Continuing Professional Development

CPD Programme

The Minster Centre is committed to delivering high quality CPD opportunities for counsellors, psychotherapists and other related professions. Our current programme comprises monthly Friday evening talks on contemporary issues that are relevant for therapeutic practice and one day workshops led by leading experts in the field.

Our CPD events are reasonably priced to make them accessible for all practitioners and CPD certificates are issued for attendance. These events are popular and numbers are limited, therefore early registration is recommended. For any general enquiries about the CPD programme please contact


The Minster Centre CPD Refund Policy: Tickets for Friday night talks are non-refundable. Tickets can be transferred to another person or used for an alternative Friday night talk. Please contact to arrange this. Limited seats are available on the night. Places booked for weekend CPD events and workshops are refundable if we are informed no later than 1 month before the date of the event. In extenuating circumstances refunds will be granted at our discretion. For further information please contact reception.
