Central London Location
- International reputation - SPCP has a reputation for innovation and the promotion of critical thinking in the field; members of its faculty are invited to speak throughout the world and the student body is drawn to the School's training programmes from across Europe, North America, Japan and Australia, as well as the UK.
Professional accreditation - as an accrediting body the School's courses lead to professional registration with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and eligibility to apply for individual accreditation with BACP.
Experienced faculty members - the School's permanent faculty possess a breadth and diversity of professional experience and have been at the forefront of developing innovative teaching modalities and programmes. We encourage academic rigour while honouring the experiential and interpersonal encounter and foster professional competence to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving field.
- A safe but challenging learning environment - class and group sizes are carefully limited according to the specific learning activity; we take care to provide a carefully structured human 'environment' to facilitate the personally challenging nature of the learning required of professional training in this field.
