The CBT'ers Club hosts regular Topic and Discussion Gatherings which are all well-attended by our Registered Members.
Topic and Discussion Gatherings constitute 3 hours of CPD and Certificates of Participation are awarded at the end of each gathering.
Topic and Discussion Gatherings include the discussion of a specific topic (e.g. depression, anxiety, accreditation etc), treatment plans, case studies, personal and professional experiences, video/film footage, as well as ideas, updates and other CBT-related news.
Previous Topic and Discussion Gatherings include: Working with Depression; Accreditation; Working with Self-Esteem in CBT Practice; CBT and Self-Harm; Challenges and Dilemmas in CBT; Anxiety and CBT Therapy; Using Psychological Assessment Scales in CBT and lots more! See Events and Gatherings Section for more information about upcoming events!
P.E.D.S stands for: Presentation, Experiences, Discussion and Skills. At the request of Members, we will offer P.E.D.S Gatherings a few times each year in addition to our usual gatherings. This ensures that we offer a variety of different meetings, gatherings and events..
P.E.D.S Gatherings will last 3 hours and involve a 30-45 minute presentation, or two-thress smaller presentations (Presentation) based on a specific topic or theme (e.g Personality Disorders, Depression, Eating Disorders etc.). The presentation will be followed by sharing our own professional (and personal) experiences of that particular theme/topic (Experiences). This will be followed by a discussion, (Discussion) and some skills-based activities and practice (Skills). CPD Certificates will be issued .
The CBT'ers Club Business Club is for psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches and other practitioners working in, or looking to work in, private practice.
Business Clubs take place take place on Saturday mornings (11-2) or weekday evenings (6-8.30). We alternate Therapist Support Groups with Business Club. This means that every 6 weeks we hold either a Business Club or a Therapist Support Group.
Business Clubs might involve: Advertising; Researching/Marketing your Business; Premises; Insurance; Networking; Writing Business Plans; Finance; Challenges; Online Presence; Admin; Support; and more.
Business Club might include, for example: group discussions; guest speakers, goal-setting (optional); sharing experiences; reading extracts/tips on private practice; short film/documentary extracts; peer support and making suggestions/offering feedback to other Members at the group. Of course, other suggestions are welcome - it's your Business Club and you can use the time and space in ways that are most relevant to you!
We aim to interpolate more 'general' Business Club meetings with 'specific' Business Club meetings that focus on, for instance, a particular topic (e.g. advertising) or a particuar aspect of business or private practice.
Clubs are friendly, informal, welcoming and supportive. Business Clubs give you a great chance to meet new people (or meet up with those you have already met through The CBT'ers Club), get support, share concerns, worries or ideas and feel less isolated in your work (being a therapist can be lonely at times, can't it).
Regular and new Members are welcome to come along. Click on the button opposite to see when our next Business Club is. Alternatively, please do feel free to get in touch with us - we look forward to hearing from you!

Being a psychotherapist, counsellor, coach, psychologist or practitioner - especially in private practice - can often be a lonely and isolating place, can't it?
You don't see other practitioners often, might not have anyone to discuss ideas with (except in supervision) or you might wish to connect and discuss work-related experiences and information with other people.
Well, it doesn't have to be like that. We aim to have two socials per year (summer and winter) in-between our more formal events and gatherings.
Social gatherings means we can have a wee laugh and some fun too! That's really important! Socials are friendly, informal and fun. They offer time to chat, make new friends and a chance to relax for a while over a lunch or a yummy dinner.
Come along, relax, makes new friends and have a lovely lunch or afternoon tea and some laughs with other Members!
We provide discounted Clinical Supervision to Members of The CBT'ers Club. We can also provide Clinical Supervision to non-Members.
PLEASE NOTE: we will begin offering Clinical Supervision in Summer 2018.
Clinical Supervision is extremely important in the psychotherapy and counselling professions for trainees, newly qualified practitioners and experienced therapists alike.
Please see Price List section for details of fees and the dedicated section here for more detailed information about Clinical Supervision.
