Why is Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Important as a counsellor?
The BACP (British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists) which I am a registered members requires all therapists to undergo 30 hours of CPD per annum.
This is to ensure all members keep up to date with new ways of thinking, techniques and scientific discoveries. It also is an opportunity to refresh previous training and develop more specialised training.
Why is Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Important to me on a personal level?
As humans we never stop learning or growing - we are constantly work in progress. Always changed from moment to moment. I thrive by having the opportunity to learn refreshed ways of thinking and being. It also gives me opportunity to apply this fresh learning to my professional and personal life. Always on the quest for self-development.
