Is this CPD right for me?

This Couples CPD Toolkit course has been designed by a trained and qualified Relate Relationship therapist. With well over a 1500 client hours and a wealth of life experience, as well as being a trained Mediator and Adult Educator, Sj will run through the general aspects and tools to get you started with working with couples.

This course is jammed packed with videos (over 8hrs of video alone), it also has lots of exercises and handouts for you and your clients. Every module has printable slides for taking notes and a short end of module quiz.

The first intake to this course in June 2018 saw over 180 Counsellors learn the fundamentals of dealing with couples in the therapy room, gaining the knowledge, skills and confidence to work with couples. With the added bonus of a secret Facebook group for much sort after Peer Supervision, to help any professional transition to Relationship therapy and adding another target group to your practice.

You can claim a whopping 15 CPD hours for this course upon completion and you'll receive a certificate for your portfolio!

    I love the videos, compared to reading with many other online CPD’s, being dyslexic, reading can be lengthy and tedious for me, so its a great and a welcome change to learning for me. I have done several CPD’s online but they were very time consuming for me as they are a lot of reading. Being military trained, training was always done through practical application and learning, by being talked through the lessons with visuals, I find this the easiest and one of the best ways to learn. My compliments Sj, I feel this is certainly going to go far as a way of CPD’s of the future in comparison to many that just have material to read and then have questions to answer. Will certainly be coming back for more.

    I highly recommend this excellent course ! I have gained so much knowledge both personally and professionally and feel much better equipped when working not just with couples but any relationship problems within families as it has helped me to recognise the importance of the way we communicate our feelings and needs and enabled me to be in a better position to have the confidence to use what I have learned to help support and guide others in recognising how they can improve their relationships by using some of the strategies learned.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I want to get going now, when does it start?

    The course is quite in-depth so will take some time to complete but it is available now!

  • Is this a weekly course or can I do it at my own pace?

    The course is available in full so you can complete it in one go or you can spread your learning out at your own pace.

  • Is this a 'Live' real time course?

    No, all learning material is in way of Powerpoint presentation, video, handouts, quizzes etc so you can complete the course at your own pace.

  • Is there any support during and after the course?

    YES!!! We have a dedicated Facebook group where I will be there to answer any questions and support you in transitioning to work with couples. This is an invaluable group. There is Peer Supervision and I offer a 1 to 1 one hour conference support call to support you with your first couple if you need it!

  • Do I get a certificate & how many hours CPD is it.

    Yes, there is a Completion Certificate at the end of the course once you have completed 100% of it. This is a bumper course and you can claim CPD 12hrs.

  • Do you do any other courses?

    Yes, in fact The Counselling Academy launched in June 2018 and is the first largest platform of online CPD's in one place. If you have registered with us or purchased this course you will automatically be informed of new courses as soon as we launch them. We are also looking for tutors to join our Elite Tutor Team. If you would like to find out more please contact us.

  • How long will it take me to complete? How long do I have access to it?

    You have access to the full course for life so it's entirely led by you. The course is the equivalent of a 3 full day CPD workshop if I was to teach it physically.

  • Is the CPD Accredited?

    No - a CPD does not need to be accredited by anyone, it is continual professional development. Reading a book comes under CPD hrs for membership bodies and the certificate is ample proof of completion.

What are you waiting for?

The Course is available to start right now, so you can add this client group to your work/practice. With the added bonus of a fantastic lively Tutor group and one to one help if needed!
