About us

CTC has a purpose built training centre that was specifically designed for the delivery of training for trainee psychotherapists, taking account of the experiential and therapeutic aspects of such training and the need for a private, comfortable space to support such personal work. It is fully equipped with materials for use within the training sessions and experiential workshops. Adequate parking facilities are provided for all cars. Extensive gardens provide a recreational space for trainees to relax during breaks.

The philosophy of teaching that is subscribed to at CTC is that the role of the centre is to facilitate the learning of each trainee, that we have a responsibility to each trainee to support their learning, and that it is our job to make it as easy as possible for each trainee to learn as much as possible.  We see teaching and learning as two distinct, separate, processes. It is not enough for us to teach; we are responsible for doing so in a way that facilitates our trainees to learn as much as possible, including all essential components of the course. We believe that we can help each trainee achieve their innate potential by providing an appropriate, well prepared and enriched environment.  This includes providing a range of learning opportunities, facilities and resources, curriculum, supports, suitable trainers etc – a cohesive training package.
