The training you need to become a confident
and skilled Couple and Family Therapist

Do you want to increase your skills and confidence when working with couples and families? Would you like practical training you can apply immediately? Would you like to learn from real life case studies, presented by an expert Therapist and Trainer?

The Couple and Family Training Centre provides practical, relevant and inspirational training in the specialist fields of Family and Couples Therapy.

Our training is tailored specifically for Therapists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers and professionals working in Mental Health.

Courses can also be tailored for large groups and corporations.

The Couple and Family Training Centre was founded by Jacqueline McDiarmid who has more than 16 years experience as a Family and Couples Therapist, Lecturer and Trainer. She did so in response to demand by new and experienced mental health practitioners who wanted more opportunities to build on their theoretical knowledge and advance their confidence when working with families and couples.
