being together.

The Group will meet monthly for two hours and comprises of up to 6 counsellors/therapists. Commitment to the group includes regular attendance and a financial undertaking to pay for all sessions.

The fee for each group meeting (which includes light refreshments) will be £30. Please contact us at Hull and East Riding Counselling by e-mail to register your interest.

The BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists require registrants to be trained, qualified and dedicated to a high professional standard so that members of the public have some protection when choosing to work with a particular counsellor.

Registrants will become eligible for audit after one year on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and a percentage may be required to provide evidence of at least 30 hours of continuing professional development for each year and also to demonstrate how their chosen CPD activities meet the requirements.

According to the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists:- “CPD is a value of the Ethical Framework. As such the Register requires that all registrants agree to engage in the CPD process and plan, record, review and reflect upon their CPD in a structured way. By identifying development needs and areas of practice that would benefit from further development, the practitioner is also contributing to client safety.

It states that CPD can be defined as “any learning experience that can be used for the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of competence, knowledge and skills to ensure that the practitioner has the capacity to practise safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice. It may include both personal and professional development.”
