The Minster Centre provides professional training in counselling and psychotherapy and an affordable therapy service, the MCPCS.
Founded in 1978, we are now one of the longest established and leading Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling training institutions in Europe. We cater for around 300 diploma and MA students each year, as well as offering a range of short courses, accreditation programmes and continuing professional development events.
We are proud to offer a unique perspective of psychotherapy and counselling training, as we combine a strong theoretical integrative grounding with an emphasis on the importance of experiential learning.
Contemporary Psychotherapy, an eJournal for psychotherapists of all modalities, aims to be progressive, inquiring and creative, to encourage interactive debate with its international readership, and to address rather than avoid the possibly contentious.
"I thought there was a good balance between teaching, experiential work, role play and discussion and the different characters of the course facilitators complemented the overall process very well."
"The structure was excellent, boundaried, clear and always seemed to get consolidated and with a constant view on integration. Excellent, I'd recommend this to anyone."
"The course fully met my expectations. I learn best from a mixture of theory, practice and experiential, which I felt the course gave in a balanced way."
