CPD and Placements
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Riverside’s highly regarded and stimulating CPD Programme aims to offer Saturday workshops that are open to therapists from all backgrounds. For those who are qualified or still in training, or even for those who just have an interest in counselling and psychotherapy.
Workshops are delivered by leading clinicians across a range of therapeutic specialisms, and sessions may be used as proof of CPD towards re-accreditation. A CPD certificate is issued at the end of each workshop.
Our workshops offer rich and varied opportunities to deepen your expertise, to meet with local fellow practitioners and to discover new ideas to support your practice. They are usually held at the Friends’ Meeting House, 45 Northfield End, Henley, RG9 2JJ
Directions and parking
You enter The Meeting House through the metal gate to the right of the building and walk down a short alleyway where you enter through a green door to the left.
Please note that there is only limited parking at The Meeting House, therefore you may wish to investigate alternative parking in Henley and give yourself ample time to reach us. Participants in the past have parked at the Henley Rugby Football Club or Waitrose (up to 3 hours) in the town centre, both have pay and display parking.
Booking and Cancellation: Bookings are provisional on receipt of a booking form and the correct fee. Refunds or credits will be issued up until 7 days before the event.
Cost: £30 (£20 concessionary rate for students on BACP or UKCP accredited courses & Riverside Associates: past counsellors, trustees or volunteers of Riverside)

Opportunities for Counselling Placements in South Oxfordshire
Riverside Counselling Service is a vibrant, growing organisation that ‘thinks’ psychodynamically, but offers placements to work with adults and young people to those undertaking accredited trainings in psychodynamic and other modalities. Students have the opportunity to work in a number of locations: Henley, Wallingford, Didcot or Berinsfield. We currently have around 50 counsellors volunteering their time.
